So a week ago was mooncake day? Both The Cat and The Mouse were too busy. Plus hard to go to Chinatown.

The Mouse picked up some take-out yesterday. In The Mouse’s mind, worthy substitutes, Hee hee.

Fried Mochi Balls

Two bite sized. Perfect. No, The Mouse did not eat them all in one sitting. Warms up great in the toaster oven. The Cat is refraining, still on antibiotics.

Of course, The Mouse made a meal. Hee hee again.

Rice Cake, Char Siu Manapua

One last “must have”, according to The Mouse. 🙂

Roast Pork and Char Siu

Enough for a couple of days. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

Special #2 :)

Neighborhood Chinese/drive-inn take-out (dinner was this or Panda Express). Hee hee.

Special #2

All rice (no mac salad), spicy eggplant, chicken katsu. Enough food to contribute to four meals. 🙂

Panda Express has its place, but not last night. Supporting small local business.

Stay safe and well.

Looks like Panda Express was extremely generous with the food yesterday.

Lots of Food!

Super greens, string bean chicken breast, teri chicken.

The Mouse “upgraded” his food with bao buns.

Bao Bun

Enhanced with a shiso leaf and a pat of Lao Gan Ma. Mmm.

The Cat had her soup noodle bowl.


Topped with scoop of Panda Express.

There was even enough food for The Mouse’s bento today. Yay!

And …

The shiso is thriving!


One of The Mouse’s favorite herb. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Restaurants are still in take-out mode. Monday dinner.

Hamburger, Baked Potato Substitute for Fries


Ribs, Mango Kiawe Sauce


Teri-Chicken Plate

Family style, take a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Enough food for The Cat and The Mouse to take two bento each for lunch.


Stay safe and well.

The Mouse’s Saturday plans kinda went awry but turned out okay (actually more than okay) at the end. Original plan was to pick-up a Subway sandwich for dinner (whatever their daily special was), and a cookie (The Mouse likes the Subway cookies). However, due to COVID-19, store closed early (not that any employee was affected, just scheduling). Sigh.

Luckily there was an alternative close by. Kin Sun Chinese take-out. The Mouse ordered “light”. Hee hee.

Siu (Shu) Mai and Crispy Gau Gee

So, philosophically (or is it theoretically), are siu (shu) mai dumplings or meatballs. In this case, the filling is not fancy, mostly pork hash so meatball? But because of the wrapper, dumpling? Semantics, in any case, yum. The crispy gau gee? Again, simply stuffed, but very comforting. One of The Mouse’s pet peeves is when he bites in to any fried dumping and gets “air”. Not happening with these. Fully stuffed. Paws up. 🙂

And … since The Mouse was there … hee hee.

Chinese Roast Pork

Decent execution on the windward side. Saves a drive over to town. 🙂

And the cookie?

Chinese Almond Cookie

The Mouse was satiated. Until next time. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
