Posts Tagged ‘Acai Bowl’

Early morning, rushed off to get blood test, no food, “fasting” requirement. Picked up on the way home.

Fried Rice Breakfast

The Mouse’s, from the neighborhood grocery store. Fried rice, scrambled eggs, char siu (with an “r”). No kogi bits, but still good. Nom!

Picked up for The Cat.

French Toast

🙂

The Mouse still full from breakfast (it was larger than The Mouse is used to). Just a little “snack”.

“Acai” Bowl

Instead of all acai sorbet, The Mouse got one scoop of acai sorbet, one scoop of strawberry/guava sorbet, and one scoop o Ka‘u orange sorbet. Mmm!

Although The Mouse thinks leaving off the honey next time, too sticky, felt like a glue mouse trap. Hee hee!

Dinner was late, The Mouse on his own. The Cat stuck at her office. After a short nap, The Mouse headed over to the neighborhood chop suey.

Wor Mein

Noodles with vegetables (think deluxe saimin). The Mouse ordered wor won ton mein (noodles, won ton, vegetables). Kitchen forgot to add the won ton. Got to the bottom of the bowl, no won ton. Humph!

I guess in retrospect, the won ton may have been a little heavy for late eating, but stil … Sigh!

Kitty karry-out (Mr. Caswell‘s inventive wordplay, not The Mouse’s). was steamed buns and spicy eggplant. Too messy for picture.

So, an almost perfect (but still okay) day for The Mouse.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat had a spur of the moment inspiration to meet the double-hulled canoe, Hōkūleʻa, return from its three year around the world voyage.

Hōkūleʻa

In all, including the Hōkūleʻa, there were eight double-hulled canoes that joined in the procession.

Nāmāhoe

Six from Hawai‘i, one from the Marshall Islands, and one from Tahiti.

After watching the canoes come in, The Cat and The Mouse were hot and sticky.

Breakfast needed to be cool and refreshing.

Açaí Bowl

From the Nordstrom ice cream shop.

After that, The Cat went off to finish some things at the office.

The Catʻs lunch.

Fruit Plate

 

Salami, Tomato, and Poached Egg on Toast

The Mouse went off to Walmart for a few things.

The Mouse ordered one of their combos, to try a little bit of this and that.

Mini Miso Ramen

 

Mini Chicken Katsu Curry Rice

 

Four Piece Gyoza

Portions were pretty substantial, taste, very decent (nothing wow, but nothing to complain about). If in the area, may return.

Can you guess where?

Yup. Waikiki. Hilton Waikiki Prince Kuhio Hotel. Just to chill.

That’s why we could take a night and day picture of Friday night’s dinner spot (see previous post).

The Cat assigned The Mouse to search for eating places.

Breakfast.

For the price, its like we got the glass of bubbly for free. Woohoo.

A definite return place.

Good thing we didn’t have to drive, by the time we finished breakfast, both The Cat and The Mouse were a bit wobbly. Hee hee.

So, for a while, The Mouse has been looking at cars. None of the new cars has caught his eye yet (they all look the same).

I think I found a potential candidate.

And different versions of mochi.

Yesterday, while waiting for my eyes to focus (doctor appointment, dilated pupils), searched out a place to eat and chill, came across a “tea shop”

Tea Shop

And that’s how the staff greets you as you walk in the door.

Did not order “tea”, not really into the milk (lactose issues) and bubble trend. Ordered something hot, and something cold.

Hot Mochi Ball Soup

Not bad, something warm, simple, and chewy.

Cold Açaí Bowl with Fruit

While waiting for The Cat, picked up Korean rice cakes for her dinner.
