After Sunday’s breakfast (corned beef hash), Monday’s lunch.

Corned Beef and Cabbage Plate

Rice, corn, and cabbage went to The Cat’s bento, mixed veggies eaten immediately, corned beef portioned out to at least two sessions.

Didja know that corned beef is not really common Irish? More Americanized? Meat of choice would’ve been salted pork or “bacon”. Yay!

And since I was waiting for the bed sheets to dry at the laundromat (we usually prefer air dry, but the bed sheets are too big and cumbersome), had a matcha smoothie from next door.

Matcha Smoothie

This place lets the customer order the degree of sweetness in their drinks, The Mouse ordered the least amount of sugar. 🙂

One of the better matcha flavored foods in a while.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Wall Art and Drinks

Last night, the teacher/mentor/trainer that The Cat took a public speaking class from debuted her new book. The Cat went to support, The Mouse tagged along.

Manifest in Chinatown.

Wall Art

The place looks like an alleyway between two buildings. Exposed brickwork, cement floor, bare bones. Upscale dive bar?

The Place

I think because of the exposed brick, and cement floor, the place gets very noisy. Too noisy for The Mouse.

More Wall Art

The Cat and The Mouse each got a coupon for a beer or soft drink.

The Cat’s Beer



Not bad, light, refreshing.

The Mouse’s Lilikoi Italian Soda


Part II, dinner, tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat (and drink) well.

It was Mrs. P’s b-day the other day. Chef made a birthday cake. The Cat requested a slice.

Chef sent over a picture with the caption “here’s your cake”.


Chef sent over a box the next day.

Shipping Container

Box was large enough to fit a whole cake. The Cat thought chef made another whole cake for her. Silly cat.


A slice of hazelnut mousse with meringue, whipped cream, coconut, and berries. Already starting to disintegrate. The Cat and her minion ate it in The Cat’s office. Cake would not have survived for The Mouse to taste.

That’s okay. The Mouse had a beer.

Ginger Beer

Less drama and trauma. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not really, but, he is pretty compelling. Check out the commercial.


The Cat brought home a sample bottle from the food bank fund raiser she attended.


Pretty good. Better than diet soda.

The Mouse doesn’t usually like coconut, but this is an exception.

The other drinks The Mouse is currently “researching” is ginger beer and ginger ale.

According to the food enthusiast co-worker, ginger beer is naturally carbonated through fermentation, ginger beer is mechanically carbonated.

Besides the current favorite, Bundaberg ginger beer, discovered a new favorite.

Ginger Ale

The drink is unfiltered. There are pieces of ginger in the bottle. Marketing ploy? Dunno, tastes good though.

So, what’s your favorite drink?

Enjoy. Eat (and drink) well. 🙂

Not Moscow, Just the Mule

Exploring ginger beer lately. The Mouse does like ginger ale, but never had ginger beer. One of the cousins likes so does the campus receptionist (in office where The Mouse works).

Picked up one to try try.


Not bad, less carbonation than ginger ale, stronger ginger flavor.

Still like ginger ale too!

Just learned what a Moscow Mule is. Tonight, no vodka nor lemon juice. Must do more research. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
