The last of the scones.


The Mouse not sure what flavor this was. Maybe vanilla?

Instead of coffee, The Mouse drank cooled (not iced) green tea.


Cheap bag (under four dollars for 50 bags) of green tea bags from Japan, makes the best cool/cold green tea.

Stay safe and well.

Iced Green Tea?

At Yajima-Ya on Sunday, instead of iced water, they served iced green tea. Very refreshing. Server explained tea comes from Japan specifically for iced tea.

The Mouse bought from the grocery store yesterday.

Green Tea

Based on the pictures, this could be used for iced green tea? Maybe a project for The Mouse this weekend. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Oh, and to those who served and are serving, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

White Tea

Last Sunday, ┬áThe Cat took a day trip over to the Big Island to visit a client. One product they’re experimenting with is tea plants grown on volcanic rich soil.

They’re thinking about marketing tea leaves to make white tea. The client gave The Cat a sample packet.

The tea has a fresh “green” taste with a mild mineral aftertaste (must be from the volcanic soil). The leaves are a little more “rustic” than the ones we’ve seen in China. Very pleasant.

This past weekend. Potluck with some friends. They’re big animal protein eaters (aka carnivores), so they prepared …

Grilled Tri-Tip Steak

Baked Salmon, Asian Flavor

The secret to the salmon is a coating of mayonnaise to seal the fish from drying out. I may try this one day.

We contributed a pot of vegetable stew (ratatouille-style).

Vegetable Stew

I know, it’s not pretty (didn’t have time to prepare it in layers like Julia Childs or Remy), just threw everything in a pot with a jar of pasta sauce and simmered. The Cat approved.

We also brought a box of dark chocolate matcha green tea and coffee chocolates from Chef Padovani.


I’ve posted about these before. The coffee bean shaped ones are coffee and the seven-sided ones are the matcha green tea. Did I mention that the matcha green tea chocolates were originally made for Iron Chef Morimoto? I think I did. The initial matcha green tea ingredient came from the Iron Chef himself. I don’t know where the current supply is from.

We ate, we laughed, and we teased. Good times.

Enjoy. Eat well.
