Back to Basics

The Cat and The Mouse trying to get back to “normal” eats after the holidays. Olive Garden weekday soup and salad all you can eat special.

Minestrone Soup
Pasta e Fagioli Soup

Think a cross between minestrone and chili soup. Hearty.


At least lunch was healthy and calorie-conscious. Hee hee.

Be safe, eat good.

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.

Plan was to go back to “hole in the wall” for braised tendon on rice, or maybe braised pig feet, but they closed early, sold out. Sigh.

Original Plan

A newer place around the corner, a different menu, but similar (noodles, rice, etc.), no tendon, no pig feet.

Plan “B”

Prices are about a dollar or two (maybe three) higher.

Pork with Pickled Cabbage Glass Noodle Soup

Macaroni and Ham Soup with Eggs

The Mouse has made something similar before since he saw it on the internet, but wanted to try it in a restaurant. Kinda simple, The Mouse wished there was a little bit of vegetables, even frozen, give the bowl a little color. But for comfort, bowl was okay.

Weekend Eats

The Cat wanted to shop for a light hoodie. A venture to the mall. Lunch at Nordstrom, Ruscello.

Tomato Basil Soup

Daily Pasta

Butternut squash and Italian ham? The Mouse forgot the description. The Cat thought it was okay. The Mouse played Russian roulette with the leftovers (The Mouse took two lactase pills). The Mouse survived. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered a salad.

Cauliflower Salad

All vegetable, no starch. Salad was very good, just didn’t last too long. The Mouse got hungry soon after.
