Archive for the ‘Plate Lunch’ Category

One plate, three meals (two for now).

Char Siu, Chicken Lunch Plate

Local chop suey, only available during lunch hours and weekdays only. Way too much food for The Mouse (getting old). Lots of rice, chicken, and greens leftover.

The Mouse made rice soup with a portion of the leftovers for The Cat’s dinner.

Chicken Rice Soup

Better than canned. Hee hee. Just add wakame. Comfort food.

Be safe and well.

Take-out diner up the street from home. The Cat was feeling a little under the weather.

Ma-po Tofu, Chicken Katsu

Dinner for The Cat, dinner for The Mouse, a little bit leftover. 🙂

The diner has a small condiment section with tiny sauce container to mix and match your own. The Mouse mixed catsup, sriracha sauce, A-1 steak sauce, and spicy mustard. Almost taste like Japanese Bulldog sauce. One of The Mouse favorites. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Cat and The Mouse drive to town. Grocery store and bakery visit.

Shoyu Pork Plate Lunch

The Cat’s dinner (2 times) and bento, The Mouse’s dinner. part of four meals. 🙂

Good taste and tender. Grocery kitchen used shoulder instead of belly, less fat, probably cheaper too. Still good.

Next to the grocery store, a bakery run by former employees of a Japanese bakery that closed.

Flaky Roll and Bran Muffin

The Cat ate the roll, The Mouse had the muffin for breakfast today. Mmm.

Be safe and well.

Small-kid time, The Mouse loved gravy over rice. As he grew older, he realized the unhealthiness of the dish. Cut back severely. Still enjoy gravy rice but in moderation and few and far between frequency.

The Mouse thought he was ordering healthy yesterday. Tofu and vegetables over rice from the neighborhood chop suey.

Plate Lunch

Surprise! Lots of gravy, The Mouse was anticipating a simple stir-fry. He was tempted to eat the whole order but resisted. More than half of the rice and a fair bit of the gravy and vegetables were taken out for The Cat’s bento. The Mouse ate the rest. The gravy was not unwelcome, it was enjoyed, just a surprise. And The Mouse has refrained from “gravy rice” for a while. Overall, The Mouse ate mostly healthy. That’s The Mouse’s story and he is sticking with it. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Plate Lunch (and Dinner)

The Cat’s go-to Chinese plate lunch take-out spot has gone downhill. Dunno if it’s the lack of workers, supply chain issues, owner losing interest. Shoulder shrug. But, The Cat located a replacement take-out spot.

Plate Lunch

Rice, noodles, vegetable, boneless fried chicken. Enough for lunch, dinner, and still a little leftover.

The Mouse went to the neighborhood Chinese chop suey.

The Mouse’s Plate Lunch

Char siu, roast chicken, vegetable, rice. Enough for lunch and dinner. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
