Yesterday's breakfast - Chicken in Black Bean sauce for Moe and I was working yesterday so I took the same for lunch.

 

This morning Moe asked for more biscuits

Is the yellow one made with the spicier chile we refer to in the West as habanero?

The ingredients list doesn't specify which variety of chilli it is - in any of the five languages on the bottle. Most just say 'chillies'. The Chinese says 'yellow chillies'.

 

It is this brand, available from Amazon in the US.

To my palate, it isn't particularly hot (I don't know what your reference point is when describing a chilli as 'spicier') and somewhat sweet and sour, but not excessively sweet as so many can be. Both the bottle and the Amazon page says it is 100% chilli, which is nonsense. It also contains sugar, vinegar, salt and garlic as is made clear in the ingredients lists. The Thai says it is 53% chilli.

Re-heated “doggie bag” of Filipino noodles.  An excellent way to start the day.

Love your fancy pants carrots!

Thanks. Not too bad considering I did them at 5 AM!  But don’t be too, too impressed. I did use a vegetable cutter.

Poached eggs on little beds of rehydrated porcini mushrooms sautéed in butter and dry sherry, on toasted English muffins, scrapple and a generous portion of fresh, hot salsa.

@Katie Meadow, it depends.  If it is a day I don't work, I tend to make "breakfast" a little later in the morning so then he doesn't need lunch.   I'm not really a breakfast person.   

But on days that I work, and he has dinner for breakfast early , he will often just pick at something, like crackers and cheese or a bowl of soup or cereal if he gets hungry.

  Moe doesn't cook.

 

The advantage to being an earlier riser, usually between 3:00 and 4:00 AM is lots of time to cook in the morning. 

 

I presalted a half turkey breast on Friday and roasted it this morning.

Made Moe a roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings.    

Another work day for me so I'll take it for lunch.

Fresh ramen with pork.

Looks tasty but I’m struggling to understand the pork. Can you expand a bit on what cut it is and how it is prepared?

It's thin slices of tenderloin, simply pan fried with black pepper and salt.
