Birthday brunch, not The Cat’s nor The Mouse’s. 🙂

View

Starter

Petite apple cinnamon scone and house-made yogurt (coconut milk yogurt for The Mouse) with banana and Manoa honey.

The Cat’s Appetizer

Blue crab cake, saffron aioli, grilled pineapple, arugula. The Cat liked.

The Mouse’s Appetizer

Mediterranean style lamb salad, caper lemon vinaigrette, creamy ranch dressing, roasted lamb, Big Island Hirabara greens, artichokes, Spanish almonds, Kalamata olives, orange, Feta cheese, roasted bell pepper.

Ranks up their with the restaurant’s tableside Caesar salad. Mmm!

Good job Chef H!

Part II tomorrow.

Be safe and well.

Cacao = Chocolate?

The Mouse bought a jar of locally harvested honey with cacao nibs.

Jar

The Mouse tried the honey on a toasted frozen waffle.

Waffle, Devonshire Cream, Honey with Cacao Nibs

The Mouse mistakenly thought the cacao nibs would be chocolate-ty. The nibs were kinda crunchy, and in The Mouse’s opinion, not in a pleasant way. Also, the nibs were a little too bitter in taste, again, The Mouse’s opinion. Not flat out objectionable, but try once is enough. 🙂

p.s. The Mouse also picked up a jar of honey with rum, hopefully it is better, will let you know.

Stay safe and well.

Road Trip

And buying local. One of The Cat’s favorite afternoon “pick-me-ups”, chocolate covered coffee beans. So far, the only place we’ve found them was at the source, the old Waialua Sugar Mill. So, a road trip.

Objective

The Cat also picked up roasted cocoa beans, to try try.

The Mouse, in looking for other points of interest (since the outing was a “road trip”) found Manoa Honey, makers of local honey and mead. Alas the close on Sundays and Mondays. Excuse for another road trip in relative near future. Luckily the sugar mill carried a sampling of their honeys, no mead.

Honeys

The honey and cacao nib should be interesting. The Mouse will let you know later.

Stay safe and well.

Nothing epic, maybe weird, just The Mouse eats.

Honey Covered Banana

The Mouse wanted something sweet for breakfast. Too bad he doesn’t have a kitchen torch. Hee hee.

Chocolate Covered Mac Nuts

Afternoon snack. The Mouse buys only these candies in the individual two pack. One at a time. A whole box would be disastrous. 😉

Rice with Mushroom Gravy

Dinner. Small-kid time comfort food. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Salty Sweet

The Mouse has not done a braise in a while. Too humid for soup. Nice package of pork ribs (cut for sweet sour) at the store.

Pork Ribs

After the initial parboil wash, braise for about an hour in water and apple cider vinegar. Added miso, sake, fresh ginger, and raw honey and braised for another 1/2 hour.

Miso, Sake, and Honey Braised Pork Ribs

The ribs came out tasty and tender, the sauce over rice or mashed potatoes, awesome.

Flavor kinda “teriyaki-ish”, more earthy, funky (fermented in a good way).

Stay safe and well.
