“Odds and Ends”

Just “cleaning out” the pics on the phone. 🙂

Orange Dots

The Mouse’s haul from the grocery store, all orange dotted, end of day reductions. Fried chicken and SPAM bento, donut, fried rice and egg bento, apple turnovers. Mmm.

Fruit

Proof The Mouse tries to eat balanced. Grapes, orange, banana. 🙂

Part II of yesterday’s pork and prune dish. shout out to Mr. S (small-kid time) for the inspiration. The Mouse added an egg in The Cat’s leftover.

Just add and Egg

Steamed. The Cat liked.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

The last Costco run, The Cat bought a package of prunes. The package sat in the pantry. The Mouse has been nibbling, but not a favorite.

The Mouse looked for a recipe that would incorporate pork and prunes. Found one.

The Mouse took a piece of pork rib, five or six prunes, enough water to braise. Added ginger and coconut vinegar (whatever was in the pantry). One wood-ear fungus, rehydrated, boiled, sliced into strips.

Before serving, added head cabbage. A German chef once told The Mouse that pork, cabbage and vinegar works well.

Vinegar Braised Pork and Prunes with Cabbage

Pic taken through steam. The Cat liked. Chinese/German-inspired (vinegar braised pig feet: thanks Yummy Lummy for the reminder: https://yummylummy.com/2022/05/05/pig-trotters-vinegar-and-ginger/ and German pork and red cabbage).

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Soup and Salad

The Mouse’s lunch.

Soup

Tomato bisque.

Salad

Salmon.

🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse (and The Cat)

Take-Out

The Mouse had a meeting in town. Picked up food take-out.

Omelet Sandwich

One of The Cat’s favorite. Two meals.

Loco Moco

Two restaurants in the same strip mall. This loco moco was a little meh. The beef patties were pre-made. The Mouse was hoping for hand-formed. Oh well.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Fruit Plate/Bowls

Prepped fruit over the weekend, for convenience. 🙂

Side Fruit Bowl

Fruit Plate

Both from breakfast at the steakhouse in “tourist-land”.

Tropical Fruit

From the neighborhood grocery store. papaya, mango, and pineapple. For The Cat.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Just Add Water?

The Mouse, small-kid time, used to see ads in comics about capsules that when thrown in water would expand into animals, fish, etc. Do those trinkets still exist?

Anyway, The Mouse had a flashback while prepping wood-ear fungus. hee hee.

Before

The quarter is for size reference.

After

Soaked in boiling water. Expanded to at least twice its dried size. “Release the Kraken”? Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Pastry Run

Unplanned. Kinda. Well, The Cat had it in the back of her mind to visit (location is across the mountain), but …

Yesterday, The Cat and The Mouse had an early start, kinda in the area.

Fendu Boulangerie.

Box of Pastries

Bran muffin, scones (cranberry, mango), chocolate croissant, pear danish, apple turnover.

Breakfast for a couple of days. 🙂

Also in the same shopping area the bakery, Brug, that sells bread ends. Yay for The Mouse.

Bread Ends

This time the ends were from “regular” bread loaves, not toasting bread. Happy mouse.

Also at Brug, a puff pastry with a whole egg on top (for The Cat’s dinner).

Puff Pastry with Whole Egg

A productive morning. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Pork Rib Soup

No pork foot at the grocery store. The Mouse bought the smallest package of pork ribs.

Pork Ribs

The Mouse separated the ribs and made a portion of soup. Rib, ginger, vinegar, wakame, Napa cabbage, sea salt.

Soup

The Cat slurped. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

The Mouse has not bought frozen soybeans for years, for various reasons. Saw at the grocery store the other day.

Package

Country of origin is Thailand, much better. Plus package was on sale.

The Mouse made a soybean, wakame, frozen spinach soup for lunch.

Vegetable Soup

The Mouse used a little too much shoyu in the base, hence the darkened color. Not good for picture, tasty though. 🙂

The Cat brought home her leftover from lunch for The Mouse.

Pasta with Meat Sauce

The Cat is acquiring the taste for meat sauce, would not have eaten before. Side note, she is trying a little spicer foods too.

Along with the pasta, The Cat ordered two side order meatballs to complete The Mouse’s meal. 🙂

Meatballs

The Mouse ate well. Mmm.

The Mouse

Puzzle Eats

Food that reminded The Mouse of puzzles.

Salmon Tic-Tac-Toe

The Mouse had in mind something else for lunch but the meeting ended too early and time was too early for the tea house to open. The Mouse was thinking about the Taiwan pork floss omelet sandwich but ended up with the tic-tac-toe instead. A good substitute. 🙂

The other day, The Cat had an event that needed her office building’s security/maintenance personnel assistance. To thank them she picked up pastries for snacks. She also picked up for her office minions.

Pastries

The Cat brought home the double chocolate coffee cake (bottom right) for The Mouse. Is it only The Mouse or does the arrangement kinda look like a Tetris puzzle piece? Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Fish Fry

Grocery store sold out of the bento The Mouse was looking for, visited two in the neighborhood. “Settled” for a container of fried butterfish.

Fried Butterfish

The Mouse thinks pieces are “leftover” after the filets are used for bento. The Mouse tried a piece, super crispy, almost like a chip. Not bad.

“Assembled” The Cat’s bento, rice, roasted yam, scrambled egg, fried butterfish, and boiled Napa cabbage. The Cat will report feedback.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Beet Powder

The Mouse bought a container of beet powder from a “dress for less” store. Go figure. Hee hee.

Container

Powder

Drink

Texture was a little powdery, not too offensive. Taste, a little earthy, little sweet. Funny, taste kinda reminded The Mouse of artificial strawberry powder for milk, except not so sweet.

Try try. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Leftovers

The Cat and The Mouse don’t mind leftovers. Yesterday eats.

Shoyu Pork, Toasting Bread Ends

The Mouse likes the bread ends the bakery cuts off and sells separately (cheap eats). Never know what’s in the package, could be whole wheat, white, etc. In the last purchase, it was toasting bread ends. Different from plain white bread, texture is finer. The Mouse wished he had French baguettes on hand, but the toasting bread was close enough.

The Mouse added dried green vegetable and cauliflower in the reheat. The shoyu pork sauce was good for dipping

Soup

Leftover oxtail soup. The Mouse added wakame, canned bamboo shoot, frozen mixed vegetables, instant ramen, and white stemmed cabbage in the reheat. 🙂

At first, The Cat wanted to visit a bakery in town, and look for good ma-po tofu. But yesterday being Mother’s Day, there may be crowd issues. In the end, The Cat and The Mouse stayed in the neighborhood and ate comfort food.

Oxtail Soup

Instead of noodles, The Cat requested rice, more traditional. A better choice.

Grilled Chicken Pho

Thai Tea

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Just Eat

Kinda a catch-all post.

The Mouse’s leftover breakfast.

Steamed Rice, Furikake, Smoked Salmon, Poke, Pickled Grapes

The Mouse didn’t have ume (hence the pickled grapes) nor capers. Other than that, mmm. 🙂

Fruit

Oranges and grapes, to balance the breakfast.

Lao-Thai Plate

The Cat had lunch with a business associate, he ordered the plate above, mild. Served too spicy, had to be sent back.

The Cat had better luck.

Caramelized Pork Bell

Braised pork belly with hard-boiled eggs, star anise, herbs and spices. The Mouse thinks Lao-Thai version of shoyu pork. Leftover for The Cat’s bento this week.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

The Mouse had a fish day.

Breakfast.

Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Fruit

Lunch.

Fish Bento

With vegetable gyoza. Not the best (pre-packed food inherently has quality issues), but cheap enough. Hee hee.

Dinner.

Poke

The Mouse had a good day. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

The Cat took a family friend to lunch to catch-up. On line menu pictures indicated that Hainan Chicken Rice was a lunch special. Unfortunately, since the picture was posted, there was a change in ownership.

The Cat had to order ala carte.

Fried Pork Chop

Green Beans with Minced Pork

Fried Rice

The Cat said everything was ok, just ok. The Mouse fully understands, when your mind is set on a dish and circumstances beyond your control intercede, the stomach is not satisfied. The search for Hainan chicken rice continues.

Be well and safe.

The Mouse

Everything But …

The Mouse was in a “throw everything in and hope for the best” mood.

The Mouse’s lunch.

Lunch

Shell macaroni, cannellini beans, wood-ear fungus, wakame, tin of sardines, sea salt, black pepper, and paprika. Mmm.

The Cat’s dinner.

“Soup”

Ginger, red date, wood-ear fungus, wakame, fried chicken skin, asparagus, mustard greens, soba noodles, shell macaroni. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Cheap Eats

One of The Mouse’s go-to places not-so-small-kid time (think teen years) was Rainbow Drive-In. Their boneless chicken with gravy was the bomb!

Restaurant has franchised, a location on the way to or back from Costco makes access a little easier. Hee hee.

Restaurant listed a student special #2, The Mouse inquired if he could order, the server didn’t say no.

The Mouse and The Cat shared.

Chili and Rice Bowl

Chunky ground beef. Mmm. A close second to Zippy’s vegetarian chili. Same but different. Apples and oranges. Hee hee.

Fries

Pretty large portion. The Cat and The Mouse shared.

Slush Float

Strawberry slush with soft-serve ice cream. First time try for The Cat. Slush float used to be one of The Mouse’s favorites. But then, he developed lactose intolerance. Sigh.

At first, The Cat thought the slush float would be too sweet without trying. Result is The Cat liked. Paws up.

All three as a combo, less than eight bucks. Cheap eats!

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

More Benedict, same as last Sunday.

Vegetable Benedict

Smoked Salmon Benedict

Sides of Fruit

Restaurant will probably be too busy next week. Maybe something different.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Seriously. The Brussels sprouts and the beet greens needed to be tended to.

Roasted the Brussels sprouts.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Most of the sprouts goes to The Cat’s bento this week, froze a few for her dinner, and The Mouse ate approximately half a portion (the residual).

The Mouse made a quick soup with wakame, beet greens, and residual frozen cauliflower.

Soup

For lunch.

No waste. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Kinda. Last month’s special at Ruby Tuesday, all pasta dishes discounted. The Cat and The Mouse made it in on the last day.

Grilled Chicken and Brocolli Pasta

All of the pasta selections contained dairy, The Mouse went with an alternative.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Baked Potato

A very good alternative to a burger (and a dollar or so cheaper). Baked potato substituted for fries (and amout 200 calories less). Less less, win win. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Vegetable Stir-Fry

Unplanned. Original plan was Ruby Tuesday, but the kitchen was short-handed and backed up. Next door to Big City Diner.

Vegetable Stir-Fry, White Rice

Both The Cat and The Mouse order. There is a shoyu-ginger “glaze” but The Mouse squirted a little yellow mustard and ketchup, and a sprinkle of black pepper. Mmm 🙂

Because dinner was healthy, The Mouse balanced with an order of apple pie.

Apple Pie, Whipped Cream on the Side

The Mouse thinks this is the best apple pie. Two puff pastry squares sandwiching a generous scoop of apple pie filing with raisins. Mmm again. 🙂 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Schedule Snafu

The Cat didn’t bring lunch from home. A scheduling snafu at the office. The downstairs cafe.

Sandwich, Salad, Soup

The Mouse made “fast” congee, comfort food for The Cat’s stomach.

“Fast” Congee

Leftover rice, lotus seed, dried fava beans, roasted Brussels sprouts, canned bamboo shoot, wood-ear fungus, salt, and toasted sesame oil to finish. Mmm.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Diner Eats

The Cat bought gift cards at Costco at a discount, Big City Diner. 🙂

The Cat and The Mouse used one of the cards this past weekend.

Pan-Seared Salmon

Rice and green beans.

Mamasan’s Homemade Meatloaf

On a bed of spinach with rice and green beans.

Can you guess which dish The Cat and The Mouse ordered? Hee hee! 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Colors.

Brussels Sprouts
Roasted Beets

Both dressed with olive oil and sea salt.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Chicken Foot Soup

The Mouse bought The Cat a bento from the grocery store last week. Timing was off. Bento went into the freezer.

Tic-Tac-Toe Bento

Maki sushi, sesame mochi balls, pickled cucumber, simmered burdock root, potato croquette, fried gyoza, steamed rice with furikake, inari sushi, and butterfish.

Yesterday, The Mouse thawed out the bento, packed the rice and butterfish into her bento today (she can microwave it). The Mouse lightly steamed the maki sushi and inari sushi and lightly toasted the potato croquette and sesame mochi ball for lunch. The gyoza, burdock, and cucumbers went into The Cat’s chicken foot (one foot) soup.

The Cat comes home for dinner since tax season is taking a break. “Light soup” is the special of the day.

One chicken foot, wood-ear fungus, fresh ginger, and coconut vinegar to simmer. Soba noodles and white stem cabbage just before service, The cucumber, burdock root, and gyoza to finish.

Chicken Foot Soup

Oh yeah, a splash of whiskey to get the soup happy. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Post-Costco Eats

Okinawan restaurant, comfort food.

Japanese Eggplant with Shoyu Pork
Sliced Pork with Bitter Melon and Tofu

The restaurant makes a coffee gelatin, one of The Mouse’s favorites. And it is non-dairy, whoo! Whipped cream can be added on request.

Coffee Gelatin

Just the right amount of sweet mixed with coffee. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Benedicts

Pre-Costco run, The Cat’s choice. Try try.

Smoked Salmon Benedict

The Cat’s. Although The Mouse had to finish the leftover. Mmm.

Vegetable Benedict

The Mouse’s. Tomato and spinach. More mmm.

The deal-maker was the accompanying fruit. The Mouse thought it might be a few pieces, slice of pineapple (we were in Waikiki after all), one orange wedge or slice, one or two berries. Turned out, The Cat and The Mouse got a bowl.

Fruit Bowl

Strawberries, green grapes, red grapes, blackberries, blueberries, orange, and mint.

The price of the benedicts were reasonable themselves but the included fruit bowl made the breakfast kinda a bargain. Worth a return visit. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Full Day

The Cat’s first no-work Saturday in a long time. She wants to play and do a Costco run.

No actual post today, just mouse droppings. Hee hee.

See you tomorrow. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Macarons

From one of The Cat’s clients. The Cat brought home.

Box of Macarons

There was no flavor guide enclosed. The Mouse guesses red velvet, mocha, black sesame, salted caramel, strawberry, and blueberry.

Tasty.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Unplanned Layering

The Mouse didn’t know what he wanted to eat for lunch. Started with a bowl of boiled vegetables

Carrot, White Stem Cabbage

Dressed with vegetable oil, sea salt, and black pepper. The Mouse wanted a little more (he thought he might get hungry after).

The Mouse added half of a roasted sweet potato (leftover from making The Cat’s bento).

Phase II

The Mouse thought still not quite there, didn’t want to add sardines or Vienna sausage or SPAM. Light bulb! Peanut butter!

Okay, Complete!

Mmm. A perfect bowl of food for that moment. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

The Mouse, scrounging through the pantry, refridge, and freezer. 🙂

Lunch

Instant ramen (no soup packet), fresh carrot, frozen cauliflower, wakame, sea salt, black pepper, Sichuan pepper, and turmeric. Oh, and a tin of sardines. The Mouse thinks without the sardines, the bowl would have looked less “ugly”. Hee hee. Not only filled The Mouse up, it was tasty too. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Just Home Eats

Return to normal eats.

Oatmeal with Raisins
Carrot and White Stem Cabbage

Boiled, dressed with olive oil and sea salt.

Peanut Butter and Jelly on Toast

That’s it for now.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Easter Brunch

Greenish Bunny

The Mouse was kinda weirded out. To The Mouse the bunny looked a little zombie-ish, what do you think? Hee hee.

First Plate

Plumeria House Signature Misoyaki Butterfish, Chicken Marsala with Sauteed Mushrooms (shiitake and morel mushrooms), Atlantic Salmon, Fennel and Orange, Ahi Sashimi, Pickled Ginger, Spring Leg of Lamb (end piece). Mmm x 5. Hee hee.

Plate #2

Poached Shrimp, Mixed Spring Greens topped with Smoked Salmon, more Salmon, fennel, and orange, and more Misoyaki Butterfish. More Mmm!

Dessert Plate

Lilikoi Meringue Tart (best on the plate), Chocolate Mousse Cake (second best), Carrot Pineapple Cake (third), Hot Cross Bun (really dry), Coconut Macaroon (honorable mention), Ginger Snap.

Musical Styling

Brunch music. Other than not too many people were paying attention, it is background music after all, the gig seemed idyllic (fresh air, cool breeze, sunshine). The Mouse left him a small tip just to let him know he was appreciated.

Be well and safe.

The Mouse

Spinach Soup

Weather, a little cooler than usual. The Mouse wanted vegetable soup.

Frozen spinach, peas and carrots, oatmeal (for body, in place of cream), instant miso soup. No-recipe, thrown together.

Spinach Soup

Quick and easy peasy. Thick-cut buttered toast on the side. Mmm.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

No-Recipe Eats

The Mouse, throwing stuff together, one bowl eats.

Oatmeal and Fava Beans

Leftover rehydrated fava beans, oatmeal, wakame seaweed. The Mouse wanted savory breakfast but also wanted oatmeal. Actually not bad. Not everyday, but once in a while. While eating, The Mouse was thinking about the movie Oliver. Hee hee.

Lunch.

Turmeric Ramen with Cauliflower and Fishcake

The Mouse did not use the included soup packet, sea salt (little bit), and turmeric instead. Not yellow snow. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Chazuke Inspired

For The Mouse’s dinner.

Base of rice with nori, leftover salmon and saba.

Botton of the Bowl

The Mouse then made a broth/soup of lotus seed, dried fava bean, wood-ear fungus, carrot. Simmer for a few hours, cool. Pour over rice and fish. One bowl eats.

Pour over Rice

Hopefully, it is comfort food.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Treat from Client

A few clients of The Cat will occasionally bring to The Cat’s office pastries. The Cat brought home a couple pieces.

Red Bean Bun

Filled with azuki beans. Mmm.

Bear

The Mouse is not sure what this is. Will update later.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

The Cat’s Food

Assembled by The Mouse.

Soup

Leftover oxtail soup from the weekend, The Mouse added carrot and wood-ear fungus. Add noodles when microwave, office dinner. 🙂

Bento

Messy but tasty. Mostly leftovers, rice, sweet potato, oxtail meat, Napa cabbage, fried egg (yolk broke, sigh).

Not much happened with The Mouse, SPAM sandwich (posted before), miso vegetable soup (posted before).

The Mouse heading out for an errand for The Cat, Maybe an interesting lunch, maybe.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Timing is Everything

Grocery store end of day mark-down, prepared foods and bakery goods. The Mouse picked up after Sunday dinner (oxtail soup, chicken katsu).

Cinnamon Donut
Hot Dog Croissant (Ignore the Banana)
Pastele Stew

Everything, four dollars and change. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner covered. 🙂

Be well and safe.

The Mouse

Comfort Soup

Oxtail soup to start The Cat’s week. Go-to Japanese/Pho Restaurant in the neighborhood.

Oxtail Soup

The Mouse was going to order a steamed fish filet with ginger, kitchen was out. Sigh. Alternative was chicken katsu.

Chicken Katsu

There are now two places in the neighborhood that The Mouse can go for chicken katsu, which could be both good and bad. Good is that food is good, bad because The Mouse should be eating healthier. Moderation.

The Mouse also ordered a plate of spring rolls.

Spring Rolls

The vegetables and noodles give the impression of being “healthier”. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

Gadget

The Mouse finally got one. SPAM slicer.

Not Torture Device

The Mouse never could slice SPAM uniformly. Was a little skeptical, the gadget was not as easy as expected, the wires used to slice are not too sharp, but got the job done.

Sliced SPAM

Perfect timing. The Mouse picked up a package of sliced bread from the grocery store. Not toast thick, sandwich thin.

Fried the SPAM, sprinkled with a tiny bit of sugar and ground Szechuan pepper (the numbing spice). Wood ear fungus for vegetable.

SPAM Toast Sandwich

The Mouse’s “happy meal”. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Home Eats

The Mouse at home. The Cat at work. The Mouse will eat funny. Not funny haha, funny, hmm.

The Mouse has been eating oatmeal for breakfast for a couple of weeks. Yesterday, changed up just a bit. Instead of adding stevia, cinnamon, and raisins, The Mouse added seashell pasta, mixed vegetables, salt, pepper, and turmeric. The Mouse felt savory.

Savory Oatmeal/Pasta

Dinner was “healthy”.

Wood-ear fungus “salad”, salt and vinegar dressing.

Wood-Ear Fungus

Funny, The Mouse doesn’t like salt and vinegar seasoned fried chicken (popular in SPAM Land) but likes the flavoring with the fungus.

The Mouse was in the mood for miso soup.

Miso Soup

Instant miso soup, white stem cabbage remnants. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Seaweed Paste

From yesterday’s post.

99 Cents
Inside

Not very photogenic.

The Mouse steamed leftover rice. A dab of Vegemite and a dab of seaweed paste.

Umami

The seaweed paste has a teriyaki taste, the Vegemite, salty slightly bitter taste. To The Mouse, the tastes complimented each other. Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Bargains

Mark-down at the grocery store.

Seaweed Paste

The Mouse doesn’t know what the original price was (guess less than $5.00) marked down to $0.99. The Mouse compares it to Vegemite. Lots of umami. Inside pics later.

Late visit to farmers market at the mall.

One vendor, trying to not take home leftovers, offered The Mouse a two-fer.

Lemongrass Fried Chicken Wings

Normally $7.00.

Fried Stuffed Chicken Wings

Normally $8.00

Two containers $10.00. One-third off. Not too bad. 🙂

The chicken wings could be part of three, maybe four meals. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Bowl of Noodles

Emergency repairs affecting the driveway. The service truck blocking The Mouse’s car, didn’t want to ask the plumbers to move. The Mouse rummaged.

Noodle Bowl

Instant noodles, no soup packet, turmeric, salt, wakame, cauliflower, fishcake. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Fish Lunches

Dunno if it is the season but The Mouse has been eating more fish (not canned sardines or tuna) lately.

Fish Filet with Choi Summ

One of the lunch specials from the neighborhood chop suey. Price slightly reduced with rice included. The Mouse thought the fish would be steamed, but turned out fried. Still tasty, although The Mouse would probably not order too often.

Salmon Bento

Although The Mouse shared a portion with The Cat, The Mouse ate the majority.

Butterfish Bento

The Cat’s lunch.

All of the meals were kinda cheap eats, especially in light of the recent rise in turmoil.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Dunno why, many restaurants were at capacity for dinner last night. The Cat was hangry with an a. Ended up at curry/ramen shop at the mall instead of The Cat and The Mouse’s normal eating spots. Combo meals.

Ramen and Won Ton Ramen

Not bad, decently edible. The won ton even contained shrimp. While not gourmet, definitely satisfying.

Gyoza

Several levels above average. The Mouse wouldn’t mind going back for more. Mmm.

Vegetable Croquette Curry and “Mapo Tofu”

The vegetable croquette was more like a asian hash brown, The Mouse didn’t mind. The mapo tofu was not mapo tofu sauce but curry sauce. The Cat didn’t like. The Mouse will eat for breakfast after posting this.

In conclusion, the ramen, plus, the gyoza, plus plus, the curry, one neutral, one kinda fail. Two or two and a half out of three (Meatloaf power singing in the background, RIP).

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

Bread!

After doctor appointment. “Japanese” bakery, conveniently next to grocery store.

Loaf

Bakery will slice various thicknesses based on customer request. The Mouse requested 2mm (first time experience for The Mouse), a little thick, that’s okay, good toasting width. Next time, The Mouse thinks 1.5mm for general use.

Onion Pastry

A little spicy. Would have been great with a side burger patty. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse
