Jus’ cleaning out the camera/phone.

Bacalao Salad and Pastele

A try try on the way home. The Mouse liked. Saved one of the pastele for The Cat’s lunch this week.

Char Siu Puff Pastry

Leftover from The Cat’s lunch. 10 minutes in the toaster oven, good to go. Hee hee.

Next, The Mouse’s weird eats, hope co-worker V is not reading. Her leftover spaghetti from lunch she gave to The Mouse.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

The Mouse explains. Small-kid time hanabata days, The Mouse’s first encounter (and ultimate reference point) with spaghetti/pasta was from a can, then at elementary school, baked spaghetti by the awesome cafeteria ladies. There was no such thing as “al dente” and “sauce to complement the pasta” in The Mouse’s food knowledge quiver.

To this day, The Mouse will order pasta at restaurants “cooked past “al dente” and extra sauce.” Just a preference.

So, to “adjust” the spaghetti to The Mouse’s palate, added a can of tomato sauce and cooked the spaghetti just a little more.

The Mouse’s Plate

This was very nom! Thank you V, your leftovers went to good use, in The Mouse’s tummy. Hee hee 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s order. She was going to order the sweet potato ravioli but had to have long noodles last night (ancient Chinese tradition).

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and Meatballs

The Mouse’s order. Try try. Not bad.

Both The Cat and The Mouse took home “doggy” (or more appropriately kitty and mousey) bags for lunch the next day.

Dessert was free from JJ2 Bakery. Any single serve dessert.

Tiramisu Cup

One of the better tiramisu lately. Moist, chocolate, a little bit of coffee.
