From a former co-worker.

Fruit Arrangement

Came tied with a happy face balloon. 🙂

And a box of chocolate dipped fruit.

Chocolate Dipped

Apples, bananas, strawberries. Yum!

Shared the chocolate dipped fruit with The Cat. Ate the whole thing yesterday. Breakfast of champions. Hee hee.

Big mahalo to M. You made The Mouse’s day!

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s Flatbread

One of the reasons The Cat passed on her mudd pie this past Sunday was that there were tentative plans to visit the neighborhood Italian eatery for dinner with the hope of whiskey gelato for dessert.

The Cat started off with vegetable flatbread, happy hour special.

Vegetable Flatbread

The Cat would order again.

The Mouse didn’t fare as well. An overpriced chicken salad.

Chicken Salad

Tasted good (tender greens & arugula, roasted beets, Ho Farms cherry tomato, onion, spiced mac nuts,
chevre & papaya seed vinaigrette), the portion was just too small for The Mouse, even at happy hour discount. 😦

Alas, not whiskey gelato, but blackberry chardonnay sorbet.


An acceptable substitute.

What did Meatloaf sing? Two outta three ain’t bad?

Enjoy. Eat well.

Odds and Ends

Still nothing much going on. The Cat had last-minute deadlines to attend to, The Mouse kinda in neutral gear.

The Mouse’s Breakfast

Raisin and vanilla sugar roll from one of the Japanese/French/German bakeries. Nom.

Fish Snack?

Not quite sure what the purpose of this food is for, snack?, condiment?, Dunno. Sent over from The Cat’s brother.

The Cat’s brother seems to like these little packages of stuff. Must be his busy work schedule and lotsa travel. Eats on the go.

The Mouse’s Lunch

That fish thingy (bottom left corner, leftover bread from The Cat’s lunch (with accompanying olive oil), canned spinach (The Mouse watched way too much Popeye cartoons small kid time).

The fish is slightly dried and spicy, over hot rice maybe, or substitute for chasiu in a soup noodle. Not bad.

Key Lime Pie

The Cat’s self-reward for dealing with the deadlines. The Cat will have to find another venue as Ryan’s Grill is closing next month. 😦

Blessings for a happy, healthy, and hopeful new year!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yauatcha adventure, part 2.

Just a reminder, where we ate (see previous post).



Red fruits mascarpone

Strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant compote, pistachio.

I think that what this was, we kinda left dessert choices up to our server.

Tropical dome

Coconut dacquoise, lililko’i, pineapple.

Chefs compared this to a super light cheesecake in texture and taste.

Raspberry delice

Raspberry, Manjari chocolate, lychee.

And of course, can’t leave without a macaron (or two).


Dunno the flavors, left that up to our server, The Mouse went to the restroom before the desserts came out, returned to table and plates were served, chefs were ready to dive in. They liked.

Enjoy. Eat well.

But first, update on the pork foot soup.

Solidified Beautifully

Yesterday. First day of classes on campus. Cashiers have to operate their window constantly. As a show of “unity”, no one goes out for lunch. Office buys lunch in. The Mouse ordered vegetarian chili.

Office also brought in desserts and snacks (co-worker’s b-day).




After eating the cake and fruit, The Mouse was too full for the chili. Took it home for dindin.

The Mouse’s Dinner Plate

Hollowed out baked potato (from Sunday’s lunch), filled with sun-dried tomato, the potato “inside”, topped with Zippy’s vegetarian chili. Nom! 🙂

Today is supposed to be more of the same, just no “free” lunch. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.
