Yesterday was a good day for eating. The Mouse stayed late at work (on a Friday no less) … but The Mouse ate “well”.

Breakfast, same as yesterday. Oatcake and coffee.

Warehouse supplies the workers with coffee, but the selections can be a bit harsh at times. The nearby 7-Eleven has a 20% Kona blend, mellower.

Lunch was a tiny bit of a splurge. Japanese delicatessen.

“Mini Plate”

Shiso onigiri, kakuni (three big pieces), and tamagoyaki. The Mouse was happy.

Norma Desmond Shot

Pork was well cooked. Not soft, but fall off the bone texture.

The Cat’s lunch at one of the Irish pubs in town. Owner’s wife makes fresh pie only on Friday.

Shrimp and Crab Melt

The Cat’s sandwich, came with a side salad.

Berry Pie

The Cat brought home a slice for The Mouse. Not too sweet, lots of berry taste. Nom!

A good eating day for The Mouse.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s favorite cucumber kimchi right now. Too bad it’s from a competitor warehouse. The Mouse gotta find out if our warehouse makes these and show some loyalty. Hee hee.

Korean Quick Cucumber Kimchi

Quick breakfast.

Thank Goodness for 7-Eleven

Special of the day at the downstairs cafe in The Cat’s office building. The Cat wanted to try try.

Chicken Confit with Roasted Root Vegetables

Came with a bowl of vegetable soup.

Vegetable Soup

The Cat brought home a portion for The Mouse to try try.

Cooked well, chicken was moist and tender, vegetables were tasty, I think for The Cat, she was not used to the seasoning, The Mouse thinks paprika.

Good job, Chef.

Enjoy. Eat well.

One of The Cat’s clients. Not feeling well. Mobility an issue. Doctor has her on liquids only. Requested chicken consomme from restaurant in Neiman Marcus. First response when The Cat called was soup could be ordered but not just take out, someone has to dine-in.

So, The Cat had lunch at Neiman Marcus. Server packed a take-out bowl of soup.



Human Bag

Since The Cat was there, she had a cuppa joe (one of her favorite brands).


The Cat’s client was very appreciative and on the road to feeling better.

Enjoy. Eat well.

One of those one-pot no recipe meals.


Ground pork, salt, pepper, dark and light shoyu, ginger powder, vodka, sugar, and a drop of orange extract.

Brown, add tofu, braise.

The Cat’s Bento

With boiled turnip and roasted sweet potato (not pictured). Think mapo tofu without the heat, more teriyaki flavor.

Easy peasy.

Enjoy. Eat well.
