Just a suggestion, don’t get old. Ugh. Blood and number 1 test.

Breakfast (after tests) take out from Micky D’s (plus pantry).

The Mouse’s Breakfast

Oatmeal (for fiber), griddle cake? (first time try for The Mouse, it’s good!), breakfast burrito, lotsa condiments from the pantry.

The Mouse is not quite sure what the griddle cake is but The Mouse likes.

The Mouse ventured to the next “town” the lunch plate from a chop suey house looked interesting. Expectations exceeded.

Lunch Plate

Rice, cold ginger chicken, pot roast pork, beef and vegetables, two crispy won ton. Good stuff, reasonably priced too! Most of the chicken and little more than half of the pork going to this week’s bento for The Cat (two days), The Mouse ate the rest. Nom! Taste was decent too! Yay!

Definitely will return.

The Mouse was trying to wean off carbs but after the poking and prodding, he needed comfort food. 🙂

Off to the farmers market.

Enjoy. Eat well.

For various reasons, no soup this week.

The Mouse picked up roast duck from one of The Cat’s favorite places.

Half Order Roast Duck

Since The Mouse was there …

Mixed Plate from Asian Mix

Fried rice, chow funn noodles, bitter melon with beef, mushroom chicken, and eggplant with pork. Most of the land meat groups covered. Hee hee.

Not sure Asian Mix wanted to show an open kitchen, but there it was.

Duck, Chicken, Pork

Mmm, noms!

Enjoy. Eat well.

After the doc appointment (which lasted over an hour), The Mouse had to eat (no breakfast before appoinment), stopped in Chinatown bakery before heading back to work.

Chinese Noms

Savory Chinese pastries and manapua. Happy Mouse.

Steamed Taro Cake

One of The Mouse’s favorites, besides the char siu manapua. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse had a routine lunch, okra and canned fish, peanut butter sandwich. Nothing exciting.

The Cat, normally would not have ordered the daily special, not enough vegetables for her, but.

Ginger Onion Chicken and Char Siu on Rice

Turns out, The Cat likes. There was enough ginger onion sauce to mix into the rice, tasty, the char siu was a little fatty, which The Cat also likes. Because The Cat is still “dieting”, she brought home a sizable portion for The Mouse to “share the guilt”. Hee hee.

The Cat is thinking of doing it again next week, The Mouse might get another “mousie bag”. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse had to pick-up his prescription near the airport. “Chinese-American” eats nearby. Throwback decades ago when Chinese food was “exotic”. Restauranteurs here would offer Chinese food, burgers and fries, and plate lunches to appeal to the masses. To The Mouse, this place is a rare-find relic to the past.

The Mouse’s original plan was won ton soup with vegetables and a burger. An accurate order would have been saimin and a burger (It’s a local thing), but The Mouse is a rebel. Hee hee.

But Saturday special noodles was cheaper. Remember, The Mouse is sometimes “pake”.

Crispy Gau Gee Mein

Gravy, not soup, gau gee, not won ton, fried not steamed. Same same, hee hee.

Before, at these Chinese-American places, cornstarch slurry is a constant friend. Same here.

To make a true “Chinese-American” experience, The Mouse also ordered.

Hamburger Delux

Everything for less than 10 bucks! Prices must be throwback too! Hee hee.

Not to leave The Cat out, The Mouse picked up half a roast duck for her dindin and bento protein.

Roast Duck

The Cat’s verdict? Not bad, Chinatown is better, but it’s decent. No complaints.

Enjoy. Eat well.
