The Cat and The Mouse have not visited the neighborhood pho restaurant in a couple of weeks, too many eating adventures. We went back this past Sunday.

The Cat had her usual.

Oxtail Soup with Pho Noodles

The Mouse ordered lemongrass chicken, partly so he could have leftovers. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lemongrass Chicken

Mmm. The Mouse added a side of sashimi.


Mmm squared. Yes, The Mouse shared.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse “wasting not”. Hee hee.

Thigh bones and chicken skin, accumulated from various bento, not a pretty sight, turn away if you are squimish.

Bones and Skin

Bones into a pot of water, ginger, and vinegar. Slow simmer for hours.

Take out bones, throw in leftover rice. Medium boil for 3 minutes, remove rice to bowl.

Add Napa cabbage, medium boil for 1 minute, remove to bowl.

Splash of whiskey, quick stir, soup to bowl.

Garnish with chicken skin.

Chicken Rice Soup with Cabbage

The Cat liked.

Be safe and well.

Kinda. Last month’s special at Ruby Tuesday, all pasta dishes discounted. The Cat and The Mouse made it in on the last day.

Grilled Chicken and Brocolli Pasta

All of the pasta selections contained dairy, The Mouse went with an alternative.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Baked Potato

A very good alternative to a burger (and a dollar or so cheaper). Baked potato substituted for fries (and amout 200 calories less). Less less, win win. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

Oxtail soup to start The Cat’s week. Go-to Japanese/Pho Restaurant in the neighborhood.

Oxtail Soup

The Mouse was going to order a steamed fish filet with ginger, kitchen was out. Sigh. Alternative was chicken katsu.

Chicken Katsu

There are now two places in the neighborhood that The Mouse can go for chicken katsu, which could be both good and bad. Good is that food is good, bad because The Mouse should be eating healthier. Moderation.

The Mouse also ordered a plate of spring rolls.

Spring Rolls

The vegetables and noodles give the impression of being “healthier”. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

Mark-down at the grocery store.

Seaweed Paste

The Mouse doesn’t know what the original price was (guess less than $5.00) marked down to $0.99. The Mouse compares it to Vegemite. Lots of umami. Inside pics later.

Late visit to farmers market at the mall.

One vendor, trying to not take home leftovers, offered The Mouse a two-fer.

Lemongrass Fried Chicken Wings

Normally $7.00.

Fried Stuffed Chicken Wings

Normally $8.00

Two containers $10.00. One-third off. Not too bad. ๐Ÿ™‚

The chicken wings could be part of three, maybe four meals. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.
