Sidetracked

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).

Cake

And

Fruit

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.

Met up with Auntie M, her sorta ex-daughter-in-law (don’t ask, I’m confused too).

Nothing fancy, CPK in Kahala Mall.

A little appetizer for the table.

Crispy Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Menu description: Our classic mac ‘n’ cheese lightly fried with panko, served on creamy cheese sauce. Not bad, thought it could be creamier.

Banh Mi Bowl

The Cat’s order, menu description: Quinoa, baby kale, fresh cilantro & mint topped with grilled chicken, watermelon radishes, fresh avocado, cucumbers, carrots, bean sprouts, scallions and sesame seeds. Served with housemade chili-lime vinaigrette and serrano peppers.

The Cat didn’t mind the bowl. The Mouse thought the menu picture looked better than the actual bowl (didn’t taste it tho’).

California Club and Dakota Smashed Pea + Barley Soup

The Mouse’s order, menu description: Grilled chicken breast with fresh avocado and Nueske’s applewood smoked bacon.

Decent. Had the soup before, green and hearty.

Stratified View

Kitchen was generous with the ingredients, especially the mayo. Now, to put it in perspective, here in SPAM Land, mayo is its own food group (think mac and potato salad). But for this sandwich, the ingredients were just a touch overwhelmed by the mayo, IMO.

Food was decent, just not wow. Plus, The Cat had a promotional gift card that helped with the check.

Sometimes, it’s just not about the food but the gathering of friends and family.

🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fowl Day

Almost turned into foul day. Food-wise, day was planned out. Lunch and dinner from the grocery store, different branches. Lunch, grilled chicken (local BBQ), dinner, turkey.

Lunch went off without a hitch.

You’ve seen this before.

 

Grilled Chicken, Okinawan Sweet Potato, Steamed Vegetables

Dinner was a different ball of wax.

Branch near home ran out of food (each branch has different daily menus). Wha? Wah!

I was originally gonna title the post Times 2 but the “out of food” situation kinda threw a monkey wrench into the plan, or is it Murphey’s Law?

Luckily, the nearby Zippy’s saved the food day.

Bag

Not nearly as cheap, and no drink included, but turkey is turkey.

Turkey Plate, All Tossed Salad

The Mouse did some “modifications” at home.

Add Tomato and Okinawan Sweet Potato

The day sorta turned out okay.

What adventure will today be?

Enjoy. Eat well.

A morning trip to the laundromat, to wash towels. Our washer at home is a little skittish when it comes to washing heavier items. Lunch, take out from Panda Express, The Mouse’s new go-to take out (lots of veggies), don’t have to order massive carbs.

The Mouse’s Take Out

Steamed veggies (instead of rice or noodles), broccoli beef, and mushroom chicken (aka moo goo gai pan). The Mouse ate the steamed veggies, the beef, and the zucchini (in the moo goo gai pan). The broccoli (from the broccoli beef) and the chicken and mushrooms went to tomorrow’s bento for The Cat.

After a late afternoon appointment, dinner at the mall (Ruscello in Nordstroms). No immediate seating inside. Weather pretty calm and dry, took seating outside.

Soup

The Cat’s

Roma Tomato Basil

The Mouse’s

Steak and Barley Soup

Nom!

The Cat ate late lunch so went with an “appetizer”.

Grilled Farm Bread Bruschetta

Seasonal tomatoes, burrata cheese, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, extra virgin olive oil, micro basil.

Being that The Mouse kinda had a “light” lunch, The Mouse ordered

Grilled Skirt Steak

Roasted asparagus, carrots, yukon gold potatoes, lemon basil vinaigrette. Everything was awesome (socks off), especially the price point. One exception, was the vinaigrette. Asked for catsup (horror or horrors for some) Hee hee.

Instead of ordering dessert in the restaurant, went outside to the Gelato Bar for an açaí bowl.

Açaí Bowl

A nom kinda day.

For those of you that are, hope you had a happy mother’s day.

Enjoy. Eat well.
