One of the mochi from last week.


Filled with red bean, pretty normal, but here’s the kicker, mochi was studded with ume! Awesome! Think asian flavored sea salt caramel. It’s that good. Maybe even better! 🙂

I know, Christmas still days away, but The Mouse bought little somethings for himself (and the kitchen).

Wood Composite Spatula, Folding Knife

The Mouse has been wanting to try one of the wood composite utensils for a while. The cheapo wooden utensil we usually buy gets beaten up pretty fast.

Oftentimes when The Mouse attends gatherings/potlucks/parties, he ends up helping prep or “food service”. Not that he minds but sometimes a small knife is needed and none to be found. The Mouse picked up an inexpensive Kershaw to use as a carry “prep” knife. Just so happens Kershaw is connected with Kai knives who produce the Shun line of knives. Just another useless trival tidbit roaming around in The Mouse’s head. Hee hee.

Jury still out about the knife. Definitely usable. But perfect? Not sure yet.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Taking a Break

Santa that is.

Jet Lag?

Or reindeer lag? The Mouse is sure traveling to SPAM Land was a long haul. Have a cookie and get ready for the Christmas rush. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Driving home after work.

Double Rainbow

Mind started playing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, the Judy Garland version, not the Iz version. Hee hee.

Don’t get me wrong, The Mouse loves the Iz version, just it wasn’t playing in my head at the moment.

Picked up on the way.


Ume and wakame, edamame and seaweed. Thoughts wander over to Zatoichi.

Zatoichi and Judy Garland soundtrack. Told ya weird. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lunches this week. Okra and natto. No pictures, too slimey. The Mouse like he was in a Ghostbusters movie (original, not remake).

Trying to decide if a Costco hot dog or banh mi sandwich is in the immediate future for The Mouse’s dinner tonight. 🙂

Have a great weekend.

C’mon people, isn’t there enough real crises in the world? Now you have to fabricate drama? Sheesh.


Whomever made the “human error” better get their head on straight.

The Mouse just ranting.
