Just random shots, cleaning out the phone. 🙂

The View

The Mouse wishes he could say the view at the start of an adventure, seeking treasure, or righting a wrong (hunting hoarding dragons?) but alas, only the drive to work. Hee hee.

Purple Sweet Potato Cheesecake Tart

Two bite sized. Nom.

Vegetables with Hummus

Frozen spinach and frozen okra. Zapped in the micro, topped with hummus. Desk lunch.


Simply sliced, salt and peppered. Dinner.

Purple, green, red. “Taste the rainbow.” Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No food story today.

But driving home yesterday The Mouse’s route followed a rainbow, at the stop lights he saw this.

End of the Rainbow?

Not a pot o’ gold, not a leprechaun (we are approaching St. Patrick’s day after all), but a chop suey house. Too bad the optical illusion, couldn’t directly point to the restaurant, wouldn’t that be amazing? A definite hee hee moment.


Enjoy. Eat well.

Jus’ cleaning out the camera/phone.

Bacalao Salad and Pastele

A try try on the way home. The Mouse liked. Saved one of the pastele for The Cat’s lunch this week.

Char Siu Puff Pastry

Leftover from The Cat’s lunch. 10 minutes in the toaster oven, good to go. Hee hee.

Next, The Mouse’s weird eats, hope co-worker V is not reading. Her leftover spaghetti from lunch she gave to The Mouse.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

The Mouse explains. Small-kid time hanabata days, The Mouse’s first encounter (and ultimate reference point) with spaghetti/pasta was from a can, then at elementary school, baked spaghetti by the awesome cafeteria ladies. There was no such thing as “al dente” and “sauce to complement the pasta” in The Mouse’s food knowledge quiver.

To this day, The Mouse will order pasta at restaurants “cooked past “al dente” and extra sauce.” Just a preference.

So, to “adjust” the spaghetti to The Mouse’s palate, added a can of tomato sauce and cooked the spaghetti just a little more.

The Mouse’s Plate

This was very nom! Thank you V, your leftovers went to good use, in The Mouse’s tummy. Hee hee 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Preserved Citrus

Storefront in Chinatown.


At first, The Mouse thought these were preserved lemons, but the different sizes and shapes got him confused. Maybe different citruses? Dunno.

The Mouse’s grandmother used to salt preserve lemons at home. She had the grandkids haul the jars to the galvanized garage roof. There were many a sizzled toe/sole from the hot metal.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat is still on the tomato soup mend.


Tomato Soup and Yogurt

This time, for variety, The Mouse added a scoop of plain yogurt. The Mouse was looking for some kinda dairy, cream, sour cream was in too much quantity. Half a single serve container of yogurt was the ticket.

The Mouse finally caved.

Li Hing Powder

On sale, a little bit. There’s gonna be some happy canned pineapple and maybe an apple or two in The Mouse’s near future. And a happy mouse too. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
