The Mouse’s schedule has been a little whacked lately, a little moonlighting on the side. bookkeeping at a home office. Kinda eatin’ on the run.

Valentine’s Day Breakfast

Red colored meat. Hee hee.

Frozen saimin with char siu (from the grocery store). No comparison to Chinatown, but a very acceptable substitute.

Happy Meal

Late night grab ‘n’ go. Burger, two bags of apple slices instead of fries, apple juice instead of soda. Not bad for fast food.

The Cat fared better for Valentine’s day, more on that later.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Forgot, Panda Express doesn’t have pork on its menu. Ugh!

Since I was there … and had an appointment to get to …

Kid’s Meal

Perfectly proportioned.

Inside Box

A little rice, some vegetable, and sweetfire chicken. Plus a cookie (chocolate chunk) and a small drink.

Not pork, but the chicken did have the sweet, sour, spicy taste The Mouse was craving. And no, the search continues for sweet sour pork.

Late dinner after part-time work. The Cat was stuck in the office, left over lunch for dinner. The Mouse almost made it back the neighborhood hole-in-the-wall for the sweet sour pork, but missed closing “by that much”. Sigh.

Next door to the chop suey standby. On second thought the pork would’ve probably been a bit heavy for late dinner.


And a bowl of rice. Perfect for late night, filling but not heavy.

The jai, while no comparison to Aunty M’s version, was adequately acceptable. Nice amount of fermented bean curd, fungus, mushrooms, and fresh veggies. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Last Sunday, The Cat and The Mouse decided to try something different from Ruby Tuesday. “Newish” Thai in the neighborhood. Kits n Koa.

Pad Thai Noodle

Not bad, The Cat thinks she’s had better.

Chicken Panang Curry

This one was good. A keeper. Not spicy, flavorful.

Bamboo Shoots with Eggs

Not bad for tinned bamboo shoots.

This is where The Mouse really liked the pickled yellow pepper.

Pickled Yellow Peppers

Especially on the noodle.

Tapioca Coconut Milk

With young coconut, The Cat’s dessert.

Steamed Pumpkin Coconut Cream with Sticky Rice

The Mouse’s dessert. The Mouse liked. Super heavy though. Nap time. 🙂

Kits n Koa made it to the list of restaurants can return to.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Epic Lunch

Opps! Forgot to hit the publish button. Face palm!

Although campus closed half day yesterday, The Mouse did too much running around, mostly sitting in traffic. Bleh.

Late lunch. Ruby Tuesday. Meatloaf special.

With salad bar.

The Mouse’s Salad

All his favorite, broccoli, salsa, cucumber, corn, mushroom, and bacon of course. 🙂

Then the centerpiece of the lunch.


With a naked baked potato.

Meatloaf, one of The Mouse’s favorite comfort foods. Just don’t get to have it too often.

This version was heated in a cast iron skillet resulting in a lot of kogi bits. Yay! Brown gravy was perfect. The Mouse added a little accouterment to the potato.

Bacon from the salad bar

Jus’ because. Hee hee.


Also from the salad bar. ‘Cuz in The Mouse’s opinion ‘shrooms and beef (and gravy) match made in heaven. Hee hee.

Ended the epic lunch with some fruit, still from the salad bar.

Okay, back to last chance holiday shopping.

Enjoy. Eat well.
