Olive Oil

The Cat’s client sent over a bottle of olive oil from Spoleto, Italy. The Mouse trying to take a picture that will do the bottle right. Will post later.

In the meantime, The Mouse made a salad with a splash of the oil.


Tiny tomatoes, canned baby corn, green olives, splash of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. The Mouse tried to honor the oil by the colors of the Italian flag. The corn wasn’t quite white, guess could’ve used white beans. The salad was refreshing though.

Be safe, eat good.

No Chinese food, restaurants too crowded. The Cat and The Mouse decided on Rigo restaurant, Spanish and Italian cuisine, Japanese chef. Lunch specials, includes small salad.


This is The Cat’s dish, server was kind enough to leave cheese off of The Mouse’s. 🙂

Pork Belly “Taco”

Turnip instead of tortilla. Mmm.

Clam. Asparagus & Tomato Caldoso

Spanish style soup risotto. Think “ojiya” or “jook”. The Cat’s order. Good choice, she is getting over a cold.

The Mouse forgot to take a pic of his shoyu-butter spaghetti. No worries, think white rabbit in snow storm. Tasty though. 🙂

No non-dairy desserts, The Cat ordered chocolate cassata.

Chocolate Cassata

May the year of the rabbit be of smooth roads, clear skies, and calm waters.

The Cat bought discounted gift cards at Costco. She used to frequent the restaurant but relocation of her office made it less accessible. The Cat had to use an expiring discount at Macy’s, good opportunity.

The Cat and The Mouse decided to share one pasta and one salad to cut down on calories.

Cappellini Pasta with Meat Sauce

The Cat added on fresh spinach, fresh mushroom, and roasted tomato.

Chopped Salad

The salad doesn’t look like much but hidden was roasted chicken and salami. Mmm!

Crunchy Brussels Sprouts

Perfect accompaniment. 🙂

Minestrone Soup
Pasta e Fagioli Soup

The Cat and The Mouse try someplace “new”. Mangiamo by 604. Mainly Italian cuisine. Restaurant advertised an all-you-can-eat soup and salad special. The Mouse couldn’t find what soups were available but decided to go for it. Background, The Cat likes the soup and salad all-you-can-eat at Olive Garden.

The choices were Italian salad, Caesar salad, zuppa toscana, and tomato basil. Both soups contain dairy. Sigh.

The Mouse was mindset on soup and salad. Plan B. The Mouse ordered a burger.

604 Burger

Well made, the fries were bomb, the burger was above decent.

The Cat went with the all-you-can-eat soup and salad.

Salad, Soup

The Cat tried both soup selections (zuppa toscana, tomato basil), while both were good, she preferred the zuppa toscana.

Dessert was tiramisu, recommended by the server.


The Mouse liked (after taking lactase enzyme pills), The Cat was more meh.

Be safe, eat good.
