Slurpy Saturday

Both The Cat and The Mouse went into their respective work yesterday (The Cat much longer than The Mouse). Since The Mouse was in the neighborhood … (so far this new location is keeping The Mouse intrigued). Stopped in at Sweet Home Glad for lunch.

Lunch plates $6.75 includes rice and edamame. Yesterday, to make up for the hot dog binge the other day, went more veggie.

Not bad, not gourmet, more Hong Kong style “street” eats.

Since I was there, also tried the chicken dumpling soup noodle, $3.25.

Big bowl, maybe full-sized? Very decent.

Not really comparable, but the new-ish ramen shops have ramen combos (ramen with small bowl of rice with a cha siu topping) more expensive. Here, both dishes just under 10 bucks! Winner!

This might be my new go-to place on the weekends for the next couple of months (work schedule).

I was contemplating ordering an herbal tea.

but the drink maker was off yesterday, maybe at Chinatown preparing for next week (Chinese New Year). Oh well, next time.

The Cat had her “regular” roast duck funn noodle soup from Asian Mix.

Gas

Cheap eats. Gas station. Special.

Hot Dog, Corndog

Hot Dog, Corn Dog

Two hot dogs for two bucks, two corn dogs for two bucks. Lunch, four bucks and tax. Woo hoo!

Condiment packages

Condiment packages

Came with requisite condiment packages.

The TMI section. Ever since The Mouse was small-kid, hot dogs caused him to get gas. Digestion process still holds true. Hee hee.

To counterbalance lunch, dinner was simple.

Parboiled Carrot and Celery

Parboiled Carrot and Celery

Seasoned with black salt and pepper. The celery, possibly the black salt, and maybe even the carrot provided more fuel for gas production. Hee hee. The Cat threatened to use a cork. Wait wha?!

Enjoy. Eat well.

I know. Sigh. Sorry.

Bought a bunch of radish.

Radish

Radish

Tried the radish, butter (margarine), and sea salt, sorry, just not my cup of tea.

Looked online for inspiration. Found this recipe: http://www.marthastewart.com/319260/corn-and-radish-salad.

Didn’t have fresh corn (canned), chile, nor lime. But … try anyway.

Next night, added celery.

Lemon and Tuna

No, not like yesterday’s post. Actually lemon and tuna go well together, just not like that today.

Day started out simply.

Breakfast

Breakfast

Trying to eat more fiber. Hee hee.

Lunch was a fiber/protein bar, eating during the commute between jobs (no picture, nothing to see, move along, “eat to live”).

After eating light all day, needed something more for dinner (I know, supposed to eat light for dinner … but).

Tuna Salad on Whole Wheat Croissant

Tuna Salad on Whole Wheat Croissant

From La Palme D’Or (Japanese/French bakery) at the mall.

The bakery used to make this with regular croissants, I like the whole wheat version better. Paws up.

Cinnamon Roll

From Saint Germain Bakery (another European/Japanese bakery) at the mall.

For The Cat (who loves Key Lime Pie) …

Individual Lemon Tart

Also from La Palme D’Or.

The Mouse took a small nibble. Very lemon-y. Paw up.
