This past Tuesday, noodles (and stuff) from the neighborhood chop suey (Kin Wah Chop Suey). The Cat let The Mouse choose the dishes.

Pork Chop Suey Noodle

Surprise to The Mouse, the pork is char siu. Happy!

Probably can’t find anything like that in China, it’s Chop Suey food! Almost its own category/sub-category.

Choi Sum

Veggies for The Cat, especially greens. Hee hee.

Steamed Won Ton with Spicy Ginger Onion Sauce

The Mouse’s favorite, same sauce as cold ginger chicken with chili flakes. Big yum!

Even had leftovers, except for the won ton (has to be eaten fresh). 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

New Year’s Eve Eats

First to Nordstrom to pick up tomato soup, one of The Cat’s elderly client took a spill over the holidays and mobility was challenging. Since we were there … lunch!  🙂

Tomato Basil Bisque

The Cat had a bowl of soup too.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

The Mouse had a cup.

Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta


Tofu Salad

The Cat’s usual.

Chicken Club Sandwich

The Mouse’s. Sandwich came with either side salad or fries. The Mouse really wanted fries, but deferred to the salad. Sigh.

Early dinner at the neighborhood cafe.

More Soup

This time, minestrone.

The Cat’s Pasta

Arriabata penne with shrimp. Requested mild.

The Mouse’s Pork Piccata

Butter, lemon, capers. Mmm!

In bed before midnight, no champagne. Hibernating. Hee hee.

Heading out for Chinese, with The Cat’s old relative.

Blessing to you and your for a happy, healthy, and hopeful new year!

Enjoy. Eat well.

A quick sidetrack to the neighborhood “cafe”.


The Cat ordered the special of the day.

Seared Ahi over Mushroom Risotto

The Mouse ordered

Pork Marsala over Linguine

Somehow the dish reminded me of Chinese style chow funn with gravy. The Mouse even splashed a little shoyu over the dish to balance the sweetness. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
