Posts Tagged ‘Yuzu’

Odds and ends.

The Cat saw a jar of preserved yuzu (sweetened) at Costco. Way too big. The Mouse bought a much smaller jar at the grocery store.

Preserved Yuzu

Think marmalade without the pectin, liquidy. Add a small amount to hot water, drink.

The Cat hasn’t tried yet. Caught a bug (maybe a cold). Needed tomato soup.

Tomato Soup with Cauliflower

A riff on an Andy Warhol. ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally, The Mouse “assembled” a bologna sandwich. A classic dad “no recipe”. Old school.

Bologna Sandwich

White bread, bologna slices (had to have the plastic red “skin”), and yellow mustard, Pop was not a Grey Poupon kinda guy. Nothing fancy, gets the job done. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be safe and well.

The Cat treated The Mouse.

Acai Bowl

The Mouse mixed the acai sorbet with yuzu lemon. Because it was Halloween, the dessert shop offered one free topping, The Mouse ordered crushed Oreo cookies. Mmm!

The cat order two scoops.

Two Scoops

Chocolate sorbetto and pistachio. For her free topping, The Cat ordered crushed mixed nuts. The chocolate sorbetto had deep chocolate flavor, light, and refreshing. Added to the list of favorite flavors.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

p.s. The Mouse bought The Cat a pair of pajama bottoms and a pair of travel chopsticks for her treat bag. ๐Ÿ™‚

Food Court Finds

Kinda part 2 from previous post. The Cat ran an errand at Macy’s, The Mouse browsed at the food court nearby.

The Mouse and The Cat found a few noms for dinner (small noms, not major entrรฉe stuff).

BBQ Chicken Maki Sushi

To The Mouse the sushi was like a hybrid between Japanese maki and Korean kimbap. Whatever, it was Mmm. The Mouse’s one suggestion would be to include a little kimchi.

So, while The Mouse was inquiring about his free bread, The Cat found (and bought) these.

Bakery Noms

Kuro goma (black sesame) mochi donut and yuzu (citrus) melon pan (or is it melonpan). Anyways, a kinda sweet bread roll. The Mouse thought he could taste yuzu zest in the roll. A good try try. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay safe and well.

Quiet Tuesday

Not too much happening food-wise.

The Mouse picked up a bottle of yuzu/salt/pepper paste to try.




Ingredients are yuzu, salt, pepper (dunno what kind of pepper, The Mouse is guessing black or white). Naturally smells spicy citrus. The Mouse needs unadulterated meat. Even tofu a distant possibility. Hee hee. No, more like meat. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dinner was super simple.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Peanut butter on whole grain bread, roasted Okinawan sweet potato, shiso leaves, Mandarin oranges. The Mouse trying to eat lighter, especially for dinner. Sleep easier. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

New “Toys”

OK, not really “toys” but new things for me to play with in the kitchen. Bought two new seasonings recently. The first is dried yuzuย zest.

Yuzu in a Bottle

I can’t wait to use it with vinegar or maybe sprinkled on fish or chicken karaage. I may even try and mix it with some dried orange peel. Hmm.

The second is ground Szechuan pepper (aka huฤjiฤo).

Ground Szechuan Pepper

This is the stuff that is supposed to define mapo doufu. Besides mapo doufu, I think I’ll sprinkle some on curry rice or even ramen.

We have some whole pods that I don’t have anything to grind it into a powder (I throw some pods into soups or stews). When I saw the jar, I had to get it (it’s a law). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stay tuned.
