Sunday brunch, before The Cat went into her office.

The Cat’s

Her usual. Norwegian salmon breakfast.

The Mouse’s

French toast, unusual for The Mouse to order a sweet breakfast, he was in the mood. 🙂

The Cat worked past dinner, The Mouse picked up a sandwich.

Ham and Pate Bahn Mi

This used to be The Mouse’s favorite, now the sandwich has to share popularity with the newly envisioned hummus, bacon, mushroom, spinach on sourdough and its variations. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Knocked Out”

Friday was a little “uncomfortable”. The Mouse took a prescribed pain killer and went to bed. I guess the painkiller did what it was intended to do. The Mouse was knocked out until mid-morning Saturday.

Lunch was a riff on the sandwich he is currently obsessed with.


Similar ingredients, similar effect. Sourdough bread (should’ve lightly toasted first, next time), hummus, deli ham slices (instead of bacon), shiso leaves (instead of spinach), no mushrooms :(. Still good.

After “lunch”, The Mouse went back to bed, guess he is still in recovery mode. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse picked up one of these yesterday.


Plant-based patty supposedly comparable to a hamburger.


Smelled like a Whopper, kinda looked like a Whopper.

Texture: Bite is softer than the regular burger. In a blind taste, not sure The Mouse could tell the difference, but in an unscientific test, there was a definite difference.

Taste: Kinda tasted like a Whopper? Maybe coulda used a little more salt? Not bad.

Would The Mouse eat another one? Would The Mouse completely switch from the Whopper to the Impossible (not that he eats a lot anyways, maybe two a year?)

So … yes to eating another one (wasn’t bad, just no socks were knocked off during the eats), and no to completely switching to the Impossible. In fact, since the Impossible is a little more than the regular? and that The Mouse is pake? He probably will stick to the regular, price-wise. Hee hee.

But gotta try try. 🙂

P.S. The Mouse thinks if he is gonna eat “vegetarian”? That hummus/bacon sandwich would be his choice. \ooo/

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse really can’t knock hospital food, granted, not gourmet, but serves a higher purpose. Help patients recover. But, on the last day of The Mouse’s hospital stay, he kinda got a little crazy (once a foodie always a foodie right?). Kitchen has a option of building own sandwich. The Mouse was on a soft food diet for a couple of days, very little meat protein (or protein at all).

The Mouse went for it. The concierge taking the order questioned it, and the server delivering the tray questioned it but to The Mouse, it was a happy discovery.

Vegetable Soup, Cranberry Juice, Sandwich

Hummus on sourdough bread, spinach, mushrooms, and the kicker, bacon. It was awesome!

The Mouse thinks sourdough was the right choice, a whole grain might be conflicting. Just an opinion.

Stratification View

The bacon crispy and crumpled (just the way The Mouse likes it, easier to bite), could’ve use a bit more spinach and mushrooms, the hummus, holding everything together as well as providing a healthier substitute for mayonnaise.

If there is ever a chance to order this combo sandwich again? In a heartbeat.

So for an update, the last patient goal to indicate the body is getting back to normal (see previous post), check (this morning (TMI?). 🙂

The Mouse was getting a little concerned and uncomfortable. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Naan Mi?

Disclaimer: The Mouse in now way is trying to misappropriate any cultural heritage in this post. Not meaning to offend anyone in anyway. Just playing with his food.

The Mouse loves certain portions of banh mi sandwiches, the pate paste, the pickled turnip and carrot combo, not so much the bread. He used to like the bread, but as he got older, his jaw not as “shark-like” and the crust gets kinda scratchy in the mouth.

The Cat bought another package of mini naan bread from Costco, was on sale. The Mouse likes the naan, soft, easy to bite, easy to chew. Hmm, what about?

The Mouse made a trip to the Wednesday farmers market especially for a container of turnip and carrot pickles. Assembled the ingredient at home.

The Makings “Stuff”

Naan, shiso, pickled veggies, liver spread. The orange and raisin toast bread are dessert.

A slice or two of sliced ham for added support and additional pickles (Wine and Herb) from Picnics from the Vine, and The Mouse is done.

The Mouse’s Naan Mi Sandwich

Extremely nom! Think large bao bun, soft taco, banh mi, naan sandwich, kitchen sink. Hee hee.

Wine and Herb Pickles

The Mouse thinks the only thing missing was the Maggi seasoning sauce. That’s okay, sometimes the sauce, while tasty, can get a bit salty. Ohh, maybe a small shmear of vegemite next time.

Enjoy. Eat well.
