Another “weird” Saturday schedule, expected for the holiday season. The Mouse’s car needed oil service. Early morning appointment. Bonus! dealership had free popcorn! The Mouse ate a small bag, no salt, no butter. 🙂

Late breakfast, just missed the MickyD cutoff. “Filipino” take-out.

Meat Close Up

The Mouse chose fried rice, needed Lau Gan Ma, sausage and SPAM were well prepared, kitchen plated spinach instead of the onion and tomato salad, no vinegar dressing. Maybe kitchen thought since The Mouse wasn’t Filipino, tone down the flavors. That’s ok, spinach, wilted by the hot meat was good too (with a touch of Lau Gan Ma).

For dinner, went to our favorite Mexican restaurant on the Windward side. Not only for the food, but for the musical stylings of (never got his name). Have to ask next time.

First time for The Cat.

Giant Burrito

The Cat wanted to try, she surrendered after about a third. Remainder is for The Mouse’s bento tomorrow.

The Mouse ordered the usual fiesta bowl but this time with seafood (swai fish and shrimp).

Seafood Fiesta Bowl

No dairy, extra lime and salsa. The Mouse’s bowl was good, but he thinks he will be sticking to carnitas and chile verde in the future.

Farmers market and last minute Christmas shopping on the schedule today.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Enjoy. Eat well.

In The Cat and The Mouse case, it was a 2.5-fer. The Cat suggested lunch at Orchids Restaurant. Entree plus appetizer or dessert for special price. The Mouse was a little hesitant. Smaller portions? Still hungry after?

But, try try.

Chiffon Cake, Coconut-Amaretto Cream.

A little on the pricey side for lunch, but not not “break the bank, OMG what were you thinking!” pricey. More affordable than dinner. Not everyday, but once in a while. Hope to be back in the not too distant future.

Enjoy. Eat well.
