Plain and Simple

Sometimes, plain and simple is good.

My sorta consistent Sunday lunch from Ruby Tuesday after Sunday farmer’s market at the mall.

Classic Burger with Fries

So, The Mouse’s regular routine would be add on and fill up on the salad bar, eat the fries (‘cuz in The Mouse’s opinion, leftover fries are eck), take home the burger for later (leftover burgers are the bomb!).

This week, the burger was extra juicy and the bun got super soggy. Not good for leftover. The Mouse took out the burger, ate the rest of the sandwich (veggie sandwich), and too home only the patty.

Picke up a “fresh” bun from the grocery store.


The Mouse was hoping to find a sesame seed or pretzel bun, no such luck.

Pop the patty a few minutes in the toaster oven to “warm”, not cook.

A spread of Vegemite (thanks Yummy Lummy!), a shiso leaf, and voila!

Burger, Mouse Style

The Vegemite adds umami, like teri sauce, but not as sweet, and not as messy. The shiso leaf gives The Mouse the impression he is eating his vegetables. Hee hee.

No need fancy sauces, gourmet accouterments, plain and simple. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

I know, most people choose the dish and the condiment(s) follow. Sometimes, The Mouse wants a condiment and the food follows. Such was the case last night.

The condiment:

Favorite Right Now

But you probably guessed that?

So far, the food of choice has been beef (no opportunity for pork belly, yet). Mickey D’s has that special sauce that might interfere with the complete Vegemite experience. Luckily, BK is close by.

BK Whopper

No special sauce, just a bit of mayo.

Properly Vegemite-d

Nom! Again, thanks to Yummy Lummy!

The Cat worked late and picked up something from the mall food court.

Black Rice Bowl with Kale, Mushroom, and Vegetables

And Vegemite.

My brother from another mother gave me yesterday’s inspiration. Check it out:


My nom moment was not as ambitious, but no less epic (no sous vide involved).

Instead of The Mouse’s usual three veggies and salad bar, he tried a Ruby Tuesday classic burger with salad bar.

The Mouse’s Salad

And the classic burger, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, no special sauce.

Ruby Tuesday Classic Burger

With fries.

Here’s where the burger transforms into awesomeness.

A Schmear of Vegemite

OMG! Is it possible for the burger to taste beefier? With Vegemite it does!. Brought all kinds of umami to the sandwich. My new favorite condiment for the burger (I know, shot’s not the greatest, hard to shoot brown on brown, sigh).

Can’t wait to schmear Vegemite on some kinda pork dish. 🙂

Much mahalo brother!

Oh, The Cat had her usual shrimp skewers.

Shrimp Skewers

Vegemite and shrimp hmm … nah, the Vegemite might overpower the shrimp.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Between Holidays

Not too much happening.

Pork Hock

Broth and meat for The Cat’s lunches and dinners. Nothing fancy, pork, water, vinegar. Broth jelled solidly. The Mouse could’ve made an aspic. Hee hee.
