It was Mrs. P’s b-day the other day. Chef made a birthday cake. The Cat requested a slice.

Chef sent over a picture with the caption “here’s your cake”.

Cake

Chef sent over a box the next day.

Shipping Container

Box was large enough to fit a whole cake. The Cat thought chef made another whole cake for her. Silly cat.

Contents

A slice of hazelnut mousse with meringue, whipped cream, coconut, and berries. Already starting to disintegrate. The Cat and her minion ate it in The Cat’s office. Cake would not have survived for The Mouse to taste.

That’s okay. The Mouse had a beer.

Ginger Beer

Less drama and trauma. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not really, but, he is pretty compelling. Check out the commercial.

The Cat brought home a sample bottle from the food bank fund raiser she attended.

Bottle

Pretty good. Better than diet soda.

The Mouse doesn’t usually like coconut, but this is an exception.

The other drinks The Mouse is currently “researching” is ginger beer and ginger ale.

According to the food enthusiast co-worker, ginger beer is naturally carbonated through fermentation, ginger beer is mechanically carbonated.

Besides the current favorite, Bundaberg ginger beer, discovered a new favorite.

Ginger Ale

The drink is unfiltered. There are pieces of ginger in the bottle. Marketing ploy? Dunno, tastes good though.

So, what’s your favorite drink?

Enjoy. Eat (and drink) well. 🙂

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.
