Christmas “brunch” with Aunty M and The Cat’s mother. Putting everything into perspective … I think only Chinese people would intentionally choose Chinese food for a Christmas meal (BTW, if you didn’t already know this, I’m Chinese). Sigh. Hee hee.

Actually, the green tea fried mochi ball and the shredded taro cake was different and interesting. It’s all about getting together with family anyways.

How was your Christmas meal(s)? Anything exciting?

Hope Santa brought what was on your list.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Happy Turkey Day

Due to a snafu in logistics, The Mouse got to spend turkey day by himself. Lunch at the local chain “diner/coffee shop”.

Zippy's

Zippy’s

The Cat and our cuz B are probably going to gag, but I like Zippy’s, can always find something to eat. In fact, I consider their menu a part of the “Hawaii Regional Cuisine” movement. Not  the use of locally sourced ingredients part, the representing of the many cultural influences part that kind of makes our food a “melting pot” part. But that’s just me.

Anyway, my food.

Vegetarian Chili with Brown Rice

Vegetarian Chili with Brown Rice

In my opinion, one of the best chili made here. Not talking about “authenticity” (rumor has it one of  the ingredients is mayonnaise), but tasty “local” fare. Plus there’s corn and mushrooms in the chili.

Roast Turkey Plate with Mashed Potato

I think the mash potato was “real”, it was “lumpy” (I happen to like “lumpy” mash potato).

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

Nothing fancy, straight from the can (a good  thing).

Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

If you look closely, there’s a thin layer of chocolate between the crust and filling, nice touch.

I’ll post what The Cat had for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. It’s kinda a good thing about the schedule mix-up (for Thanksgiving anyway).

Hope your holiday was a good one (if you celebrate).

Enjoy. Eat well.
