The Mouse eats. Not really “sandwiches”, stuff between two pieces of bread, but, close enough. Hee hee.

Chicken Wrap from Starbucks

V shared with The Mouse. She could only eat half. Grilled white meat chicken, chile-lime slaw, ginger cream cheese, chile tortilla. Nom.

Natto Toast with Fried Egg

The Mouse made himself, for dindin. Think avocado toast but better! Hee hee. At least in The Mouse’s opinion, others may differ. πŸ™‚

And for a bonus …

Boiled Fava Beans

Precooked, frozen, parboil when ready to eat. Have to make the flup flup sound when eating. Just the beans no liver or Chianti. Hee hee ewww!

Enjoy. Eat well.

I guess sometimes The Bangles get it wrong. Yesterday was pretty manic.

It started Friday afternoon. One of the cans in the pantry was leaking. After the clean-up, thought it better to eat the contents of the cans the leaking can dripped on (no, I did not eat the contents of the compromised can).

Without going into details, I guess the combination was not too comfortable for The Mouse’s tummy. Stomach woke me up early Saturday morning needing … uhm … you get the idea.

After that, tried to go back to sleep and slightly overslept (hence the non-posting yesterday).

After some unexpected and time-consuming errands, a late breakfast/lunch gorge. Probably not the best course of action, but I was “starving”. Buffet lunch at Maple Garden/Yen King.

Food!

Food!

Choi sum, garlic eggplant, steamed fish, beef broccoli, salt and pepper shrimp. If the salt and pepper shrimp is right out of the wok, the shells are crispy and delicate like thin glass and I eat ’em shell, head, and all. Alas, the shrimp were not right out of the wok (buffet line syndrome), but they were still acceptable, just had to peel them.

A couple of hours later, another tummy grumble episode. Maybe The Mouse was slightly dehydrated after running errands.

Hungry again.

Checked out a “newish” Japanese bakery/eatery been curious about.

Sign, Pastry Island, Plate

At the suggestion of the kitchen staff and counter sales people, selected two pastries for The Cat and one for The Mouse.

Mango Tart, Sweet Potato Bun, Pork Belly Bun

Mango Tart, Sweet Potato Bun, Pork Belly Bun

When the counter staff saw me trying to take a picture, they loaned me a plate so that it would be more “photogenic”. Cute ya?

Pork Belly, Hoisin Sauce Bun

Pork Belly, Hoisin Sauce Bun

Very tasty. definitely a “go back again item”.

A late dinner with The Cat (deadline pressure).

The Mouse’s “mixed rice”.

Shredded Pork and Szechuan Pickle Rice Bowl

Only issue with Goma Tei is after eating, thirsty (dunno if it’s too much salt or MSG).

Finished the day/night with a stop at Starbucks (not for coffee).

Herbal Sangria Shaken "Tea"

Herbal Sangria Shaken “Tea”

No caffeine. Bonus, frozen raspberries and orange slices in the drink. πŸ™‚

Sunday morning, no tummy issues for The Mouse. Happy happy.

Off to grocery shopping for the week. Hopefully no “mania” today.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Another weird Saturday. Due to a glitch in the space/time continuum, the day’s schedule was a little off kilter.

First on the agenda, once the time schedule was “restored” (where’s the TARDIS when you need one), lunch with the cuz’s P&B @ Sweet Home Aunty (choose your ingredients, type of noodles and soup).

The Mouse's Basket

This time around I chose egg noodles and herbal broth.

The Mouse's Washbowl of Noodles.

The Mouse’s Washbasin of Noodles.

Truly, bowls are big enough to serve as a washbasin. πŸ™‚

P's Washbasin

P’s Washbasin

Spicy soup.

And added a side order of house fried chicken.

House Fried Chicken

I was hoping, for P’s palate, the chicken would be spicy … uhm no, more honey coated. Not bad, but not what I expected.

Didn’t get into the office until just before 2:00 pm. Sigh.

Late afternoon “snack”, (since probably would have to feed The Cat after she finished work).

Oatmeal Cookie from Starbucks Coffee

It’s tax season, eating schedules are pretty much out the door.

Super late night noshing (along with other “children of the night”).

Saimin

The Cat’s Saimin

The Mouse's Mini Fried Rice with "Easy" Egg

The Mouse’s Mini Fried Rice with “Easy” Egg

Like Like (pronounce all the vowels) Drive Inn. Definitely not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination, more of an “eat to live” meal.

Heading to the farmers market. Hopefully more jicama.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yesterday started off well.

Roast Pork with Gravy - "Mini" Portion

The Famous Roast Pork with Gravy – “Mini” Portion

From Tsukenjo’s. The regular would have put me in a food coma. Owner is very generous with her portions.

Dinner was planned to be veggies, to balance out the lunch.

Boiled Celery and Radish

But then, remember these?

Prosciutto San Danielle and Speck

Prosciutto San Danielle and Speck

Had to taste test them before using them in a sandwich, it’s the scientific thing to do. Heh heh.

Speck on top Prosciutto on bottom

With crackers. Yum. The Prosciutto had a more “fermented” taste. The speck more “hammy”.

The finished off with a cookie.

Oatmeal Cookie from Starbucks

Very dangerous to have a Starbucks near the bus stop.

Anyway, a good food day.

Are you wearing (or drinking) green today?

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Cookie Day

Today was my last regularly scheduled day at W-S. I have one more on-call day, and one inventory day, but today was the last regular work day (I was only hired for the Christmas season).

To celebrate I got a cookie from Starbucks (I have a gift card).

Cookie!

Cookie!

Oatmeal, cranberry, and raisin. You know I’m a sucker for oatmeal cookies. It’s pretty good. Shh, in some ways, it’s better than Chef P’s, just don’t let him know.

Looking forward to this weekend. If everything goes as scheduled, it’s going to be a pork-fest. Stay tuned. πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.
