Not much happening food-wise. Last night dinner. Thrown together whatever fit on the plate.

The Mouse Dinner

Leftover burger from Ruby Tuesday, pickles from Picnics from the Vine, frozen vegetables, orange, peanut butter sandwich. The Mouse liked. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mid-week farmers market to buy bread. Didn’t exactly have the type The Mouse wanted so “settled”. Sigh.

And since The Mouse was there …

A quick stop at Ruby Tuesday. Hee hee.

Classic Burger

Medium rare. One of The Mouse’s “usual”.

And … being “pake”, gotta make two meals out of one. Hee hee.

So … first meal is what the server called the “salad” sandwich.

Modified

Burger for later, left side untouched, right side loaded up with mushrooms and bacon from the salad bar. 🙂

Next night, bread (from the farmers market), the burger, schmear of Vegemite, Dijon mustard, and pickles from Picnics from the Vine (farmers market vendor), and shiso leaves.

The Mouse’s “Burger”

Probably the last shiso leaves of the season. 😦

In The Mouse’s humble opinion, the second burger was better than any commercial combination. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Plain and Simple

Sometimes, plain and simple is good.

My sorta consistent Sunday lunch from Ruby Tuesday after Sunday farmer’s market at the mall.

Classic Burger with Fries

So, The Mouse’s regular routine would be add on and fill up on the salad bar, eat the fries (‘cuz in The Mouse’s opinion, leftover fries are eck), take home the burger for later (leftover burgers are the bomb!).

This week, the burger was extra juicy and the bun got super soggy. Not good for leftover. The Mouse took out the burger, ate the rest of the sandwich (veggie sandwich), and too home only the patty.

Picke up a “fresh” bun from the grocery store.

Bun

The Mouse was hoping to find a sesame seed or pretzel bun, no such luck.

Pop the patty a few minutes in the toaster oven to “warm”, not cook.

A spread of Vegemite (thanks Yummy Lummy!), a shiso leaf, and voila!

Burger, Mouse Style

The Vegemite adds umami, like teri sauce, but not as sweet, and not as messy. The shiso leaf gives The Mouse the impression he is eating his vegetables. Hee hee.

No need fancy sauces, gourmet accouterments, plain and simple. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinatown Eats

Last Saturday. Smith and Kings. A play on their location. One of the “new” businesses revitalizing the neighborhood. Intrigued by their brunch burger.

Brunch Burger

Bacon Jam, Mixed Greens, Cheddar, Truffle Aioli, Sunny Egg, Deep Fried French Toast Bun. Breakfast Potatoes, or House Grits.

Not bad, Half sock off maybe? Too many things going on. Bacon jam was more like crumbled bacon than jam. But good to try.

Also tried a side of roasted pork belly.

Roasted Pork Belly

Now, you may ask why, when Nam Fong (famous for their Chinese roast pork) is but a few steps away, would The Mouse want to order pork belly? Try try.

The verdict on the pork belly. It’s not Chinese roast pork, but, a very very good attempt at treating pork belly as it should be cooked. Well prepared. The Mouse would definitely order again.

Enjoy. Eat well.
