Long Day

The Cat and The Mouse took in an airshow yesterday. An adventure to be sure.

Fly By

The Blue Angels was the highpoint.

Equipment Plane

Unsung heroes of the stars.

On the Line

The Cat and The Mouse tickets included food and drink. Let’s just say the food and drink were less than expected. Highpoint of the food was the poi.


Thick and just barely turning sour. The Mouse ate three containers. Mmm.

The rest of the food and the logistics were meh.

After the show, took us forever to get off base. Parking/traffic control was less than meh.

Late dinner at Ruby Tuesday.

The Cat’s Vegetable Plate

The Mouse’s Fish Sandwich

Like any adventure, there are ups and downs, in the end, all good. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Poi Update

The Mouse went for blood test, no breakfast. The Mouse’s “brunch” after test.

Poi Brunch

With leftover bits and pieces of meat (baby back rib meat, Chinese roast pork, chicken finger). 🙂

Another half container of poi for today. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

Poi! :)

Neighbor works at a grocery store. Batch of poi was about to expire, he got permission to take home. He distributed with neighbors. 🙂


The Mouse is not sure the process the poi company uses to prepare the poi but the poi stays fresh. The Mouse will eat today. Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Yesterday at the warehouse, a lot of sampling.


Patty? made from poi and taro leaves. Tastes great, looks not so much, kinda looked like cow stuff. Locally made sausage, corned beef (not locally made), and ham (not local). The Mouse’s favorite was the poi patty, and ham. Nom.

Later in the day, one of the meat managers brought in poi, pineapple, and lomi salmon. Why? Dunno. He did not buy it. Maybe from one of the suppliers? The Mouse did not look gift horse in mouth. Hee hee.




The Mouse passed on the lomi salmon, what! Dunno why, but since the operation, The Mouse has a slight aversion to onions, especially raw (used to love ’em). Side effect from anesthesia? Oh well, least of The Mouse’s concerns right now, deal with it later, maybe.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse saw this place featured on one of the food show and wanted to try.




Not resort, neighborhood. Side of the highway. “Off the beaten path” you might say.

Inside, like walking into someone’s garage, converted into a kitchen/dining area. Super quaint/rustic.

The Spread

The menu, super simple. Lau lau, kalua pig with cabbage, rice, poi, lomi salmon, mac salad, haupia, kalolo. The Mouse thinks we ordered everything on the menu.

Awesome food. Again, not “gourmet”, but down-home real food.

According to a friend that lives nearby, they often sell out. Good for them.

If there is another opportunity, The Mouse will be back. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
