Museum Eats

The Cat’s lunch. She wanted to see somekinda exhibit and thought today was a free day. Nope, missed it. But since she was already there …

Half turkey sandwich, corn chowder.

Tried to post another topic, but The Mouse couldn’t prep the pictures in time, schedule was kinda kapakahi today. Tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.

We now return to regularly scheduled programming. Whenever the computer updates, The Mouse’s rhythm gets messed up. Even today, Apple is trying to update something. Let’s see if I can get something done.

The Cat had a lunch meeting at Ichiriki, a Japanese nabe restaurant.

Shrimp Appetizer


Raw Materials

Ground chicken, beef rib eye?, and veggies for the hot soup.

The Cat didn’t take a picture of the “final” dish, it was a business meeting after all.

The Mouse stayed home and ate “bachelor style”.

Soy Beans and Fish Steaks in Hot Green Chile



Looks like the computer is still acting a little finicky (iTunes is trying to update something).

Hope you had a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A morning trip to the laundromat, to wash towels. Our washer at home is a little skittish when it comes to washing heavier items. Lunch, take out from Panda Express, The Mouse’s new go-to take out (lots of veggies), don’t have to order massive carbs.

The Mouse’s Take Out

Steamed veggies (instead of rice or noodles), broccoli beef, and mushroom chicken (aka moo goo gai pan). The Mouse ate the steamed veggies, the beef, and the zucchini (in the moo goo gai pan). The broccoli (from the broccoli beef) and the chicken and mushrooms went to tomorrow’s bento for The Cat.

After a late afternoon appointment, dinner at the mall (Ruscello in Nordstroms). No immediate seating inside. Weather pretty calm and dry, took seating outside.

Roma Tomato Basil

Steak and Barley Soup


The Cat ate late lunch so went with an “appetizer”.

Grilled Farm Bread Bruschetta

Seasonal tomatoes, burrata cheese, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, extra virgin olive oil, micro basil.

Being that The Mouse kinda had a “light” lunch, The Mouse ordered

Grilled Skirt Steak

Roasted asparagus, carrots, yukon gold potatoes, lemon basil vinaigrette. Everything was awesome (socks off), especially the price point. One exception, was the vinaigrette. Asked for catsup (horror or horrors for some) Hee hee.

Instead of ordering dessert in the restaurant, went outside to the Gelato Bar for an açaí bowl.

Açaí Bowl

A nom kinda day.

For those of you that are, hope you had a happy mother’s day.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Another eating event hosted by the brothers “stationed” at the Marianists center ( the university is located on Marianist property). The brothers seem to like to host eating events, I think Iʻve eaten at four of five already. Today was to “celebrate” the last day of university instruction (finals) before summer break.

The Mouseʻs Plate

Roast beef, French cut string beans (with bacon!). salsa (The Mouse did not take a quesadilla wedge), sausage puff pastry, fried southwest wonton (donʻt ask), shrimp shumai (I think it was premade, frozen), and pita bread.

Not too shabby for institution campus catering.

Have a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Panda Express.

A quicky lunch yesterday before “adventuring” with friends of The Catʻs brother. The Mouse usually shies away from Panda, call it a “perception thing”. Recently though, The Mouse has changed his mindset from “not Chinese enough” to “not even Chinese”. With that shift, places like P.F Chang and Panda Express become more appetizing since the food is “not even Chinese”. The Mouse doesnʻt try to compare the food to a “Chinese” standard. Now the caveat, The Mouse is not even close to having enough knowledge about “Chinese food”, not to mention the myriad of regions and the corresponding food styles (Szechuan, Cantonese, etc.)

Now the caveat, The Mouse is not even close to having enough knowledge about “Chinese food”, not to mention the myriad of regions and the corresponding food styles (Szechuan, Cantonese, etc.). Just personal opinion from The Mouse.

With that, The Cat and The Mouse had a short time before the appointed hour to meet with friends of The Catʻs brother (letʻs shorten it now to H and L). Even going to a ramen shop would involve seating, ordering, and waiting for the order … too long.

The Cat suggested Panda Cuisine, food already prepared, select, eat, go. Okey dokey.

After weighing the options (The Cat was thinking of a one selection rice bowl). The Cat decided on a kidʻs meal.

Panda Express Kidʻs Meal

For about a dollar less than a rice bowl, the kidʻs meal includes kidʻs portion choice of side and one entrée selection, drink, cookie (chocolate chip, not fortune), and a comic book. The Cat calculated and figured more bank for the buck (maybe not volume, but more variety).

Inside The Catʻs “Panda Box”

A liʻl bit of fried rice, steamed vegetables, and some chicken with long bean. The Cat was temporarily satisfied (she got hungry about two hours later, but that was due to portion size, not because the food was “Chinese”. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered the “adult” one side and two entrée plate.

The Mouseʻs Food

Spicy eggplant with tofu, black pepper chicken, and steamed vegetables. Happy that Panda Express includes steamed vegetables as a side choice instead of the usual “carbs”. Just had a doc appointment and he is advising to cut back on “carbs”. Boo. Sigh.

Anyway, food was fresh (check out the color of the steamed veggies, still vibrant), taste was okay. Very acceptable for “not even Chinese food”. Hee hee.

Next time, gonna try the grilled teriyaki chicken or the broccoli beef, or The Catʻs string bean chicken, or maybe, even the mushroom chicken (moo goo gai pan rules! hee hee), with the steamed veggies of course.

Ordered, ate, and met the appointment time one time! Yay for the team and Panda Express! 🙂

BTW, The Cat wanted to share the table setting and view of the other nightʻs dinner with friends.

Dinner with a view.

Overlooking K-Bay.

Enjoy. Eat well.
