A morning trip to the laundromat, to wash towels. Our washer at home is a little skittish when it comes to washing heavier items. Lunch, take out from Panda Express, The Mouse’s new go-to take out (lots of veggies), don’t have to order massive carbs.

The Mouse’s Take Out

Steamed veggies (instead of rice or noodles), broccoli beef, and mushroom chicken (aka moo goo gai pan). The Mouse ate the steamed veggies, the beef, and the zucchini (in the moo goo gai pan). The broccoli (from the broccoli beef) and the chicken and mushrooms went to tomorrow’s bento for The Cat.

After a late afternoon appointment, dinner at the mall (Ruscello in Nordstroms). No immediate seating inside. Weather pretty calm and dry, took seating outside.


The Cat’s

Roma Tomato Basil

The Mouse’s

Steak and Barley Soup


The Cat ate late lunch so went with an “appetizer”.

Grilled Farm Bread Bruschetta

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

Being that The Mouse kinda had a “light” lunch, The Mouse ordered

Grilled Skirt Steak

Roasted asparagus, carrots, yukon gold potatoes, lemon basil vinaigrette. Everything was awesome (socks off), especially the price point. One exception, was the vinaigrette. Asked for catsup (horror or horrors for some) Hee hee.

Instead of ordering dessert in the restaurant, went outside to the Gelato Bar for an açaí bowl.

For those of you that are, hope you had a happy mother’s day.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not a very interesting week food-wise, my apologies.


Microwaved Veggies with Peanut Butter

Still trying to use up that organic jar of peanut butter that is too runny for toast or sandwich. Mixed with mixed veggies, not too bad.

I figure, start out with a mess of vegetables in the morning, less guilt throughout the day. Hee hee.

The office is connected with the campus director of finance and facilities (what a combo). She brings back leftovers whenever she has business meetings.

Breakfast Leftovers

Breakfast burrito, orange, hash brown. The Mouse’s lunch.

Dinner was what was planned for lunch, before the breakfast leftover.

Turkey and Ham on JJ2 Whole Wheat with Shiso Leaf

See, unexciting.

Planning on doing a little bit of exploring for lunch tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat worked late tonight. Plus trying to clear the refrig.

The Cat's Bowl

The Cat’s Bowl

Since The Cat likes “squishy” food, ancient grain “jook”, leftover pork chop, white stem cabbage, dried seaweed.

The Mouse not that enthused with “squishy” food.

The Mouse's Plate

The Mouse’s Plate

Ancient grains, smoked pork, pan charred celery, egg, and white stemmed cabbage garnish.

The Cat and The Mouse each like their respective dishes. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Kinda scary, “children of the night” begin to come out.

Tried a chicken dish couple of months ago at a banquet at Golden Palace in Chinatown. The Cat was impressed. Went back last night for a revisit.

Da Place

Da Place

Some parts of Chinatown is going through a revitalization. Hip and trendy restaurants and bars are opening up attracting the younger crowds. Not at this restaurant and not at the location. But … maybe for the food?

The chicken from the banquet was a special order. Boo! Boss lady offered something similar using free range chicken.

The Chicken

The Chicken

Not sure the cooking nor the seasoning method. Not bad. The Mouse’s pet peeve with Chinese chefs is their fowl carving “modus operandi” – chop and hack (The Cat doesn’t mind, The Mouse on the other hand …). Chicken had good taste, just hard to maneuver around the bones.

The Cat and The Mouse do not live by chicken alone.

Added a “casserole”.

Pig Feet Cassorole

Pig Feet Casserole

Again, pretty tasty, could’ve cooked a little longer for The Mouse’s taste. Overall, not bad, the gravy was awesome.

And a vegetable.

Chinese Broccoli with Garlic

Chinese Broccoli with Garlic

Tempted to order a noodle dish, but with the gravy and all, plain white rice instead.

Steamed Rice

Dishes were “on the bone” more us The Cat’s alley.

The Carnage

The Carnage

The Mouse had to satisfy his sweet tooth after dinner.

Baked Red Bean Bao and Egg Tarts

Baked Red Bean Bao and Egg Tarts

Would we go back? Probably, but maybe next time wear hazmat suits and assault vests (I’m exaggerating of course). Uhm, maybe.

Enjoy. Eat well.
