The Mouse “voluntold” for last minute “corporate” shopping for The Cat. Chocolates from The Halekulani. Since he was there, picked up a few thing for ourselves. A croissant, a banana and coconut pastry thingy, and a loaf of fig and nut bread.

The Mouse wasn’t thinking straight, too tired sitting in holiday traffic, forgot to take pics of the pastries after bring them home. Tried to this morning from the freezer, the result.

Banana and Coconut Pastry Thingy?

A bit too frosty. Oops.

The Mouse also went to looking for packaging. On to Walmart, ugh, more “congestion”.

So, lately, The Mouse has been trying to eat smaller portions. the food bags we have are a little too big, The Mouse picked up something that reminded him of small-kid time hanabata days.

Sandwich Bags

And not just any sandwich bags, these have been infused with “The Force”. Hee hee.

I have not seen any of the “third” series of films, the three “prequels” kind of killed the franchise for The Mouse, possibly will see the last of the nine for nostalgia. Are you planning to see? Are you a fan?

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse frequently does it, The Cat has fits. Hee hee.

Yesterday’s eating log.


Kalua pork and cabbage over rice. Could be lunch or dinner, The Mouse decided for breakfast πŸ™‚


Nico’s at Pier 38, supervisor treated the group.

Furikake Pan Seared Ahi: Fresh tuna Ahi steak coated with Japanese dried seaweed and sesame seeds then cooked to order, from rare to well done. Served with Nico’s ginger garlic cilantro dip.

Okay, this could be lunch, but The Mouse thinks more dinner.

Dinner got a little complicated. The Mouse was jonesing for bakery stuff. Dinner rolls.

First stop Zippy’s. No dinner rolls, but The Mouse was enticed with some of their offerings.

In the Box

Bread pudding, cornbread, pumpkin coffee cake, pumpkin donut (baked not fried), and a mochizada? Mochi flour made into a malasada-like pastry. Much less oil than a regular malasada (at least the ones from Leonard’s anyway), much denser. not bad. Buy again? Maybe.

A visit to old school institution on this side of the island.

Front Door

Cash only, no checks, no credit/debit cards. Old school.

A package of dinner rolls.


No individual, had to buy a dozen.

Must say though these are the bomb! Just buttery enough, soft, not soggy, probably not health food, but comfort food. Thumbs up, socks off.

Dinner Rolls

Also had a bowl of oatmeal, to make-up for breakfast. Hee hee.

Now, what to do with the rest of the package, hmm, maybe SPAM sliders or breakfast sliders. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Start a new job today! The Cliffnotes version, interviewed yesterday, start today.

New job is near St Germain main bakery in Kalihi. Picked up some macaroons.


Not so much that The Mouse likes macaroons, they’re okay, more for the colors. πŸ™‚


The Mouse couldn’t remember them all.

Off to work. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
