Not Moscow, Just the Mule

Exploring ginger beer lately. The Mouse does like ginger ale, but never had ginger beer. One of the cousins likes so does the campus receptionist (in office where The Mouse works).

Picked up one to try try.

Bottle

Not bad, less carbonation than ginger ale, stronger ginger flavor.

Still like ginger ale too!

Just learned what a Moscow Mule is. Tonight, no vodka nor lemon juice. Must do more research. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse Forgot

Sunday dinner at a wine bar. Forgot to post the wine.

That’s all I know. It’s The Cat that wants to become a sommelier. The Mouse is just the DD (no, not the Matt Murdock variety, more the Jeeves/Alfred variety). Jus’ in case you’re scratching your head, “designated driver”.

Enjoy. Drink well.

Chinese-Mexican? (Sorta?)

In the land of SPAM (and SPAM musubi), Japanese-European bakeries, and fusion menus, not much surprises us food-wise. Even Chinese-Mexican.

One of our go-to places AJ’s Chinese Fast Food is now offering “Mexican” choices. At the suggestion of the chef, ordered a fish burrito.

Fish, slaw, beans, no rice, and no cheese (by request). since I don’t really have a reference to compare with, I thought it was pretty good. Enough spice to be noticed, but not smoke in the ears spicy. There’s some other offerings I would be willing to try later (shredded pork torta for example).

Washed the burrito down with a smoothie.

Powdered, not fresh, went well with the burrito.

What’s next? Chinese-Korean-Mexican? Hmmm.

BTW, got a new job, submitting resignation to the church today. Happy New Year! (The smoothie was part of the celebration)

No more work on Sundays! 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Okay, maybe not wordless, just weird (except for the SPAM musubi). 🙂

Happy Hump Day! 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Try Try Tuesday

Just a couple of items in our kitchen, just to try.

Instant Ginger Tea

Package

Add Hot Water

Instant Ginger Tea (Sweetened)

Just add hot water.

Uhm … too sweet for my taste. Not much ginger kick. Think I’ll pass.

Preserved Olive Leaves in Olive Oil

Salty, “ferment-y”, “pesto-y”. Would be tasty on pasta, hot rice, or even toast (in a Vegemite sorta way). This one’s a keeper.

To borrow from a credit card ad … “What’s in your kitchen?” 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
