Campus snack bar and cafeteria closed, staff Christmas lunch which The Mouse choose not to attend (long story).

Picked up Char Hung Sut on the way to work.

You Know It’s Fresh

When the staff is making manapua in front of you. Hee hee.

Iconic Box

White box, rubber stamp, plastic tie = Marketing. 🙂

The Mouse’s Lunch

Manapua, pork hash, pepeiau, taro cake, half moon, baked turnip cake. Not photogenic, not gourmet, old school comfort food. Happy Mouse.

Taro Cake Close Up

Black olives, char siu, green onions, dried shrimp. Super old school, nom.

Manapua, Bite View

Nom! Hee hee.

The Cat had her own “special” lunch.

Hot Crab & Artichoke Sandwich

Restaurant announced they will be closing for good soon. The Cat had to get one (or more) of her favorite sandwich before …

Enjoy. Eat well.

All of the components this week, in one sandwich.

The Mouse’s Dindin

The sandwich: whole wheat bread, romaine lettuce, ham slices, mushroom deli slice, SPAM, whole grain mustard, mayo. Banana and orange for balance. 🙂

The first time The Mouse tried the mushroom deli slice, he didn’t get the faux cheese connection. This time, there was a definite fermented funk. Cheese-ish, stink tofu-y, even natto-y aroma and taste. Went well with the other players. Hee hee.

The Cat tasted the mushroom thingy in her own way.

The Cat’s Bowl

Rice porridge, seaweed, soybeans, SPAM slice, mushroom deli slice. The Cat liked.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Ham Sandwich Variation

Found (and bought) this at the grocery store.

Mushroom Something

The Mouse was reluctantly looking at soy “cheese” to add to last night’s ham sandwich when he spotted the mushroom “slices”.

Looked better than the soy alternative. Try try.

Ham Sandwich Variation

Kaiser roll (also picked up from the grocery store), lettuce (hiding under everything), ham, mushroom slice, mayo, whole grain mustard.

A much better alternative than the reluctantly contemplated soy cheese. 🙂

So, you know what’s happening tomorrow don’t ya? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Everything’s better with …

SPAM! (bacon too).

This week, The Mouse’s dindin has been ham sandwiches.

Ham Sandwich

Whole wheat bread from JJ2 Bakery, a smidge of mayo, mustard, Romaine lettuce, ham. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Yesterday, a flash of inspiration. What if The Mouse added SPAM?

But not just SPAM out of the can but fried. Hee hee.

Decanned the SPAM, medium sliced, pan-fried, medium heat until slightly crispy/chewy.

Fried SPAM

Best if there is a little kogi. Hee hee.

Last night’s sandwich.

Ham Sandwich with Fried SPAM

Much better. Not quite bacon, but very very close. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not quite, but very very close, and very tasty.

Picked up at the grocery store.

Char Siu-ed Pork Belly

Made in house. Apparently, the fish department manager has some creative freedom. Decided to make a sandwich.

Buttered Whole Wheat Toast, Tomato, Lettuce

Popped the char siu pork belly in the toaster oven a few minutes … and assembled.

Char Siu Pork Belly, Lettuce, Tomato Sandwich

The Mouse nommed. Dare I say it, might be even better than a regular BLT, jus’ sayin’. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
