Almost Missed It

Saturday breakfast. Hotel buffet (The Cat’s friend is still visiting).

Protein and Vegetables

At this point, I was done. The Cat and friend were still talking (in Chinese, don’t ask me what dialect), took one more turn at the buffet table (not to get more food, just to browse. Heh heh.

There they were, in a bowl with ice.

At first pass, thought they were some kind of DIY salad dressing, they were with the salad dressing. Had to study the contents for a bit for the lightbulb to go off.

Nattō!!!!!!!

Added the included mustard and sauce packet, and seasoned hijiki (seaweed) from the salad bar.

Stirred until frothy and slimy. Yummmmm!

The Cat’s friend wanted to get a bread knife. After some frantic searching, ended up here.

A brand new retail arm of a long time wholesaler. Think Costco/Sam’s Club-ish. Got her bread knife, almost one-fourth the price than in Hong Kong (and we complain about the high cost of living).

Ended the day at the outlet mall, more shopping. Can’t complain, got two BOGO shoes from Van’s (no, not a sk8er boi) nice and padded, like wearing a sofa. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Silent Saturday

Kind of. The Cat’s sunset dinner cruise last night, Star of Honolulu, seven-course French style dining. Shutting up now.

Chili Bowl, Mouse Style

Didn’t get to the downtown diner again today. Long story. Hmph. Decided to make my own at home. Have rice and eggs, bought a can of chili. Mentioned previously that The Cat was with her friend on a sunset dinner cruise (pictures tomorrow).

Add chili.

And top with scrambled eggs (with rice and chili, the eggs have to be scrambled, it just is, weird yeah?).

A little sliced green onions for color and “vegetables”. :)

Finally.

My “bachelor” dinner. Yum.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Restraint

Are you one of those people that think about lunch around 9:00 am? I am. Today, it was a chili loco moco or a bowl of chili and rice at one of  the downtown “diners”. Plans changed.

Ended up at the Filipino restaurant near Costco with The Cat, and The Cat’s friend who’s visiting from Hong Kong. Okay, can adapt, I can order breakfast (served all day), Longanisa (sausage) with rice and eggs.

I thought we were going to order individual plates but ended up ordering family style. The Cat ordered sizzling tofu.

The friend ordered Pinakbet.

Apparently more vegetables, less meat, thoughts of pork shank, or sizzling pig cheeks, or Lechon Kawali out the door. Sigh. Ordered ung choi and tomato.

Starch was one scoop each  of white, brown, and garlic rice (we couldn’t decide).

Don’t get me wrong, everything was tasty, just not chili or pork (there was a little bit of pork in the Pinakbet).

Oh well, tomorrow is another day, they’re going on a sunset dinner cruise tomorrow, less chance of me (and my lunch) getting sidetracked. Wish me luck. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Squishy” Sandwich

Not really “squishy”, just “rested”, “melded”, something. Let me explain. Picked up a ham and pâté bahn mi on the way home today.

It was “resting” for about 90 minutes by the time I ate it. The bread absorbed some of  the moisture and flavor, the ingredients got acquainted. Mode for a better tasting sandwich, in my opinion.

Happy Sandwich

While I like “fresh” sandwiches, there’s something to be said about letting ingredients time enough to “play” together (think leftovers).

What do ya think?

Enjoy. Eat well.
