The Mouse tries tamale for the first time.

Tamale Plate

Nom! The Mouse likes wrapped food, lau lau, pastele, jung, etc. Tamale fits right in. Yay!

At the same time, The Cat tries horchata for the first time.


Kinda like Mexican soy milk? Without the bean taste, The Cat likes.

Now for the rest of the week.

Smoked Pork Cheek

One of the butchers at the warehouse caught a wild boar, a very invasive species here in SPAM Land. In his spare time he smokes meat. The Mouse was lucky to taste the cheek portion, very yum.

The Mouse finally picked up pork bones, order was last week but the warehouse couldn’t find the package, ugh. Head butcher reordered and repackaged. There was supposed to be tails in the mix. Very little tail portions, mostly ribs and backs. Lotsa soup coming. The Mouse will try and salvage tail portions for a cooking experiment.

9 Pounds of Bones

Finally, The Cat picked up a package of mini naan from Costco.

Mini Naan

The Mouse used whatever available and made a ham, apple and shiso mini naan “soft taco” sandwich.

The Mouse forgot a little smidge of mustard, next time.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Just the Basics

Too hot to do anything, not really hot, sticky. Doesn’t help the sales staff is prepping for an upcoming expo, brought in extra portable ovens for testing, air conditioning can’t handle the extra heat. Ugh!

On the plus side, we get to sample the products they will be featuring. The Mouse tried mushroom lasagna and vegetable lasagna, no pictures, too messy. The consensus was the mushroom was much better. Hope they don’t demo the vegetable one, Ick.

“Above us only sky”

The Mouse trying to escape the heat. Outside was hot and sticky too. At least there was a view.

PB & J

Ancient grains toast, had to use the toaster oven again, sigh, peanut butter, chunky this time, mixed fruit jam, cherry, strawberry, raspberry, and redcurrant. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

New place opened up in the neighborhood. Totally forgot the name. According to the owner, everything scratch made. The Mouse was going to try, but pricey, and waiting time is 15 – 20 minutes. Maybe later, after The Mouse wins the lottery or something. Hee hee. Picked up a few bread slices to try.


Picked up a slice of taro banana, mango, and sweet potato poi breads. Breakfast for The Mouse and The Cat today.

The Mouse also picked a bahn mi sandwich from next door, much cheaper.

Ham and Pate Bahn Mi Sandwich

More bread. Hee hee.

The fruit/veggie component of The Mouse’s meal was an Asian pear (one of The Mouse’s favorite fruit).

Asian Pear

The Mouse’s self imposed kitchen ban is lifted, limited use for now.

Enjoy. Eat well.
