Road Trip, Small Kine

The Cat wanted to light a candle at Sunset Beach for her father. Small kine road trip.

The View

Despite windy conditions, we were able to light the candle for a little while.

The Candle

Since we were out there, a little lunch at a gastropub.

Interior

A sample.

Salmon Salad

Grilled salmon, candied walnuts, sliced pear. Veggies! Hee hee.

Shrimp Po’ Boy

Sweet potato fries, avocado, lots of cole slaw. Lots of cole slaw, balance slightly off. Still good though. 🙂

Beer Battered Fish and Chips

Typical gastropub fare. Not bad. Place had malt vinegar, good sign.

Too full, missed out on the pecan bread pudding. Oh well, maybe next road trip.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No Hawaiian plate this week.

Coworker got her hands on a Goteborg sausage from Kauai, and shared some with the office. For some reason which The Mouse does not know yet. A Kauai regional food. I don’t think any other island favors Goteborg sausage as much as Kauai. More research is needed.

Goteborg Sausage

Of course The Mouse had to try. For breakfast. Hee hee.

Sausage went well with the planned breakfast.

Vegemite Toast and Dried Plums

With Earl Grey tea. Director brought back a tea bag variety from her trip to Disneyland. Tea. Not Mickey hats. Sigh.

Finally got to try the “Student Special #1” from St. Louis Drive Inn down the hill from campus. Highly recommended by a coworker from the old job.

Student Special #1

Two burgers, French fries, drink. Six bucks.

Chomp View

Burger, a little sauce, bun. No other accoutrements. Super old school. On the plus side, burger wasn’t drowned in sauce. On the minus side, no lettuce/tomato (at least lettuce). Good to try though.

Another coworker brought in something she didn’t want for the two known food enthusiasts in the office.

Dragonfruit!

Coworker is not a vegetable/fruit eater plus not adventurous in the eating arena. The Mouse offered to cut a piece for her. Nope. That’s okay, The Cat and The Mouse benefit. 🙂

Nom!

Since The Mouse didn’t have lau lau and or kalua pork on Friday, picked up a little “cat food” on the way home. 🙂

Hamachi Poke

And a little “mouse treat” too.

Smoked Salmon Poke

The hamachi poke for dinner, the smoked salmon poke to snack on.

The Cat had lunch at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

Eggplant Parmesan

The Cat brought home a little mousie bag, went into the freezer, probably will end up as part of one of The Cat’s bento next week.

Have a good weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

This past Tuesday, first day back at school for the students. Office buys us lunch with the understanding that we are available (read eat at our desk and don’t leave, except for bathroom). Okay dokey.

Char Siu Pork Sandwich

Char Siu Pork Sandwich

Diamond Head Market and Grill, my old stomping grounds from two years ago. Chinese style, marinated thin slices of pork. Yum.

Fries

Fries

Perfect grazing food. 🙂

I know, not much vegetables, I coulda ordered a salad but it would’ve probably be too messy on the desk.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Roasted Squash Ravioli

Chèvre, spinach, walnut sage pesto.

The Mouse ordered.

Potato Taco

Potato Taco

Garlic mashed potato, pico de gallo, cilantro, crunchy shell, garlic chili sauce, jalapeño. See, still trying to eat more veggies. Kinda hard to go “cold turkey”.

Didn’t get to take pictures of what the rest were having.

Overall, the food was not bad, but, no socks came off.

I think The Cat and The Mouse both felt the food at the little cafe up our street is more to our liking. Better value too.

Oh well, try try. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
