New Shiso

Our shiso plants that started several months ago were withering and dying. The Mouse thought that was the last of them until maybe next year.

But, the weekend, new plants started.

Shiso Bucket

Happy Mouse! 🙂

Keeping it simple.

The Mouse’s Plate

Open-faced tomato and shiso toast, apple banana, clementine orange.

Nom! Yum!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Okay, finally got all (I think all) of the pictures. Since it’s a perceived milestone birthday (for Aunty M), The Cat wanted to go to someplace different (and maybe special).  Lunch reservations at Yauatcha Waikiki, specializing in dim sum and tea.

Now, this ain’t your typical Chop Suey joint, think fusion between a higher-end dim sum establishment and a European night club.

Condiment Set-up

Chili oil, chili paste with anchovies (or could be dried shrimp, XO sauce?) pickled cucumber (these knocked The Mouse’s sock off), and soy sauce.

Jasmine Tea

Very nicely fragranced (perfumed?).

Har Gau (Shrimp Dumplings)


Bamboo Dumpling


Crab and Kalo (Taro) Croquette


Prawn and Crispy Beancurd Cheung Funn


Roast Duck Pumpkin Puff


Pak Choi with Ginger

Another winner! Definitely order again. Perfectly cooked and seasoned.

Of course, birthday meal, have to have noodles.

Three Mushrooms Hand Pulled Noodle

Another dish The Mouse would be happy to order again.

Raspberry Delice

Raspberry, Manjari chocolate, lychee. Presentation and taste. Nom!

Rich and decadent. Perfect for b-day.

Complimentary Dessert

Matcha green tea, lavender vanilla, and I forgot the last flavor. Aunty M was full.

Wrapped up for later

Aunty M, you da bestest. Happy b-day!

Enjoy. Eat well.

A spur of the moment dish.


Peeled and rough cut, boiled in slightly salted water until the eggplant “falls apart”. Boil soft tofu until the tofu falls apart. Drain both eggplant and tofu, combine with salt, curry powder, and coconut oil.

Eggplant and Tofu, Curry Flavor

Packed The Catʻs lunch with ancient grains, canned corn, toasted black sesame seeds, yesterdayʻs kale and chickpea curry, and the eggplant and tofu curry.


Enjoy. Eat well.

Not much happened over the weekend. Farmer’s market, grocery shopping, Ruby Tuesday, etc. No funny soup this week, taking a break.

Opted for a cauliflower salad for lunch (from the grocery store deli).



Staying the course for now. 🙂

That’s about it. Hope you have a great week!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Eat more greens and veggies. It’s not that I don’t like vegetables, just kinda strayed during the holidays. Have to get back to “normal”.

New Year’s lunch with one of The Cat’s relatives. Kinda an “obligation” thing. And, has to be Chinese food. Ended up at Nice Day Chinese Seafood Restaurant.

In trying to stick to the new year’s resolution, The Mouse ordered greens.

Stir-Fried Choi Sum

Stir-Fried Choi Sum

The Cat ordered noodles.

Braised Egg Noodles

Braised Egg Noodles

The Cat’s relative was the “naughty” one (at least as far as resolutions go).

Kau Yuk with Taro

Kau Yuk with Taro

The Mouse tried to stick to the plan and ate mostly vegetables, but the kau yuk was too tempting. So, I had one piece. Think of it as easing into the habit. At least it was only one piece. And the leftovers were taken by the relative to remove further temptation. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
