The Mouse loves peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Problem was the peanut butter and jam did not adhere to each other and oftentimes jam and peanut butter would ooze out to The Mouse’s clothes or the floor. Ugh!

The Mouse eventually switched to peanut butter only. Mess problem solved, but The Mouse still missed the jam.

Small-kid time, one of the jam and jelly manufacturers came out with peanut butter and jelly combo jar.


Back then, the jar sold at a premium, above my parents’ wallet ability. The jars disappeared from grocery shelves before The Mouse could try.

Not too long ago, The Mouse saw them back on the grocer shelf, had to try one.

The peanut butter and jelly blend better than separately. Still more peanut butter flavor than jelly, but A+ for effort.

On Toast

Will The Mouse buy again? Yes, occasionally.

Hoping for smoother roads, clearer skies, and calmer waters on a local and global scale. See you next year!

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse is taking long naps, eating little. One benefit, he is losing a little weight, a good thing during the holiday season. Hee hee.

Holiday Pastries

The Cat bought several boxes of pastries to give to clients, brought a few home to taste.


Mango and cranberry. Small, not dry, The Mouse would eat again.


Bran and blueberry. Not bad, the scones were better.

Some Kinda Mousse Pastry

Raspberry, pistachio, and chocolate flavored. Good and rich. Probably eat very infrequently.

Hope your holiday season is going well.

Stay safe and healthy.

Norman’s Saimin

On the menu at the locally owned Ruby Tuesday.

Norman’s Saimin

From the menu: Soy base, roasted pork, steamed dumpling, choy sum, then topped with green onions.

From the bartender: one of the owner’s friends said that he would never eat in his restaurant because there was no saimin. Owner put Norman’s Saimin on the menu in his honor. Pretty good story yeah?

The Mouse thinks especially during this time (and hopefully throughout the year), it is important to remember and value family and friends. 🙂

The Cat had her normal half-rack of baby back ribs.

Mango Kiawe Sauce, Dirty Rice, Broccoli

During this holiday season (your choice), The Cat and The Mouse wish you joy, faith, and all the good.

Stay safe and well.
