Prepping for Tomorrow

The Cat has an old mentor coming into town. The mentor loves Japanese food, especially ikura. Reservations for Sushi Izakaya Gaku tomorrow night. Yippee! The Cat talks and eats, The Mouse orders food and eats, the mentor eats.

Since izakaya menu not necessarily a lot of vegetables, I thought I’d bank today.

Salad(s)

Salad(s)

Mushrooms, marinated Asian salad (beansprouts, asparagus, carrots), tossed salad with chicken and charsiu.

Okay, The Mouse is ready for izakaya!

Hee hee! Clap clap!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not much happened over the weekend. Farmer’s market, grocery shopping, Ruby Tuesday, etc. No funny soup this week, taking a break.

Opted for a cauliflower salad for lunch (from the grocery store deli).

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

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.

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

Enjoy. Eat well.
