The Cat came home early the other night. The Mouse scrambled to fix dinner, usually, The Cat hunts for food outside or brings extra home food.

The Mouse dug into the pantry.

Forgot, Panda Express doesn’t have pork on its menu. Ugh!

Since I was there … and had an appointment to get to …

Kid’s Meal

Perfectly proportioned.

Inside Box

A little rice, some vegetable, and sweetfire chicken. Plus a cookie (chocolate chunk) and a small drink.

Not pork, but the chicken did have the sweet, sour, spicy taste The Mouse was craving. And no, the search continues for sweet sour pork.

Late dinner after part-time work. The Cat was stuck in the office, left over lunch for dinner. The Mouse almost made it back the neighborhood hole-in-the-wall for the sweet sour pork, but missed closing “by that much”. Sigh.

Next door to the chop suey standby. On second thought the pork would’ve probably been a bit heavy for late dinner.


And a bowl of rice. Perfect for late night, filling but not heavy.

The jai, while no comparison to Aunty M’s version, was adequately acceptable. Nice amount of fermented bean curd, fungus, mushrooms, and fresh veggies. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

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.

Açaí Bowl

A nom kinda day.

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

Enjoy. Eat well.
