“Happy Meal”

The Mouse has been a fan of Mickey D’s Happy Meal “forever”. Kinda like Cracker Jacks (when the toys inside were better).

The Mouse also loves steak and foie gras combo.

Last night’s Happy Meal mod was the best. The poor mouse version of steak and foie gras. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s Happy Meal

Extra onions, extra pickle, slice of liverwurst (from the refridge), the burger patty is underneath. Nom! The Mouse think this will be the new Happy Meal from now on. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saturday schedule, super whacked. Late afternoon lunch after dropping off presents. The Mouse wanted something simple. Palace Saimin all the way across town, way too far (with Christmas shopping traffic). Ended up here.

Front

Another fifty-year plus establishment.

The Mouse opted for a local fave combo.

Smalll Saimin with Vegetables

And.

Hamburger Deluxe

Why we in SPAM Land eat these two dishes together? Dunno. but that’s the way it is. Hee hee.

Oh, and in keeping a theme running. This place also had a little pond.

Koi Pond

Smaller number of koi, cute. No fish food though. Sigh.

Oh, and if you look closely at the first picture, notice the help wanted sign. Looking for all positions, no experience necessary. Maybe The Mouse will apply for something in the kitchen. Hee hee.

Hope your holiday season has been happy so far.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s dinner. Local Boy Sushi. Primarily catering with a small take-out window.

Big Bruddah Bowl

Not that big, shallow bowl, not quite enough rice. Ahi poke (decent), spicy tuna (decent), kalua pork (good), smoked pork (winner), unagi (weakest link), shrimp tempura (passable).

And, no stop at Local Boy Sushi without Mr. Lee’s hamburger (deluxe).

Mr. Lee’s Hamburger Deluxe

Super old school. 😉

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mid-week farmers market to buy bread. Didn’t exactly have the type The Mouse wanted so “settled”. Sigh.

And since The Mouse was there …

A quick stop at Ruby Tuesday. Hee hee.

Classic Burger

Medium rare. One of The Mouse’s “usual”.

And … being “pake”, gotta make two meals out of one. Hee hee.

So … first meal is what the server called the “salad” sandwich.

Modified

Burger for later, left side untouched, right side loaded up with mushrooms and bacon from the salad bar. 🙂

Next night, bread (from the farmers market), the burger, schmear of Vegemite, Dijon mustard, and pickles from Picnics from the Vine (farmers market vendor), and shiso leaves.

The Mouse’s “Burger”

Probably the last shiso leaves of the season. 😦

In The Mouse’s humble opinion, the second burger was better than any commercial combination. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Plain and Simple

Sometimes, plain and simple is good.

My sorta consistent Sunday lunch from Ruby Tuesday after Sunday farmer’s market at the mall.

Classic Burger with Fries

So, The Mouse’s regular routine would be add on and fill up on the salad bar, eat the fries (‘cuz in The Mouse’s opinion, leftover fries are eck), take home the burger for later (leftover burgers are the bomb!).

This week, the burger was extra juicy and the bun got super soggy. Not good for leftover. The Mouse took out the burger, ate the rest of the sandwich (veggie sandwich), and too home only the patty.

Picke up a “fresh” bun from the grocery store.

Bun

The Mouse was hoping to find a sesame seed or pretzel bun, no such luck.

Pop the patty a few minutes in the toaster oven to “warm”, not cook.

A spread of Vegemite (thanks Yummy Lummy!), a shiso leaf, and voila!

Burger, Mouse Style

The Vegemite adds umami, like teri sauce, but not as sweet, and not as messy. The shiso leaf gives The Mouse the impression he is eating his vegetables. Hee hee.

No need fancy sauces, gourmet accouterments, plain and simple. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
