Long Day

The Cat and The Mouse took in an airshow yesterday. An adventure to be sure.

Fly By

The Blue Angels was the highpoint.

Equipment Plane

Unsung heroes of the stars.

On the Line

The Cat and The Mouse tickets included food and drink. Let’s just say the food and drink were less than expected. Highpoint of the food was the poi.

Poi

Thick and just barely turning sour. The Mouse ate three containers. Mmm.

The rest of the food and the logistics were meh.

After the show, took us forever to get off base. Parking/traffic control was less than meh.

Late dinner at Ruby Tuesday.

Salad Bar Salad

The Cat’s Vegetable Plate

The Mouse’s Fish Sandwich

Like any adventure, there are ups and downs, in the end, all good. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Dessert, The Cat’s

Strawberry parfait, Italian ladyfingers, fresh macerated strawberries, mascarpone cheese, chantilly cream.

Too much dairy for The Mouse.

The Cat and The Mouse very happy and full. And happy birthday to Mrs. P.

Be safe and well.

More boar than hog? Hee hee!

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

One of the better preparations. The Cat and The Mouse liked. 🙂

Prosecco

The Cat had a glass.

Mongolian BBQ Back Ribs

Mmm delicious.

Grilled Pork Bao Buns

The pork belly had a good balance of meat and fat, the pickled vegetables were yummy. The Mouse felt the texture of the buns was too dense, not pillowy fluffy enough. Maybe kitchen needs to find a Chinese manapua master. Hee hee.

Sauteed Hamachi

Not bad.

Pineapple Skillet

Maple rum sauce, oat crumble, coconut milk sorbet. All non-dairy. The Mouse was happy. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Yogurt and toast, from the previous post.

French Onion Soup – No Cheese

The Mouse really liked this version. Could taste the soup and onions without the cheese goo. Paws up.

Beef Tenderloin Florentine

Apple wood smoked bacon wrapped, soft poached egg, pan sauce, spinach, and Lyonnaise potatoes. Mmm.

Apple Pecan Crumble Pie

So good! 🙂

Chef gave The Mouse two extra pies to take home. Mmm!

Be safe and well.
