The Mouse’s new “acquired taste”. He did not appreciate the taste before, but lately, The Mouse likes. 🙂


Helps that the nearby grocery store is starting to stock more Japanese products. The Bull-Dog sauce doesn’t replace ketchup, but another option in The Mouse’s “quiver”.

The Mouse used a MikeyD coupon, picked-up a quarter-pounder for dinner, no onions, light mustard, light ketchup, no salt, to better experience the Bull-Dog sauce.

The Mouse’s Quarter Pounder with Bull-Dog Sauce

Mmm! 🙂

Thinner consistency than ketchup, less sweet, more tart. The Mouse is not giving up ketchup, just adding more flavors. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The nearby MickyD is running a BOGO promotion this month. The Mouse is taking advantage of the deal. The ideal set-up: less ketchup, more pickles, no cheese, no salt. The Mouse added sliced turnip, zucchini, and a Napa cabbage stem (the leaf portion went into The Cat’s soup) from the refridge.

Hee hee.

The hamburger patty and half baked potato from yesterday.


Warmed and topped with pork liver spread. Mmm.

My doctor is probably throwing a fit and to be honest, the food was a little heavy in the stomach, but very tasty, and for a once in awhile eats, worth it. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Birthday lunch for Mrs. P. at Mariposa, a milestone birthday (not revealing age). Hee hee. Chef P. made arrangements with Chef L. (executive chef), who trained under Chef P. for some specials.

Complimentary salad.

Seared Ahi Tuna Salad

Excellent start, dressing was the bomb. Nom!

Everyone except The Mouse ordered smoked pork chop.

Smoked Pork Chop

A bed of risotto, grilled vegetables, not sure what the condiment was, everyone more than liked. 😉

The Mouse went with his go-to order, hamburger, medium rare.

Mariposa Cheeseburger sans Cheese

The Mouse likes to order “regular” burgers at nice restaurants. Not fancy shmancy over the top “gourmet burger” (think truffles and Kobe), but a well executed burger. Chef L. did not fail to deliver. Nicely charred on the outside, perfectly pink on the inside. Mmm! 🙂

Complimentary dessert was peach meringue tarts with torched meringue. The Mouse thought he took a pic but did not. Fail. Sigh. Very good though.

Chef L. learned well. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Ordered a take-home, raw hamburger from the steakhouse visit last weekend. The Mouse was curious, more so, the price was very reasonable for a 10 ounce patty.

The Patty

The Mouse salt and peppered, made a divot, and cooked the burger on medium heat, no sear.

Included with the order was a brioche bun, even better.

Brioche Bun

The Mouse kept it simple, burger patty (cooked medium), yellow mustard, liver spread.

Stratified Pic

Mmm! The Mouse was extremely satisfied. Meat quality was out of this world, tender and juicy.

Sorry, no bite pic, after the first bite, too juicy, The Mouse got distracted. Given the opportunity, The Mouse would do it again. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
