The Cat stayed one extra day to meet up with one of her friends. Lunch under the umbrellas. They shared one appetizer and one salad.

Some Kinda Eggplant Thingy

In the middle, olive oil and butter in the other spaces.

Foie Gras Ravioli

Foie Gras Ravioli

The Cat loved the eggplant thingy, couldn’t eat the ravioli (too salty, too bleah). Foie Gras is a terrible thing to waste. Chef should be punished.

Overall, The Cat’s assessment of the food during her trip, overpriced and underwhelmed.

The Mouse fared better. Yesterday’s lunch. Pantry cleaning.

Spaghetti, Jao Zi Bowl

Spaghetti, Jao Zi Bowl

Spaghetti, jao zi, tin of sardines, drizzle of olive oil, pinch of Kauaʻi sea salt, and if you look very closely, green onions. One pot, one dish. :)

Dinner, combo plate, Saigon Noodle House.

Combo #3

Combo #3

BBQ pork, spicy tofu, eggroll, rice, small salad. The spicy sauce on the tofu reminded me (just a little bit) of stinky tofu, a little fermented (in a good way). Good food at probably less than one-third the cost of where The Cat was. :)

The Cat is at the airport, waiting for the return flight.

Happy Fourth.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not as epic as the previous post, different peeps, Ruby Tuesday.

The Mouse's Flatbread

The Mouse’s Flatbread

California Chicken Crispy Flatbread A west coast classic with lemon marinated chicken, sliced avocado, arugula, red peppers, cheese, and cilantro oil. Essentially a salad on a cracker.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Silent Saturday

As silent as I can be anyway.

In the neighborhood

Chao Phya Salad

Chao Phya Salad

Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, tofu, chicken, and shrimp tossed in a sweet and sour coconut dressing.

Newspaper Noodles "Pad Thai"

Newspaper Noodles “Pad Thai”

Rice noodles stir-fried with shrimp, tofu, egg, cabbage, and beansprouts.

Thai Red Curry Fish

Thai Red Curry Fish

Island fish steamed in banana leaf with Kona turmeric ginger and Thai coconut milk. One of the better Thai curries (in my opinion). Not hot, fish moist and tender.

Thai Sorbet Sampler

Thai Sorbet Sampler

Lilikoi, lichee, and Thai basil.

Getting late, have to get up early tomorrow, going to bed now, ‘nite, zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Fried” Salad

The prototype.

"Fried" Salad - First Attempt

“Fried” Salad – First Attempt

Romaine lettuce, slightly stir-fried with sun-dried tomato.

Last night.

"Fried" Salad - The Sequel

“Fried” Salad – The Sequel

Romaine lettuce, caramelized onion, celery, sun-dried tomato. Finished with fresh ground black pepper and a dash of dark rum. :)

Why “fried” salad? Because of the lettuce.

Sautéed, stir-fried, chop suey … semantics. Hee hee.

Still trying to eat “colorful” foods.

Happy long weekend (if you happen to have one).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Dinner with friends last night (he helped to put our fence and gate back together). Couple of months ago, the fence and gate did a humpty dumpty. Shutting up now.

Because he and his familia like Italian

Mouse's Panzanella Salad

Mouse’s Panzanella Salad with Grilled Chicken

Too much vinegar. Way overdressed.

Cat's Steamed Clams

Cat’s Steamed Clams

The Cat thought the sausage muddled the clam taste.

Mushroom Rissotto

Mushroom Risotto

The avocado is from The Mouse’s salad. One of the better risotto The Cat has tried. Not al dente, softer (a good thing according to The Cat).

The Friend's Daughter's Cheese Ravioli - Child's Portion

The Friend’s Daughter’s Cheese Ravioli – Child’s Portion

More like a little pasta with her cheese dinner (in a good way according to her).

The Kid's Rainbow Sherbert

The Kid’s Rainbow Sherbert

Thought I was having a 60’s flashback. She enjoyed it.

Whiskey Caramel Ice Cream

Whiskey Caramel Ice Cream

Adult’s dessert. Highlight of the dinner. Even The Mouse (who is lactose intolerant) took a couple of lactase enzyme pills to eat this. It was that good. Too bad it was only a daily flavor. Must track/hunt down the supplier.

To all you mothers out there. Happy day!

Oops wasn’t that silent. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
