You saw The Cat’s bento yesterday, This was The Mouse’s “bento”.

Burdock Root, SPAM Musubi, Tuna Salad Musubi, Leftover Grilled Chicken

Musubi and vegetable from Mana Musubi.


Used to be Mana Bu’s, I think the original owner sold the business. While quality is still high, something is missing. Maybe the “magic”? Dunno.

University is closing its accounting books. Lots of tasks. First year for The Mouse. Lots of eating at the desk. Sigh. Hopefully it will end soon.

Happy Friday!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fowl Day

Almost turned into foul day. Food-wise, day was planned out. Lunch and dinner from the grocery store, different branches. Lunch, grilled chicken (local BBQ), dinner, turkey.

Lunch went off without a hitch.

You’ve seen this before.


Grilled Chicken, Okinawan Sweet Potato, Steamed Vegetables

Dinner was a different ball of wax.

Branch near home ran out of food (each branch has different daily menus). Wha? Wah!

I was originally gonna title the post Times 2 but the “out of food” situation kinda threw a monkey wrench into the plan, or is it Murphey’s Law?

Luckily, the nearby Zippy’s saved the food day.


Not nearly as cheap, and no drink included, but turkey is turkey.

Turkey Plate, All Tossed Salad

The Mouse did some “modifications” at home.

Add Tomato and Okinawan Sweet Potato

The day sorta turned out okay.

What adventure will today be?

Enjoy. Eat well.

Started with this.


We have sooooo much tea at home, time to start thinning the inventory. The Cat’s connections think we drink tea in SPAM land like they drink tea at home.

Tea Leaves

With tea, the normal breakfast sandwich, or toast for that matter, wouldn’t quite fit. So …

SPAM Onigiri and Japanese Rolled Omelet

The portable version of SPAM and eggs. Hee hee.

Then, boss #2 (think Star Trek: The Next Generation) brings in dim sum.

Dim Sum

Steamed dumplings, pork hash, fried seaweed and shrimp. Perfect with tea. Hee hee #2.

Another “portable version”. Hee hee #2.

The Mouse ate the dim sum plate for lunch, thank goodness for office microwaves. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat had a spur of the moment inspiration to meet the double-hulled canoe, Hōkūleʻa, return from its three year around the world voyage.


In all, including the Hōkūleʻa, there were eight double-hulled canoes that joined in the procession.


Six from Hawai‘i, one from the Marshall Islands, and one from Tahiti.

After watching the canoes come in, The Cat and The Mouse were hot and sticky.

Breakfast needed to be cool and refreshing.

Açaí Bowl

From the Nordstrom ice cream shop.

After that, The Cat went off to finish some things at the office.

The Catʻs lunch.

Fruit Plate


Salami, Tomato, and Poached Egg on Toast

The Mouse went off to Walmart for a few things.

The Mouseʻs lunch, near Walmart, at the 808 Sheridan Center.


New-ish ramen joint.

Wall Decoration

The Mouse ordered one of their combos, to try a little bit of this and that.

Mini Miso Ramen


Mini Chicken Katsu Curry Rice


Four Piece Gyoza

Portions were pretty substantial, taste, very decent (nothing wow, but nothing to complain about). If in the area, may return.

Over carbed? Maybe just a little bit. But they were all “brown”. (Sheepish grin).

Ran some “errands”. Washed towels at the laundromat. Our washer doesn’t like towels (bedsheets too for that matter).

While waiting …

SPAM Breakfast

Brown rice, easy over eggs, fried SPAM, whole wheat toast (buttered). Mix the eggs with the rice, SPAM between toast slices. Big nom! Socks not off, but close.

See movie. Wonder Woman. IMHO, more of a hero (like in Greek poems) movie than a “superhero” movie. Definitely, socks off.

“Late” lunch. After the movie.

Ko‘olau Drive Inn. Just to try.

Kalua Pork and Cabbage
Lau Lau Combo with Brown Rice

The kalua pork and cabbage, excellently prepared. One of the best. Lau lau was decent (a little too much pork for The Mouse’s taste, but I’m being picky).

After those two “epic” carb loaded meals, dinner was celery sticks. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
