Friday Eats

Friday. Breakfast for The Mouse. The Cat’s “leftover” oatmeal (The Mouse cooked too much).

Oatmeal

Since The Mouse is not a big fan of oatmeal, he had to appeal it up with a dollop of honey.

Organic Hawaiian Honey with Cinnamon

The honey made the oatmeal more bread pudding-like. Hee hee.

Dinner, almost becoming a Friday tradition.

Lau Lau (or is it Laulau) Plate

From the supermarket down the street. The Mouse took the rice lau lau and lomi salmon, The Cat got the chicken long rice, Okinawan sweet potato, and haupia (under the lomi salmon).

It’s still the eve before New Year’s eve here in SPAM Land, I think we are one of the last time zones. Happy New Year’s Eve to everyone else.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No Hawaiian plate this week.

Coworker got her hands on a Goteborg sausage from Kauai, and shared some with the office. For some reason which The Mouse does not know yet. A Kauai regional food. I don’t think any other island favors Goteborg sausage as much as Kauai. More research is needed.

Goteborg Sausage

Of course The Mouse had to try. For breakfast. Hee hee.

Sausage went well with the planned breakfast.

Vegemite Toast and Dried Plums

With Earl Grey tea. Director brought back a tea bag variety from her trip to Disneyland. Tea. Not Mickey hats. Sigh.

Finally got to try the “Student Special #1” from St. Louis Drive Inn down the hill from campus. Highly recommended by a coworker from the old job.

Student Special #1

Two burgers, French fries, drink. Six bucks.

Chomp View

Burger, a little sauce, bun. No other accoutrements. Super old school. On the plus side, burger wasn’t drowned in sauce. On the minus side, no lettuce/tomato (at least lettuce). Good to try though.

Another coworker brought in something she didn’t want for the two known food enthusiasts in the office.

Dragonfruit!

Coworker is not a vegetable/fruit eater plus not adventurous in the eating arena. The Mouse offered to cut a piece for her. Nope. That’s okay, The Cat and The Mouse benefit. 🙂

Nom!

Since The Mouse didn’t have lau lau and or kalua pork on Friday, picked up a little “cat food” on the way home. 🙂

Hamachi Poke

And a little “mouse treat” too.

Smoked Salmon Poke

The hamachi poke for dinner, the smoked salmon poke to snack on.

The Cat had lunch at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

Eggplant Parmesan

The Cat brought home a little mousie bag, went into the freezer, probably will end up as part of one of The Cat’s bento next week.

Have a good weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Aloha Friday. Picked up a take-out from the neighborhood grocery store.

You’ve seen this before.

A combo for just over ten bucks? Almost unheard of. I guess the grocery store has economies of scale or some other economic factor in play.

Hawaiian Combo Plate

Kalua pork, sweet potato, chicken long rice (under the sweet potato), haupia, lomi salmon, and lau lau. Small drink included. What a deal!

The sweet potato got put away for The Cat’s lunch next week (in the freezer), the chicken long rice went into The Cat’s dinner bowl (see picture below), the haupia is The Cat’s breakfast today, The Mouse scarfed the kalua pork, lau lau, and lomi salmon for dinner. 🙂

The Cat is not that crazy about Aloha Friday food as much as The Mouse. She got a “clean the refrig” bowl.

The Cat’s Bowl

Using the chicken long rice as a “base”, added dried seaweed (reconstituted), Korean rice cake, cucumber, and a drop or two of toasted sesame seed oil.

Everybody’s happy.

Heading out to yum cha today. The Cat is taking her mother, The Mouse is tagging along as driver.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouseʻs hand is still “slow and clumsy”. Spent the day snoozing.

Last night, a visit to the neighborhood Ruby Tuesday, special meal deal still in effect until the end of the month.

Herb-crusted Fish

The Catʻs new favorite dish (along with the ribs).

Flat Iron Steak Appetizer – Teriyaki Flavor

Part of the meal deal. Pretty awesome for a chain restaurant. I think this could become a repeat order on The Cat and The Mouseʻs list. 🙂

The chain has revamped its salad bar. A new favorite dressing (both The Catʻs and The Mouseʻs).

Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

Not too vinegary, not too oily, just right.

Enjoy. Eat well.
