Comfort Food

The Mouse (and The Cat) is (are) back. Short trip to Hilo, semi-business for The Cat, The Mouse went along kinda as driver. Pics and stories coming. In the meantime, last night dinner. Schedule still out of whack, jet lag and all. Hee hee.

Max’s of Manila, near The Mouse’s workplace.

Dishes that meet The Cat’s food preferences.


Vegetables? Check. Soupy? Check.

A little too much shrimp paste for The Mouse’s taste, good with rice though.

Papaya Chicken Soup

Again, soupy? Check. Vegetables? Check.

Well cooked. Chicken was not “dried out” from overcooking, papaya was soft, but not falling apart.

Really though, the main reason for coming here was for the ube ice cream (The Cat was jonesing for).

Ube Ice Cream

The Cat would have gone for a bowl of Halo Halo, but watching her weight and too much food.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Kinda lazy day for The Mouse yesterday.

Pork Adobo and Kabocha Plate Lunch


Lechon Kawali

Roast pork, Filipino style.

Most of the rice went to The Cat’s jook (The Mouse ate a spoonful). The Mouse ate half of the pork adobo, and tried the kabocha. The Mouse and The Cat finished everything for dinner.

The Lechon Kawali will be for this week’s dinners, at least at the start of the week.

The Cat’s Jook

Seaweed, soy beans, black-eyed peas, pork fu, and sesame seeds.

Enjoy. Eat well.
