“Poke” Another Way

Over the weekend, tried something “new-ish” at the mall.

Storefront

Poke, made-to-order. Uhm okay, try try.

Pick a base, a protein, a sauce, and various accouterments to your taste.

I went with a small salad, salmon, wasabi, tobiko roe, furikake, and avocado.

The Mouse’s “Box”

On the plus side, everything is “fresh”. On the down side, everything is “fresh”. The flavors did not get a chance to combine and meld.

Sorry, I think I prefer the fresh made daily, pre-mixed poke style, but to each their own. Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Was in the mood for banh mi yesterday, did not have the right ingredients. The farmers market, where there are usually items like bread and pickled vegetables, “not a drop to drink”. Sigh. Tried to “work around”.

“Deconstructed” “Banh Mi”

Mini ciabatta, green papaya salad, smoked meat (pork). Banana.

Not the right bread, papaya salad was not texturally correct, banana, fresh, not lumpia, smoked meat was the only saving factor.

Oh well, win some …

Food was ok, not what I was in the mood for. The hunt is on.

Eat well.

Prepping for Tomorrow

The Cat has an old mentor coming into town. The mentor loves Japanese food, especially ikura. Reservations for Sushi Izakaya Gaku tomorrow night. Yippee! The Cat talks and eats, The Mouse orders food and eats, the mentor eats.

Since izakaya menu not necessarily a lot of vegetables, I thought I’d bank today.

Salad(s)

Salad(s)

Mushrooms, marinated Asian salad (beansprouts, asparagus, carrots), tossed salad with chicken and charsiu.

Okay, The Mouse is ready for izakaya!

Hee hee! Clap clap!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not much happened over the weekend. Farmer’s market, grocery shopping, Ruby Tuesday, etc. No funny soup this week, taking a break.

Opted for a cauliflower salad for lunch (from the grocery store deli).

Manic Sunday

Sigh! Looks like operator error again. Did not hit the publish button.

Coffee and “donuts” while waiting for the laundry at the laundromat.

"Donuts"

“Donuts”

Saved several for today.

Besides the normal bananas, papayas, and the occasional avocado from the farmers market, picked up a couple of packages of nuts.

Furikake and Wasabi Almonds

Furikake and Wasabi Almonds

New vendor at the market. Nuts for “favors” for yesterday’s lunch, and one for The Cat to try.

Lunch with former co-workers (most of them retired).

We’ve known each other for at least three decades!

Complimentary Chicken Broth

It was a toss up between the applewood salmon salad and the fennel seared ahi salad. The server recommended the ahi.

Seared Ahi Salad

Seared Ahi Salad

Baby green beans, fingerling potatoes, orange, frisee, red wine vinaigrette, nicoise olive aioli. Nicely composed and very tasty.

Dessert was simple.

Happy Halloween!
