The Mouse went with something more “Sunday traditional”.

That funny time between Christmas and the new year. The Mouse “volunteered” to go into work yesterday. Ugh!

A little treat for himself for that “offer”.

Inari, Shiso Onigiri, Hot Dot, Tofu Patty, Corned Beef Hash Patty (Mostly Potato, in a good way)

To top off the day, The Cat brought home leftover dessert.

Mixed Berry Pie

Super ono!

Overall, The Mouse had a good day food-wise. Weekend-wise? At least yesterday? Not that great. But, got some work done with less interruptions.

Any plans for new year eve? The Cat and The Mouse are still trying to decide.

Enjoy. Eat well.
