Eatin’ Light-ish

Dinner at an izakaya! Can’t wait. Takes a bit of planning, eating-wise.

Breakfast.

Microwave Rice

With seaweed and shiso furikake, see the pattern? Looks like one of those color-blind tests. Hee hee.

Lunch.

Fruit

Fruit

Cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes. Because.

Anticipation!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lately, whenever we eat at Ruby Tuesday, The Mouse’s order is the same, three sides (spaghetti squash, broccoli, and zucchini) with salad bar.

Plate #1

Mushrooms, broccoli, French dressing, bacon. 🙂

Plate #3

Plate #3

Similar to plate #1. Plate #2 was different, potato salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, fruit, but The Mouse forgot to take a picture. Was really into the mushrooms and broccoli Sunday.

There’s a very pake reason for being a creature of habit, The Mouse can eat his fill on the salad bar and take the vegetables home for lunch the next day. Two meals! Plus, the order is one of the cheaper dishes on the menu that includes the salad bar. Ka-chang! Hee hee!

The Cat was more up to trying something new.

ATM Benedict with Fruit Bowl

Can’t find description on-line (“what does ATM mean???), but, it was vegetarian with avocado, tomato, and mushrooms (if I had to guess).

We arrived just between breakfast and lunch. The Cat ordered breakfast, The Mouse ordered “lunch”. Perfect.

The Mouse's Lunch

Zucchini and spaghetti squash. 🙂

Hope you had a happy Valentine’s day (if you are so inclined).

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s regular duck noodle place has been hit or miss lately. Thought we’d change it up for this past Sunday. Our old stomping grounds, Kin Wah Chop Suey.

Pot Roast Duck Soup Noodle

Pot Roast Duck Soup Noodle

As far as we know, it’s the only place that has pot roast duck (vs. roast duck) soup noodle on the menu (they also have roast duck soup noodle on the menu).

The difference is the duck is softer, the fat isn’t rendered out, the taste is more stew than char. The Cat had fun and leftovers for dinner.

The Mouse went with a chop suey staple.

Special Plate "B"

Special Plate “B”

Kau Yuk, Spareribs, Beef Broccoli, Fried Shrimp, Crisp Gau Gee & Rice. Sooo Chinese. Not! Hee hee.

Anyways, the sweet sour spareribs inspired The Mouse to try his own version.

Country Style Pork Spare Ribs

Country Style Pork Spare Ribs

A little too lean, but, was cheap.

Vinegar, salt, sugar, sake, braise for a couple of hours.

Sweet Sour Spare Ribs - The Mouse Version

Sweet Sour Spare Ribs – The Mouse Version

A little too meaty, flavor didn’t penetrate enough. We’ll see how the leftovers are (after sitting in the braising liquid)

Enjoy. Eat well.

This past Tuesday, first day back at school for the students. Office buys us lunch with the understanding that we are available (read eat at our desk and don’t leave, except for bathroom). Okay dokey.

Char Siu Pork Sandwich

Diamond Head Market and Grill, my old stomping grounds from two years ago. Chinese style, marinated thin slices of pork. Yum.

Fries

Perfect grazing food. 🙂

I know, not much vegetables, I coulda ordered a salad but it would’ve probably be too messy on the desk.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Olde Skool

Before Macyʻs, there was Liberty House. There was a restaurant called The Gazebo. They served reasonably priced meals, nothing fancy, but someplace in the mall to have a sit down meal. After the store became Macyʻs, the restaurant was “upgraded” and a celebrity chefʻs name was attached to it. Of course, prices rose to reflect the celebrity chef status. Thatʻs in town.

On our side of the mountain, I guess we are still considered small town enough. The Gazebo is still here.

New Yearʻs eve lunch.

Shoyu Pork

Shoyu Pork

Shoyu pork, vegetable, rice, and a side salad, ten bucks. Cheap eats.

See, more cafeteria food than celebrity chef “gourmet” food. Comfort food at itʻs best.

Being that I got there 5 minutes before closing, the gravy had simmered down thick and rich (and a little too salty). Plus, the cook used shoulder instead of belly, a little on the lean side. But still good.

Talk about nostalgia, in a good way.

Enjoy. Eat well.
