Odds and Offs

Week’s end. Cleaning out the food. Came across a can of chicken “spread”, thought about making chicken salad, the “spread” part didn’t register in my brain until I opened the tin.

Makings of a chicken salad?

Makings of a chicken salad?

Texture like butter (but softer), lard maybe, general eww. No other alternative (didn’t want to just chuck it), being pake and all.

Mixed the spread with chopped celery and Napa cabbage. Had an artificial, weird taste and aftertaste. Added black pepper, rice vinegar and apple cider vinegar. Figured the vinegar could at least mask any weirdness.

Chicken Salad?

While not pretty, and certainly not desirable, it was at least palatable (think weird local style macaroni salad gone awry). Not doing this again. Eww eww.:)

Better luck next time.

Not all canned meat is SPAM. Lesson learned.

Luckily The Cat brought home her leftover salad from CPK.

Quinoa + Arugula Salad

Quinoa + Arugula Salad

Super-grain salad with asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions, toasted pine nuts and Feta tossed in our housemade Champagne vinaigrette.

Could’ve used a bit more vinaigrette, but I’m not complaining.

The adventure continues.

Eat well.

Taco (Salad) Tuesday

La Comida.

Pre- and Post- Mixed

Pre- and Post- Mixed

Of course choose the pork option. Generous portion. Chips on the bottom, gets soggy, the way I like it.

Along with the normal pico de gallo (house-made), which is good, chef included a sample of his hot condiments.

Opened the container, took a whiff, wimped out, and passed the whole thing to my cubicle neighbor (who loves spicy).

Currently, best taco salad in the area.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s Salad

So, while The Mouse stayed home yesterday hoping Oscar Goldman would call (he didn’t). The Cat checked out the new Nordstrom at the mall.

She thought the new restaurants were a better concept than the old Nordstrom.

Miso Tofu Salad

Miso Tofu Salad

Organic baby greens, watercress, tofu, japanese cucumber, tomato, green onions, lotus chips, furikake, miso dressing. From Ruscello. The Cat liked.

The salad looked good, but …

The Mouse would be more inclined to try the Kalua pork sliders from the bar on the second floor, Habitant.

But you knew that already. Hee hee.:)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lighting was from the window. Not so good.

Salad was pretty good. Beans were beans, not refried. Half was through, realized no chips. Sigh. Looking at menu, not sure if chips are served with the salad.😦

Over all, not bad, not something I would crave to return. Decent.

In a head to head decision though, I would choose La Comida over OMG, just my personal opinion. But try try.

How was your Cinco de Mayo day. The Cat got randomly stopped at a police checkpoint last night. Nothing happened.

Reason for the late post, The Mouse (not his computer) is experiencing some hardware malfunction. Where’s Oscar Goldman when you need him. Granted I don’t look like Lee Majors. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Still in the midst of busy season. The Cat with taxes (ugh!), The Mouse tracking local legislative activities.

Bento

Mochiko chicken and salmon shioyaki. Not super cheap for the amount of food, but small discount. Just a light meal before bed.

That’s all for now.

Enjoy. Eat well.
