A Bread (End) Tale

The time The Mouse ate at the last pie/coffee shop on the other side of the island, The Mouse sat at the counter. They serve a lot of toast, commercial-sized loaves. The Mouse watched the servers toss the loaf ends away.

Server explained customers didn’t want bread end toast. The Mouse asked if he could take some. Server accommodated with a few. 🙂

Bread Ends

While The Mouse understands the restaurant policy, he wished he lived closer, he wouldn’t mind making a couple of trips a week to collect bread ends.

The bread is tasty with good texture too. Sigh.

Changing subject, a couple of The Cat’s clients like to drop off food stuff during tax season.

Avocados, Honey


Be safe, eat good.

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



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.


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.


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.


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.
