Trying a new can of tuna. The Cat’s mother picked it up.


Solid, in olive oil.

Mouse Plate

Okra, banana, orange, tuna.

The tuna was great, socks off good. 🙂

Better than the el cheapo bargain tins (“chunk light”) we’ve eaten. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No, The Mouse is not Catholic, must be the influence on campus. In the mood for fish today.

But first, a visit to the chocolate shop.

Easter Chocolates

The bunnies and chicks are sitting on an old-fashioned cold appetizer cart. I think the way it works is under the perforated disk is ice to keep the plates cold as the cart is wheeled around a dining room. Some of the chocolates are hollow and filled with jelly beans and whatnot.

So since I was in the vicinity … a short hop to the original Bob’s Bar-B-Cue. The baked beans and Polish sausage plate will just have to wait for another time.

Grilled Ahi Sandwich

The shiso leaf is from The Cat and The Mouse’s bucket garden.

And, since this was the first meal of the day (not breakfast, kinda “brunch”).

Fried Oyster Sandwich

After a Kobe (you know, cow massage) session with a new masseuse, a walk around the neighborhood mall, something “lite”.

Mc D’s Filet-O-Fish Sandwich

Again, shiso leaf from the bucket garden.

If it’s frozen and square, is it still considered “fish”, especially in SPAM land? Just rhetorical. Uhmm.

Seems like today’s kitchens kinda went overboard with the tartar sauce. Oh well.

I think my craving for fish sandwiches (cooked) has been satiated for the time being.

So, how’s your weekend going so far?

Enjoy. Eat well.

Squishy Food, Part II

Old school “poke”.

The Mouse’s first experience with “fish cake” was from Chinatown, one of dad’s favorite foods (along with pork belly, in any form). Fish meat, scraped from the bones (after the fishmonger fileted the fish). Mixed with cornstarch and seasoning. Resembled paste.

Fried up, or boiled in broth, quick and easy (especially if someone else prepared it) meal. Don’t get me wrong, the actual prepare was/is pretty labor intensive, especially if done by hand and not by food processor.

Native Hawaiians also have a bonefish paste concoction, lomi oio. Best I can describe it is spoon scraped fish meat massaged “lomi” with salt, seaweed, kukui nut meat, etc. Eaten raw.

Our director was talking about lomi oio from Fresh Catch. Got the Mouse’s salivary glands working. Had to pick up a container.

Lomi Oio

Not sure about the appropriate way to eat this, The Mouse spread it on crackers. Yum!

It’s an acquired texture, briny tasting fish paste with crunchy ingredients, but The Mouse loves it.

It’s the start of a long weekend. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Cubicle neighbor mentioned yesterday she might go to Tamura’s Fine Wine and Liquors (for poke bowl) today and if I wanted to tag-along. Still had the leftover kau yuk to deal with.

Light bulb.


Brown Rice, Kau Yuk, Japanese Salted Cabbage, and Dried Plums

Okay, cleared the way for poke bowl for lunch. Hee hee.

Tried combo bowl for lunch.

Masago Ahi Poke and Wasabi Crawfish on Brown Rice

The ahi poke was okay (uneventful), should’ve stuck with the all crawfish like the first time. Oh well, try try.

Dinner was back at Bob’s Bar-B-Que for another sandwich.

Grilled Ahi Sandwich

Trust me, the sandwich was a lot better than the picture. Fish not overcooked, perfect tarter sauce, bun not soggy/mushy this time. Nom!

There’s a baked bean/Polish sausage plate I really want to try. Heading back there soon!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fish Friday

No, The Mouse is not Catholic, but being that it’s Lent season, and I work at a Marianist establishment, thought I’d show just a little bit of solidarity.

Nah, just an excuse to get this.

Poke Bowl!

Poke Bowl!

Hee hee! White rice, furikake, Hawaiian style ahi poke. Mmm! 🙂

From one of the local grocery stores (most of them offer their take on poke bowls, even the mainland chains).

Much more desirable than a fish fry, at least to The Mouse.

Happy Friday!

Enjoy. Eat well.
