Chef H sent us home with some “stuff”.

Seafood Pasta Salad

Great for lunch the next day. One of the best pasta salads, crab meat, shrimp, scallops. 🙂

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries


Now, The auditor portion of The Mouse’s brain is thinking since the restaurant will be starting renovations soon, we are helping Chef H clear out his refridge. Hee hee.

The eater portion of The Mouse’s brain (which is a much larger portion) is thinking “food”!

In any case, nice of Chef to send us home with goodies.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Epic Lunch

Opps! Forgot to hit the publish button. Face palm!

Although campus closed half day yesterday, The Mouse did too much running around, mostly sitting in traffic. Bleh.

Late lunch. Ruby Tuesday. Meatloaf special.

With salad bar.

The Mouse’s Salad

All his favorite, broccoli, salsa, cucumber, corn, mushroom, and bacon of course. 🙂

Then the centerpiece of the lunch.


With a naked baked potato.

Meatloaf, one of The Mouse’s favorite comfort foods. Just don’t get to have it too often.

This version was heated in a cast iron skillet resulting in a lot of kogi bits. Yay! Brown gravy was perfect. The Mouse added a little accouterment to the potato.

Bacon from the salad bar

Jus’ because. Hee hee.


Also from the salad bar. ‘Cuz in The Mouse’s opinion ‘shrooms and beef (and gravy) match made in heaven. Hee hee.

Ended the epic lunch with some fruit, still from the salad bar.

Okay, back to last chance holiday shopping.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A break in Sunday’s routine. Went over the mountain to town, Waikiki specifically for an errand. Normally, The Cat and The Mouse stay home side and don’t go over the mountain on Sunday’s (have to do it on weekdays for work).

A last minute left turn “detour” to Hawai‘i’s Favorite Kitchens.


From their website:

Hawaii’s Favorite Kitchens is a one-stop shop that has something for everyone! There is a wide a variety of local Hawaii food and product vendors, comprised of Poke Stop, Mikes Huli Chicken, KC Drive Inn, Shimazu Shave Ice, Hawaii Nostalgia Studio, and Rainbow Drive-In.

The Mouse ate here once before but didn’t think The Cat would. The star must’ve been aligned. The Cat was “starving”, “feed The Cat now!”

After some decision making, The Cat ordered a smoked salmon and tofu salad.

Smoked Salmon and Tofu Salad

Smoked salmon, tofu, watercress, sweet onions, carrot, tomato. Soy dressing.

Thinking the salad would be a side dish (no picture menu and “cheap” price), The Cat also ordered a chocolate peanut butter milk shake (KC Drive Inn). (No picture). The Cat’s total order. Just over eleven bucks. Cheap eats.

The Mouse ordered the “sampler”.

Hawai‘i’s Favorite Kitchens Mixed Plate

Brown rice, steamed vegetables, ahi limu poke, Mike’s chicken, BBQ pork. The Mouse nommed. 🙂

And the kicker? The Cat would return. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
