And salad bar. Ruby Tuesday at the mall.


Shrimp Pasta

The Cat’s order.


The Mouse’s order. The Mouse took three-fourths of the patty home. Somehow, the hamburger patty taste better the next day, go figure. 🙂

Weekend Eats

The Cat wanted to shop for a light hoodie. A venture to the mall. Lunch at Nordstrom, Ruscello.

Tomato Basil Soup

Daily Pasta

Butternut squash and Italian ham? The Mouse forgot the description. The Cat thought it was okay. The Mouse played Russian roulette with the leftovers (The Mouse took two lactase pills). The Mouse survived. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered a salad.

Cauliflower Salad

All vegetable, no starch. Salad was very good, just didn’t last too long. The Mouse got hungry soon after.

Be safe, eat good.

Plan “C”

Zia Cafe, new owner (about a year now), new chef (same time). When the changeover happened, The Cat and The Mouse were a little discombobulated. Some staple menu items were dropped, items were added with higher cost. The chef use to run the kitchen at a high-end wine bar, his menu mods kinda reflected his past pedigree. (The Mouse’s opinion).

For dinner, The Cat and The Mouse were heading to the neighborhood Japanese/Pho restaurants (one of our go-to’s) but they closed for the holiday. Sigh.

Plan B, chop suey house. But we were last there last week.

Plan C, a detour. Zia Cafe. Try try, revisit.

Penne Pasta Primavera

Penne Pasta Meat Sauce

Good basic bowls. The Cat and The Mouse’s new strategy for the cafe, stick to the basics, not the fancy stuff.

Highpoint of the dinner was the desserts.

Ube Cookies and Cream Gelato & Strawberry Guava Sorbet

One with dairy, one without, Mmm!

Be safe and well.

The Mouse took a nibble before the picture. Hee hee.

Italian Sausage

The Mouse ordered to try try.

The Cat also brought home her spaghetti with meat sauce leftover.

The Mouse will be eating for lunch. Stay tuned.

Be safe and well.
