Manic Sunday

Sigh! Looks like operator error again. Did not hit the publish button.

Coffee and “donuts” while waiting for the laundry at the laundromat.

"Donuts"

“Donuts”

Saved several for today.

Besides the normal bananas, papayas, and the occasional avocado from the farmers market, picked up a couple of packages of nuts.

Furikake and Wasabi Almonds

Furikake and Wasabi Almonds

New vendor at the market. Nuts for “favors” for yesterday’s lunch, and one for The Cat to try.

Lunch with former co-workers (most of them retired).

Popover

We’ve known each other for at least three decades!

Complimentary Chicken Broth

Complimentary Chicken Broth

It was a toss up between the applewood salmon salad and the fennel seared ahi salad. The server recommended the ahi.

Seared Ahi Salad

Seared Ahi Salad

Baby green beans, fingerling potatoes, orange, frisee, red wine vinaigrette, nicoise olive aioli. Nicely composed and very tasty.

Dessert was simple.

Mariposa Cookie Box

With recipe! Not that I’m planning to bake anytime soon. Ate one and took the rest home for today (my all hallows treat). Hee hee.

Happy Halloween!

Enjoy. Eat well.

A very weird weekend (in a good way).

Saturday night, The Cat wanted to check out the new International Marketplace in Waikiki. Plus we had a coupon for here.

Coaster

The Cat ordered pasta.

The Cat's Pasta

The Cat’s Pasta

Vegetable and orecchiette pasta. The Cat said is was okay.

The Mouse's Shrimp Burger

The Mouse’s Shrimp Burger

Shrimp burger, jalapeno mayo, shaved radish and sesame gochujang. Meh. Fries came out room temperature at best, not knock your sock off. The shaved radish was good.

On impulse, we also ordered The Cat’s favorite salad from here.

Salmon Salad

Salmon Salad

Salmon salad, coconut caramel dressing. Server didn’t ask if we wanted this to start, all plates came together, which made for some logistical acrobatics to juggle the three plates on a two top table. My impression so far (we’ve been here twice), restaurant missing something.

An after dinner walk to see …

New International Marketplace

New International Marketplace

Nice update, lots of space still being worked on, come back later when more complete.

After all that walking, The Mouse needed a “pick-me-up”.

An old-time Waikiki “institution”.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Tuna Thursday

Started nondescript enough.

Sandwich on the run, from Watanabe Bakery.

Tuna Sandwich and Potato Salad Sandwich

Tuna Sandwich and Potato Salad Sandwich

The tuna sandwich is a tuna sandwich. Okay. The potato salad sandwich, a long-time “favorite” novelty.

Dinner was a combination of cleaning out the refrig and a continuation of the tuna theme.

White Stem Cabbage Bitter Melon Celery

A quick sauté of each, a tin of tuna, some olives, and capers.

The Mouse's Tuna Salad

Much better than the sandwich. But one was on the run, and one was “created”.🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

AKA scheduled maintenance. Hee hee.

Beach

Beach

Can you guess where?

Yup. Waikiki. Hilton Waikiki Prince Kuhio Hotel. Just to chill.

That’s why we could take a night and day picture of Friday night’s dinner spot (see previous post).

The Cat assigned The Mouse to search for eating places.

Breakfast.

Il Lupino

Weekend breakfast specials come with a glass of Prosecco.

Both The Cat and The Mouse ordered the combo.

Açaí Bowl

Açaí Bowl

Açaí, soy milk, granola, and berries

And

Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast

Pugliese bread, extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, Hawaiian chili, and sea salt flakes.

For the price, its like we got the glass of bubbly for free. Woohoo.

A definite return place.

Good thing we didn’t have to drive, by the time we finished breakfast, both The Cat and The Mouse were a bit wobbly. Hee hee.

So, for a while, The Mouse has been looking at cars. None of the new cars has caught his eye yet (they all look the same).

I think I found a potential candidate.

The Mouse's Dream Car

1957 Mini pick-up. Cute ya?

After exploring Waikiki for a couple of hours, lunch at a place that the cuz’s P&B liked.

Notice the shaka sign?

The Cat wanted to try.

The Cat's Salmon Salad

The Cat’s Salmon Salad

No lettuce. Herbs, green beans, salmon. The Cat liked.

The Mouse's Braised Beef Shortribs

The Mouse’s Braised Beef Shortribs

The dish was supposed to come with fries. What!? The restaurant may not be in tuned with local tastes, need rice! Server was kind enough to substitute brown rice.

Dessert was pistachio pavlova?

Pistachio Pavlova

Pistachio Pavlova

Kinda meringue-y, The Cat liked, The Mouse, not so much. But try try.

There you have it the complete day of eating on a staycation.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Recap

Not too much happened.

Normal visit to farmers market for apple bananas.

Picked up a dragon fruit (first time).

Dragon Fruit

Vendor said it was ripe, sliced it up for dinner. Not bad, very mild flavor.

Brunch/lunch at Zia’s.

Express Lunch(es)

Express Lunch(es)

The Cat had soup (tomato bisque) and salad, The Mouse ordered salad and pasta (spaghetti marinara).

The spaghetti reminded me of small-kid-time cafeteria spaghetti (in a good way), plain and simple.

The Cat couldn’t finish her salad. Took it home and added it to her dinner soup.

Vegetable Soup with Mochi Rice Cake

Vegetable Soup with Mochi Rice Cake

A new definition of “soup and salad”. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
