New-ish cafe/bistro in grocery store – Et Al (that’s the name of the eating place, go figure). The main dishes were alright, the appetizers were worth eating again.

Ludovico chicken liver mousse, strawberry
tomato jam, grilled sourdough.

The Mouse really liked the chicken liver. Good substitute for foie gras (The Mouse’s opinion). Definite order again, next time with more toast. Hee hee.

Little gem lettuces, smoked salmon,
pickled red onion, everything spice

The kitchen was kind enough to substitute the caper buttermilk dressing for a lemon vinaigrette. Another order again item.

Hawaiian clam chowder, ulu, smoked meat,
clams, grilled sourdough.

The Cat’s soup. Clams so fresh. The Cat liked.

Stay safe and well.

Hospital food. The Mouse had to wait between getting injected with dye and getting scanned.

Tuna Sandwich and Blueberry Muffin

Not much to say about the meal, hospital food.

Sliced Cucumber

Salt, black pepper, shoyu. Quick salad. Not hospital food. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

A Costco run, lunch nearby Liliha Bakery/Coffee Shop. New owner has kept the favorite old menu items while adding modern fare.

The Mouse ordered old school:

Oh wait, start with their famous grilled butter rolls with nuclear neon jelly.

Ok, now The Mouse’s order:

Roast Pork, Rice, Corn, Mixed Greens

Mmm! Nom! 🙂

The Cat order new school:

Arugula Salad with Grilled Salmon

There was also dried cranberries, strawberries, and almonds on the side. The Cat would order again. 🙂

On the way out, The Mouse noticed bakery is selling bottles of the jelly.


The Mouse dunno, could be sith kyber crystals, dilithium crystals, stuff that powers magic wands, heh heh.

The Cat found a new favorite besides oxtail soup. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse thought of something he can make to use the tuna packed in water. Started with a can of mixed vegetables (carrot, lima bean, potato, corn, peas).

Mixed Vegetables

Normally, The Mouse not a fan of canned vegetables, texture feels overcooked, except for spinach (watched Popeye cartoons small-kid time), but an impulse try.

Cooked a handful of elbow macaroni, added the mixed vegetables, drained tuna, mayonnaise, olive oil (to reduce the portion of mayo), dried parsley, turmeric, salt and pepper to taste.

Tuna Salad, The Mouse style

Turned out pretty good. No recipe, throw everything in and pray, hee hee. The canned vegetables were a surprise, might buy again.

Stay safe and well.
