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.

Butter Rolls

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.

Culling the pantry (just keeping it under control).


Maybe from the 1950’s? Canned spinach, canned tuna, fresh tomato. Problem with buying in bulk? Buying in bulk. The tuna is packed in water. Not the end of the world … 😉

The Mouse prefers oil. Have a few more cans in the pantry to finish. Sigh.

Stay safe and well.

From Costco, The Mouse’s lunch.

Quinoa Salad

Quinoa, cucumber, tomato, parsley, oil and vinegar dressing (The Mouse guesses), mung beans. The Mouse added capers with a little of the brine. Mmm, pretty healthy The Mouse thinks. 🙂

The Mouse made the mistake of going to Costco on an empty stomach. Hee. Had to consciously retrain.

The Cat and The Mouse going hunting for ma-po tofu, The Cat’s been jonesing for weeks. Let you know if we succeed.

Stay safe and well.

Just cleaning out the pantry/refridge. A portion or two of dried macaroni, a can of tuna, frozen peas. No recipe throw together.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Dressed with olive oil, Worcestershire Sauce (just a dash), salt and pepper. Served chilled (or room temperature) Too bad The Mouse had no lemon on hand, otherwise a squeeze of lemon. The Mouse liked. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
