Archive for the ‘Condiments’ Category

Small-kid time, hanabata days, The Mouse preferred his hot dogs plain, unadulterated. Nowadays, hot dogs for The Mouse is mostly about the condiments. No doubt, the hot dog and bun has to be good too, but, the accouterments play a major part in the experience.

Hot Dog

The Cat bought gas for her car, brought home a hot dog for The Mouse (so he could make his own gas). Hee hee.

No condiments from the snack bar. The Mouse has his own.

Pickled okra, pickled carrots (both from Picnics From The Vine), Dijon mustard, ketchup.

Chomp. 🙂

Heading to Costco for a hot dog now! Hee hee.

Remember this jar?

Strawberry and Brandy Preserve

Finally opened.

Strawberry and Brandy Preserve

Consistency more liquid-y than “jammy”, no matter.

Toasted the “rustic” bun.


Split (like an English muffin).

Slathered butter, back in the toaster to melt, one side just butter, the other side butter and the strawberry preserve.

Toast with Butter and Strawberry (and Brandy) Preserve

Nom! Not too much brandy taste, guess the alcohol was cooked out, that’s okay, doc says alcohol and The Mouse’s meds don’t mix anyways. Still tasty. Will try and purchase from the vendor as often as the pocketbook permits (gotta support local small business).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Farmers market buy.

Strawberry and Brandy Preserve


May Contain Alcohol?

Hee hee.

Vendor works out of her kitchen. Mixes whatever she thinks will work, no formal culinary training. Wouldn’t mind helping in her kitchen.

Needed a bread worthy of her efforts.

From the Grocery Store

The JJ2 square bread would work, but The Mouse felt needed something more … hearty and rustic (or dainty like croissants). The Mouse’s opinion the texture of the square bread a little too “refined”.

Will update when opened and nommed. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Crunchy Stuff

Usually, it’s The Mouse that likes crunchy stuff. This time, it’s The Cat.

Our semi-regular Sunday visit to Ruby Tuesday at the mall (after farmers market). The Cat tries fried onions from the salad bar, instant like.

Picked up from the grocery store.


Now, The Cat can have crunchy stuff at home. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
