Soup ‘n Salad

Back at Happy Valley Pasta & Pizza (across the street from the church). Intrigued about their carrot and onion salad. Since I was there (take-out), thought I might as well try the minestrone soup too.

Happy Valley Pasta $ Pizza Minestrone Soup

Happy Valley Pasta $ Pizza Minestrone Soup

Tomato based soup with Bacon, Carrots, Onions, Celery, and Cabbage. It was ok, more like what The Cat calls “Russian soup”. The bacon was a nice touch (although there could have been more), two important ingredients were missing (in my opinion), pasta and beans. Probably not a repeat.

The restaurant redeemed itself with this.

Carrot & Onion Salad

Carrot & Onion Salad

Julienned Carrots and Sliced Onion marinated in our Homemade Sauce. Omgomgomg! This is awesome! Fresh pickles! I know, a contradiction, but that’s my description. The salad would be great with braised pork belly, local manapua (char siu or lup cheong), a kobe steak, you get the idea. Socks off, most definitely order again. And with capers too!

Except next time, I think order to take home and pair it with any (or all) of the above rich meats. Major drool!

Funny, the restaurant marked their soup as recommended and the salad wasn’t marked. Oh well, to each their own.

Braised pork belly, manapua, kobe steak, carrot and onion salad … and fried rice, that would be a meal. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The plan was The Cat was supposed to meet our writer friend (M) for lunch, Vietnamese food. His car breaks down and they end up at Teddy’s Bigger Burgers. Not one of The Cat’s favorite food genre (I know, probably misused the word, but kinda fit :) ).

She ended up ordering a salad.

Disregard the burger in the background, that’s belongs to M.

A “better” view.

Very thick, almost had to eat it with a spoon, brain freeze. Slurp.

The Mouse brought lunch from home (that’s a switch).

SPAM, Egg, and Bacon Musubi

SPAM, Egg, and Bacon Musubi

Let me repeat. SPAM, Egg, and Bacon Musubi. Can it get any better (well, the bacon wasn’t crispy, it was sitting for a while, not complaining, jus’ sayin’).

Happy Mouse.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Prelude

To the anticipated Japanese dinner (we’re such a tease).

Butter Roll

The Cat’s breakfast, butter roll, from Mr. Donut. Kinda looks like a curled up sleeping cat.

The Cat's Lunch

The Cat’s Lunch

Udon salad. Cold udon, vegetables. The Cat asked for a side of udon broth (salad was too cold).

The Mouse's Lunch

The Mouse’s Lunch

Side salad, side orders of hapa rice, tuna mac salad, and South Shore Grill Slaw. except for the tuna, almost vegetarian.

Getting the photos of the Japanese dinner together. If not tomorrow, soon.

Enjoy. Eat well.

And soup, and mud pie.

Weather has been hot, humid, and sticky. The Cat was in the mood for salad, coincidentally, The Mouse too.

Salad!

Salad!

The top was salad from a chain store salad bar. Must have adjusted for local tastes, amongst the choices, tofu salad and kimchi. Hee hee. Don’t even remember all of the ingredients I tossed in. The bottom plates from Ruby Tuesday salad bar on our side of the island. We still have a number of gift cards purchased from Costco (long story).

More Salad, Soup, and Mud Pie

More Salad, Soup, and Mud Pie

The Cat’s Ruby Tuesday salad bar selection, The Mouse’s Chicken Tortilla Soup (Yum!), and The Cat’s Mud Pie. I think The Cat chooses Ruby Tuesday for the Mud Pie.

Enjoy. Eat well.
