Got to the grocery store a little too late for the complete Friday combo.

The Black Box

You’ve seen it before.

Friday Combp – Abbreviated

Chicken long rice – out, lomi salmon – out, sigh. At least the major components were available, lau lau and kalua pork.

The rice and sweet potato will go into The Cat’s bento next week. One less starch to deal with, maybe the haupia too.

Had a slight detour yesterday making The Mouse miss the complete combo. Did get two tea packets (from a co-worker) because of the detour though, long story.

Tea Packets

From Volcano Winery. Because their output is so small, each packet price is pretty outrageous. Glad I didn’t buy it, But what’s it about looking gift horses in their mouths?

Anywho, enjoy the weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yeah, I know, time lag …

Across the street from the farmers market location.


Hot pot.

The Cat ordered the lunch special.

Wagyu Beef and Ground Chicken

With lots of vegetables.

The Mouse, not that much into hot pots, ordered sides and a bowl of rice.

Spicy Tuna with Crispy Seaweed


Mushroom Medley

Both were very good. One sock off.

The Cat’s plate even had a piece of salmon.

The Cat’s Bowl

And dessert.

Green Tea Shave Ice

Lots of shave ice. 🙂

The Cat liked it enough to add to the list of “can return” places to eat. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

This week’s soup.

Chicken Feet


Mystery Dried Vegetable

The Mouse’s typical recipe for this sorta thing. Everything into the pot (feet, vegetable, water, vinegar, liquor) and pray. Hee hee.

Turned out okay (The Mouse’s assessment).

Chicken Feet Soup with Dried Vegetable

Gelled up fine. Taste was okay, The Cat liked, herb-y (or is it herbie, hee hee).

Weekend is almost here. Can’t come soon enough.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Breadfruit “Hummus”

Another farmers market try.


Four flavors: regular, turmeric, dried tomato, and sweet potato. The Cat choose turmeric.

Turmeric Breadfruit Hummus

Whole wheat triscuits.


The try.

Triscuit and Breadfruit Hummus

Texture is smoother than chickpea hummus (not as “gritty”/”sandy”). The Mouse thinks the turmeric kinda overpowered the breadfruit taste. Still good. Next time try the dried tomato flavor.

Enjoy. Eat well.
