From Sunday, The Cat’s leftover paella, only rice leftover.

The Mouse steamed the bowl, added an egg, steamed a little more.

A Bread (End) Tale

The time The Mouse ate at the last pie/coffee shop on the other side of the island, The Mouse sat at the counter. They serve a lot of toast, commercial-sized loaves. The Mouse watched the servers toss the loaf ends away.

Server explained customers didn’t want bread end toast. The Mouse asked if he could take some. Server accommodated with a few. 🙂

Bread Ends

While The Mouse understands the restaurant policy, he wished he lived closer, he wouldn’t mind making a couple of trips a week to collect bread ends.

The bread is tasty with good texture too. Sigh.

Changing subject, a couple of The Cat’s clients like to drop off food stuff during tax season.

Avocados, Honey

Not Fried

Sunday dinner, Saito & Pho, neighborhood go-to for comfort food.

The Cat had her regular oxtail soup, The Mouse ordered steamed basa with ginger and onion.


White onions instead of green onions, very tasty. Leftover went into The Cat’s bento.

Be safe, eat good.

One of The Mouse’s former bosses (who becomes a client), husband’s birthday. Sorry, confusing. Birthday brunch. Eating House 1840 by Roy Yamaguchi.

The Cat’s Order

Plantation style paella rice stew. Portuguese sausage, chorizo, shrimp, and clams. Tasty.

The Mouse’s Order

Sampler plate: chicken spring roll (ok), Mongolian ribs (tender, fall off the bone, slightly spicy, mmm), tempura spicy ahi sushi roll (ok). Winner was the ribs. The Mouse still trying to cut back, not eliminate extra starch.

For “starch”, The Mouse also ordered.

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

Lemon mint aioli, lup cheong sausage, pepitas. The Mouse shared with The Cat and “birthday boy”. Another winner dish.

Be safe, eat good.
