Posts Tagged ‘Eggs Benedict’

Lately, whenever we eat at Ruby Tuesday, The Mouse’s order is the same, three sides (spaghetti squash, broccoli, and zucchini) with salad bar.

Plate #1

Mushrooms, broccoli, French dressing, bacon. 🙂

Plate #3

Plate #3

Similar to plate #1. Plate #2 was different, potato salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, fruit, but The Mouse forgot to take a picture. Was really into the mushrooms and broccoli Sunday.

There’s a very pake reason for being a creature of habit, The Mouse can eat his fill on the salad bar and take the vegetables home for lunch the next day. Two meals! Plus, the order is one of the cheaper dishes on the menu that includes the salad bar. Ka-chang! Hee hee!

The Cat was more up to trying something new.

Can’t find description on-line (“what does ATM mean???), but, it was vegetarian with avocado, tomato, and mushrooms (if I had to guess).

We arrived just between breakfast and lunch. The Cat ordered breakfast, The Mouse ordered “lunch”. Perfect.

Hope you had a happy Valentine’s day (if you are so inclined).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Overslept today (has nothing to do with the post, jus’ sayin’).

Tried two places this weekend that uses paper plates. Nothing wrong with paper plates, just felt (at least at one place), a little too, uhm, casual?

First place, Koa Cafe, new “kid” on the block of the Koa Pancake House chain (http://www.koacafe.com). Word is the parents retired and the son is updating the brand.

Pork was offered, pork was ordered.

Vinha D’alhos & Spinach topped with Bacon Hollandaise. Yum! Socks off. Anything with pork and bacon …. hee hee. I was a little concerned about the Vinha D’alhos, the last time I ordered it at another place, it was too vinegar-y for me.

Too bad it was served on a paper plate. 😦

Sauce and yolk kinda got lost in the paper fibers. Sigh. Maybe, if I return, I’ll bring my own Corelle plate.

Lunch after farmers market today, Cajun King (http://www.cajunking808.com/menu.html), “around the corner”. Kinda a “crab boil” place that’s trending here now (Chinese owners, I think). No “crab boil” for The Cat and The Mouse today, more like Chinese food, with a little  shrimp truck on the side.

Stir-Fried String Beans with Garlic

Pretty awesome, done well, seasoned perfectly. Definitely order again.

Spicy Eggplant

Ordered mild. Not bad, pretty good. Very adequate.

Sausage

Portuguese sausage. I was expecting Andouille maybe Boudin sausage being that the restaurant is “Cajun”, but at least it wast tasty.

Before I forget …

See … paper (or foam) plates. Now, I understand that these “Cajun” restaurants are “down and dirty” eating styles (tablecloth is butcher paper). But … hee hee.

The Cat's Plate

Shrimp truck shrimp and pork chop lunch combo with fried rice. The pork chop … excellent, the shrimp, slightly over done, and the fried rice … sorry, Kin Wah is much better. But both the shrimp and rice were more than edible. 🙂

Our paper plate weekend adventures.

Enjoy. Eat well.
