Morton’s The Steakhouse running a holiday dinner prixe fix dinner menu. One appetizer (half portion), one entrΓ©e, one side, one dessert.

Both The Cat and The Mouse started with jumbo shrimp cocktail.

Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail

Nom! Next time, The Mouse is going to request extra horseradish. Mmm!

Again, both The Cat and The Mouse ordered Ora king salmon.

Ora King Salmon

This dish is nice because included is a bed of mixed vegetables (cauliflower, edamame, tomatoes, etc). Other steak dishes do not come with the vegetables (Manago hotel plating).

Desserts were different.

Key Lime Pie for The Cat
Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake for The Mouse

The cake lived up to its hype, legendary. πŸ™‚ (The Cat got the ice cream).

Stay safe and well.

About twice a month, The Mouse is treated to handmade pies from an Irish pub. Alternates between blueberry and mixed berry.

Blueberry Pie

Both are very tasty, expensive, but tasty.

A while back, The Mouse was in Walmart, came across small boxes of individual “fruit” pies. The Mouse tried.

Blueberry Pie
Bite View

The price of the Walmart pie is like 1/14th of the slice from the Irish pub. The Walmart pie filling is mostly jam, while the pub pie is fruit. The Mouse appreciates both for different reasons, just not too often.

Totally unrelated but last night’s pre-pie “healthy” nom.

Banana with Peanut Butter

Or is it peanut butter with banana, semantics. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Recent bowls (both The Cat’s and The Mouse’s).

Jook with Leftovers

From Sunday’s Korean brunch.

The Mouse’s Lunch

Pasta shells with canned sardines and frozen mixed vegetables, heavily seasoned with turmeric. Sardines and turmeric, interesting flavors, The Mouse might do this again. Hee hee.

Vegetable Jook with Pickled Mustard Cabbage

Another jook bowl for The Cat. The Cat wasn’t complaining. πŸ™‚

Stay safe and well.

The Cat and The Mouse confirmed a favorite dish, Big City Diner.

Stir-Fried Vegetables with Rice

The Cat added tofu to her dish.

Stir-Fried Vegetables and Tofu with Rice

Next time, The Cat is ordering without the tofu. Her opinion was that the tofu didn’t enhance the dish and she got less vegetables because the tofu took some of the volume.

Portion was enough for The Cat and The Mouse to take home another meal.

As a reward for eating well, The Cat and The Mouse shared an “apple pie”.

Apple Pie Ala Mode

Two puff pastries sandwiching apple and raisin filling. The Mouse’s opinion a pretty awesome riff. πŸ™‚

The Cat ate most of the ice cream and whipped cream because The Mouse was avoiding aftershocks. Heh heh.

Stay safe and well.

Some of our recent take-outs. πŸ™‚

From Chef P., dessert.

Tapioca Pudding with Berries

The Mouse thinks Chef made this for The Cat’s birthday (a couple of weeks ago), Chef forgot. The tapioca was more boba-ish (chewy) than tapioca (soft), but still appreciated.

Tamago, Inari, and Poke

The Mouse’s lunch yesterday, from the grocery store reduced section. Just stocked, totally worth it. Hee hee.

The Mouse went to the nearby mall to pick a card, decided to pick dinner at the food court, ramen shop ran out of rice (sigh), picked side dishes.

Pork Belly and Takana

Boiled a carrot, added wakame, angel hair pasta, topped with pork belly and takana (mustard cabbage cooked with sesame oil and a little shichimi togarashi (Japanese chili powder blend).

Bowl of Noodles (Pasta)

The Cat slurped.

Stay safe and well.
