Early morning, rushed off to get blood test, no food, “fasting” requirement. Picked up on the way home.

Fried Rice Breakfast

The Mouse’s, from the neighborhood grocery store. Fried rice, scrambled eggs, char siu (with an “r”). No kogi bits, but still good. Nom!

Picked up for The Cat.

French Toast


The Mouse still full from breakfast (it was larger than The Mouse is used to). Just a little “snack”.

“Acai” Bowl

Instead of all acai sorbet, The Mouse got one scoop of acai sorbet, one scoop of strawberry/guava sorbet, and one scoop o Ka‘u orange sorbet. Mmm!

Although The Mouse thinks leaving off the honey next time, too sticky, felt like a glue mouse trap. Hee hee!

Dinner was late, The Mouse on his own. The Cat stuck at her office. After a short nap, The Mouse headed over to the neighborhood chop suey.

Wor Mein

Noodles with vegetables (think deluxe saimin). The Mouse ordered wor won ton mein (noodles, won ton, vegetables). Kitchen forgot to add the won ton. Got to the bottom of the bowl, no won ton. Humph!

I guess in retrospect, the won ton may have been a little heavy for late eating, but stil … Sigh!

Kitty karry-out (Mr. Caswell‘s inventive wordplay, not The Mouse’s). was steamed buns and spicy eggplant. Too messy for picture.

So, an almost perfect (but still okay) day for The Mouse.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Breaking our Sunday semi-tradition. Tried Big City Diner after Sunday farmers market (right next door to Ruby Tuesday). Little too early for lunch, breakfast instead.

The Cat’s Salmon and Spinach Benedict

Benedict absolutely decent. Nice price too.

The Mouse’s Pancake Sandwich

Two pancakes, bacon, two eggs (easy over).

Some Assembly Required

So, in true SPAM Land fashion, where we like our salty-sweet combination, The Mouse topped his “sandwich” (yes, The Mouse did make a pancake sandwich), with syrup and a few drops of shoyu. First time for The Mouse. One of those “a-ha!” moments. Hee hee.

Big City Diner, a new semi-regular on the “list”. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lately, for the last month or so, breakfast has been eating kinda “standing up”. A packaged breakfast bar, some fruit, candied ginger, and an energy drink. Dentist doesn’t want me drinking coffee or tea, enamel stains, energy drink is the alternative.

Yesterday, had an early doctor appointment. No time for “breakfast”. Picked up after doctor on the way to work.

Brown Rice, Corned Beef Hash, Scrambled Eggs

Yum! Corned beef hash could have spent a little more time on the flat top (crispy, “burnt”), otherwise no complaints.

The Mouse also got to sample a sous vide prepared test steak.

Sous Vide Steak

So, a little explanation. The Mouse has left employment of the university and now works for a small business that runs a beach concession food stand, a catering, event planning service, and a banquet consulting.

When the owners are trying out new menu items, the back office is “drafted” as “guinea pigs” voluntarily of course, which The Mouse does not mind at all. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse didn’t know MickyD’s serves breakfast items all day. Sweet!

Picked up a sausage breakfast burrito on the way home.

Sausage Breakfast Burrito

A favorite of The Mouse’s for a long time, except the packaged salsa is a little “sucky”.

No matter, The Mouse still had the tomato relish in the refridge.

Tomato Relish

And, in the back of the refridge …

Preserved Prune and Dried Apricots with Preserved Lemon

Not Mouse made but homemade. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Browsing through the internet. Idea for breakfast, salsa on eggs. No salsa in the pantry.

Acceptable Substitute

At least to The Mouse. Hee hee. Eggs and fried rice from the snack bar.

Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes and Okra

Okra was a bit hard and stringy, tossed. Tomato added a “ketchup-y” vibe. Nom.

Stayed a little longer in town yesterday. Grocery store would probably be sold out of lau lau and kalua pork by the time The Mouse drove back. Took a chance at a “hole-in-the-wall”.

Back Entrance

Of course, being Friday, had to try the “Hawaiian plate”.

Lau Lau, Mac Salad, Kalua Pork and Cabbage, Rice

Not bad, not as good as grocery store, but, what’s the bumper sticker message? “A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work”? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
