Partly cleaning out the refridge.

The Mouse’s lunch did not start out as a “franken” dish, more finishing leftovers. The Cat’s leftover sope. One of the meat managers at the warehouse made spicy tuna, The Mouse couldn’t resist. He figured sope was spicy, spicy tuna was spicy, why not.

Leftover Carnita Sope with Spicy Tuna

Kinda went together, not a perfect fit, but okay.

The Cat’s dinner was really cleaning out the refridge. Coconut milk, leftover pesto bruschetta (bread and all), celery, egg. Throw all together and hope for the best.

Soup

The Cat seemed to like, at least didn’t go eww! Hee hee.

Oh, The Mouse might be unplugged for a few days. Changing computer and turkey stuffing, or is it stuffed mouse.

If on, on, if not on, not on. Stay tuned.

Happy Thanksgiving (if you are so inclined).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Wednesday dinner.

The Place

.

Tri-Color Tomato Appetizer

Tomatoes perfectly ripe.

Cioppino

Daily special, The Cat’s order.

Bruschetta

The Mouse’s order.

Calamari alla Griglia

The Mouse is not a big fan of squid, but the server was singing the praises of their preparation, grilled calamari steak with spicy tomato sauce. The Mouse try try.

Better than most squid dishes, still a bit chewy (squid characteristic).

Panna Cotta

Another daily special, topped with honey. A little too sweet for The Mouse, maybe a little bit of lemon zest on top?

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yesterday was the first day The Cat could sleep in (need to recover from a brutal tax season). Impromptu “hunt” for food. First choice was a 2 hour wait. Nope.

The Cat has always wanted to return to Baci Bistro. Took a chance. One hour wait, unless we were willing to sit at the bar. Go for it.

Sat right in front of the cold prep station (think sitting at the sushi bar).

Produce

Bar, Cold Prep, Kitchen

Super tiny space. One of the chef was even gracious to provide shaka. Hee hee.

Bruschetta

The Mouse thinks one of the better ones he has had in a while.

The Cat’s Risotto con Gamberetti e Piselli

Think Italian jook with shrimp and peas and cream and cheese. The Cat liked.

The Mouse’s Bucatini alla Puttanesca

With extra sauce (The Mouse is a product of public education). Hee hee.

Rustic, earthy, spicy, packed with umami (think Italian Ma Po Tofu, kinda). And the myth behind the recipe is interesting as well.

Yelp had a picture of Key Lime Pie. Wasn’t a dessert selection last night. The Cat sighs.

Chocolate Decadence Cake

The dense part they got right, tasted flourless to The Mouse.

Next time we go back, either make reservations, go earlier, or sit at the bar again. The Mouse wouldn’t mind sitting at the bar again, free kitchen and prep show. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Steak Plate

Neighborhood grocery store, grilled outside, 5 minutes before closing, ran out of sides except for brown rice. The Cat taking the rice in her bento today.

Turkey Burger Sliders

Semi-regular Ruby Tuesday Sunday stop after farmers market. This week The Mouse ate turkey burger sliders, with fries. 🙂

Grilled Farm Bread Bruschetta

Seasonal tomatoes, burrata cheese, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, extra virgin olive oil, micro basil.

The Cat’s lunch.

Have a good week!

Enjoy. Eat well.
