Take-Out Eats

While playing “tourist”.

Spicy Ahi Poke Wrap
Shoyu Ginger Poke
Bowl of Ramen
Chasiu Rice

Because The Mouse avoids soup noodles in take-out containers, it’s just not the same.

Lilikoi Mead

Reminded The Mouse of hard apple cider, light and refreshing, welcomed after driving/sightseeing all day. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s spaghetti with white clam sauce leftover from The Old Spaghetti Factory.

Kitty Box

Not quite enough for a full meal. The Mouse went to the grocery store.


The Mouse’s favorite no-recipe “throw everything in and pray for the best” cooking.

Clam Chowder Noodles with Vegetables

Mustard cabbage, corn, and asparagus. The Cat slurped. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

From the previous post, The Cat brought home leftover dan dan mein. The Mouse was not going to touch that (channeling MC Hammer, hee hee), too spicy.

The Mouse did try to make the noodles less spicy.

Water (lots), zucchini, angel hair pasta, half of the leftover dan dan noodles at the end, just to warm.

Mild Dan Dan Noodle Bowl

Oh yeah, and half an ajitama egg from the ramen shop at the mall. The Cat said the spice level was much better. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Another saimin day. “Deluxe” frozen saimin.

Frozen Saimin

The Mouse just added a little more “horse power”, hee hee. Bought a package of fish cake, similar to the single slice packaged with the saimin.

Fish Cake

The Mouse learned, the accouterments should be thinly sliced, to accompany the noodles, not over power it.

SPAM and Fish Cake

The Mouse also added more SPAM, well, just because. Hee hee.

Ohh, also added a pinch of dried shrimp and wakame (more umami), and drastically cut down the powdered soup base (too much sodium).

Dried Shrimp

Everyone into the bowl.

The Mouse’s Saimin Deluxe


A perfect pairing would be to have an old fashion hamburger, nothing gourmet, bun, meat, spread. In The Mouse’s old age, the burger was postponed until dinner.

Old School Hamburger Sandwich

The Mouse had a happy food day. 🙂

The Cat also had a good noodle day.

Dan Dan Mein

The Cat forgot to order “mild”, came out spicy. Still good though.

Stay safe and well.

Saimin! :)

Probably The Mouse’s favorite type of noodle, must be from small-kid hanabata time. A quick lunch woud be a package of S&S saimin.

The Mouse’s lunch. Started with a container of Okuhara saimin (the other small-kid hanabata days brand).

Frozen Saimin

The containers are deluxe, notice the slices of luncheon meat (dunno if SPAM), scrambled egg, green onion, and fish cake (kamaboko).

The Mouse further “accessorized” his bowl, more SPAM (roasted in the toaster oven), wakame, okra, mixed vegetables. Instead of the flavor packet, too much salt, The Mouse seasoned with a little salt, black pepper, and low sodium shoyu, that way he controlled the salt content.

The Mouse’s Saimin

Oh yeah, the SPAM was the “lite” version too, less fat and salt.

The Mouse had a happy lunch. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
