Posts Tagged ‘shiso’

Kind of a slow day yesterday.

Our second generation shiso plants are thriving.

Shiso!

I think the plants are better than the first generation, bigger leaves.

🙂

The Cat had another after-work training session. The Mouse had a choice. Take-out or bachelor cooking. Bachelor cooking it is. Frozen peas and carrots, tin of tuna.

“Cat Food”

A drizzle of avocado oil, a sprinkle of sea salt, and a turn of cracked pepper and The Mouse is good to go. Whenever The Mouse makes “mixed food”, The Cat calls it cat food. Humph. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

BOGO :)

So far, Burger King, Jack in the Box, and Panda Express has various incentives to participate in their customer surveys. Being pake, try to participate as often as possible.

Burger King and Jack in the Box places time limits on answering the survey and using the perk. Sigh.

Used a “Jack’s” one last night.

Jumbo Jacks

Buy one, get one free. Hee hee!

Jumbo Jack, Tomato, Shiso

So, The Mouse not too fond of lettuce on his burgers, tends to slide around and make holding the burger a challenge.

Chopped lettuce is more logical to The Mouse than whole leaves. Same with sliced onions, chopped is okay, sliced, not so much.

Plus, The Mouse likes lots of tomato on his burgers/sandwiches. So, a little modification.

Burger, Mouse Style

Tomato, thinly sliced, sprinkled with salt and pepper, shiso, when available. Yum!

Oh, the “get one free” burger? Went into the refridge for tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.

New Shiso

Our shiso plants that started several months ago were withering and dying. The Mouse thought that was the last of them until maybe next year.

But, the weekend, new plants started.

Shiso Bucket

Happy Mouse! 🙂

Keeping it simple.

The Mouse’s Plate

Open-faced tomato and shiso toast, apple banana, clementine orange.

Nom! Yum!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Egg McMuffin from Micky D

Shiso from our bucket. The Mouse thinks all (okay, most) sandwiches should come with a shiso option. Hee hee.

Ready to Nom

Ran an errand to Michael Mina’s “food court” concept at International Marketplace at Waikiki (same complex as Yauatcha), The Street. Chef Mina carries Chef’s chocolates (at “The Chocolate Bar”, cute ya?) and The Mouse wanted to check it out.

Location

Impressive. What an opportunity for the Chef.

Display

Like jewelry. Hee hee.

Box

Dark chocolate “lava rocks” (mac nut “bon bons”). Simply boxed and ribboned. The Cat and The Mouse likes the presentation even though they are still trying to work out some of the kinks.

Gift Bag

Again, very subtle.

Fun fact, The Mouse was their first customer … ever! 🙂

On the way back, drive-thru, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, ran out of chicken sandwich (What!??) Ordered a fish sandwich.

Fish Sandwich

Not bad, pretty good actually, especially if compared with Micky D “Filet-o-Fish”. At least Popeye’s has a bit of green. Sure wish I had the foresight to bring more shiso.

Of course, can’t go to Popeye’s without a side order of red beans and rice.

Red Beans and Rice

Now, The Mouse has never experienced “authentic” red beans and rice, but for what it is (fast food), The Mouse likes Popeye’s.

Funny, The Cat also went (separately) to The Street to check it out, missed each other by an hour.

Flatbread

 

Salad

With decent parking at somewhat reasonable prices (with minimum purchase), seems like The Cat and The Mouse will be doing more exploring of the new International Marketplace, even though it’s in Waikiki.

Last snippet.

Breakfast yesterday.

Zippy’s Breakfast Bento #1

Corned beef hash, SPAM, scrambled eggs, rice. Should’ve ordered brown rice, too early, couldn’t think, before coffee. Corned beef nicely “charred” with kogi bits. Ate the rice and corned beef hash, saved the SPAM and eggs for lunch.

SPAM and Egg Sandwich

Two slices of whole wheat bread at the office, slightly toasted, SPAM, eggs, packet mayo. Not bad for unscheduled, impromptu sandwich. Missing that shiso again.

As mentioned in the previous almost not posted post (clearly operator error), gonna be a late one tonight.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sliders!

Sliders!

Happy Mouse. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
