No Hawaiian plate this week.

Coworker got her hands on a Goteborg sausage from Kauai, and shared some with the office. For some reason which The Mouse does not know yet. A Kauai regional food. I don’t think any other island favors Goteborg sausage as much as Kauai. More research is needed.

Goteborg Sausage

Of course The Mouse had to try. For breakfast. Hee hee.

Sausage went well with the planned breakfast.

Vegemite Toast and Dried Plums

With Earl Grey tea. Director brought back a tea bag variety from her trip to Disneyland. Tea. Not Mickey hats. Sigh.

Finally got to try the “Student Special #1” from St. Louis Drive Inn down the hill from campus. Highly recommended by a coworker from the old job.

Student Special #1

Two burgers, French fries, drink. Six bucks.

Chomp View

Burger, a little sauce, bun. No other accoutrements. Super old school. On the plus side, burger wasn’t drowned in sauce. On the minus side, no lettuce/tomato (at least lettuce). Good to try though.

Another coworker brought in something she didn’t want for the two known food enthusiasts in the office.


Coworker is not a vegetable/fruit eater plus not adventurous in the eating arena. The Mouse offered to cut a piece for her. Nope. That’s okay, The Cat and The Mouse benefit. 🙂


Since The Mouse didn’t have lau lau and or kalua pork on Friday, picked up a little “cat food” on the way home. 🙂

Hamachi Poke

And a little “mouse treat” too.

Smoked Salmon Poke

The hamachi poke for dinner, the smoked salmon poke to snack on.

The Cat had lunch at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

Eggplant Parmesan

The Cat brought home a little mousie bag, went into the freezer, probably will end up as part of one of The Cat’s bento next week.

Have a good weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Doctor “suggested” The Mouse cut down on carbs. Rice is now occasionally (once or twice a week), bread went from four to six slices a day (depending if The Mouse ate rice or not) to two. Instead of two slice servings, now one slice.


Slice of whole wheat toast (from JJ2 Bakery), margarine (with flax seed), and Vegemite. Tea or coffee (mostly green tea).


Another whole wheat toast, this time with jam and peanut butter, orange, banana, toaster roasted carrot.

Not missing the carbs too much. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Doctor says The Mouse has to cut down (not eliminate) carbs. Less sandwiches (two slices of bread), more toast (one slice of bread.

Vegemite Toast with Margarine

Oh yeah, butter is kinda a “taboo” too. Still working out the Vegemite ratio, I may have gone a wee bit overboard on the picture above.

PB, J, &B Toast with Orange

Light dinner.

Tomorrow is the big crockpot vegetable ragu adventure, will let you know how it went.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No work ’till Monday, well, I do go into the marketing office to work about half-a-day, owner let’s do flexible hours, and it’s quieter on Saturdays.

"Hawaiian" Plate Lunch

“Hawaiian” Plate Lunch

From one of my favorite “hole in the walls”, Tsukenjo’s.

Lau lau (taro leaf bundle with pork and other goodies), roast pork with gravy, tossed salad, rice. 🙂 Wish they had poi and sweet potato, but for under 10 bucks? Not complaining. 🙂

After that food coma inducing “brunch”, dinner was lighter.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Fried Egg Sandwich

Wheat bread, butter, Vegemite. Yum!

Heading off to meet with the cuz’s P&B for noodles. Slurp.

Enjoy. Eat well.

This and That

Or “dis and dat”.

Little tidbits, not really needing an individual post but still wanting to be included. 🙂

The Cat still playing with ground pork and salted duck egg. This time, adding a fresh chicken egg to the mix.

Ground Pork, Salted Duck Egg, and Fresh Chicken Egg

Ground Pork, Salted Duck Egg, and Fresh Chicken Egg (Raw)

The Cat thought her bowl looked like some cats that have different colored eyes. Plus one eye is bigger than the other. I thought the bowl looked a little cartoony.

A blogger in Australia (http://yummylummy.com/) suggested raw onions and cheese to go with my newly acquired Vegemite. The cheese part didn’t quite appeal to me, but the raw onions, hmmm.

Raw Onion and Vegemite Sandwich

Raw Onion and Vegemite Sandwich

Lunch for today. Not bad, not bad at all. For obvious reasons, I had to eat this when The Cat wasn’t home. Next time, I’ll maybe try sweet onions.

Thanks for the suggestion GL.

Enjoy. Eat well.
