Lazy Saturday

The Cat, finishing up tax returns to meet deadline. The Mouse, kinda lazy.


Boiled frozen soybeans, wakame seaweed, toasted sesame oil, Kaua‘i sea salt.

Grocery shopping at the nearby grocery store (for pork foot).

Steak Plate

Steak for The Mouse, rice and corn for The Cat’s bento for Monday. Rice, barley, corn, turnip greens, and roast pork (also bought from the grocery store).

Heading out to the farmers market and “brunch”.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat brought home an unmarked bag of dried vegetable, no, not that kind of dried “vegetable”. Some kinda Chinese stuff.

Dried Vegetable

According to The Cat, can be steamed, boiled, added to soups. Super salty, had to rinse twice after boiling to get it to an edible stage.

Reconstituted Boiled Vegetable

The Cat seems to like it, The Mouse is more ambivalent. Could be dried salted turnip greens, definitely not mustard cabbage (too mild tasting), dunno.

Anyone out there knows what this is?

Maybe adding this mystery dried vegetable to the next batch of chicken feet or pork foot soup. Stay tuned.

Enjoy. Eat well.

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.
