Jus’ cleaning out the phone.

Bottle of Himalayan Salt

For the food enthusiast co-worker. Not sure if you can see the side but there’s a little wooden spoon attached. Cute ya?

Cinnamon Sweet Bread

Brought in by the same co-worker. Not super sweet (cinnamon, not cinnamon sugar).

Chinese Cold Chicken

From a “hole in the wall” Chinese take-out nearby. Not bad, some dry spots, mostly moist.

Ginger Onion Sauce

The required accompaniment. 🙂

The Mouse’s Knife Practice

Thinly sliced tomato and matchstick cucumber on whole wheat toast.

Heading to another dinner at Michel’s tonight. Another chef’s choice menu. Funny, we’ve not ordered from the menu yet. Hee hee.

Happy weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

First an update. The “no feet soup” did jell just a bit, with the thinnest lay of fat on the top. Not really photogenic, so no picture.

The neighborhood Ruby Tuesday is running a promotion for June, bring in a can of food for the food bank, and the restaurant knocks off $5.00 the check.

Since yesterday was a holiday for The Mouse …

Veggie Trio

Green beans, zucchini, baked potato. The order comes with “all you can eat” salad bar.

The Mouse’s salad bar plate

So, The Mouse, being pake, filled up on the salad bar, and took home the potato and zucchini for another day. Appears The Mouse is not the only one with this strategy, read it in an online food article too. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No Feet Soup (Frown)

The neighborhood grocery store we normally frequent had no pig feet for sale. Sigh.

The other neighborhood grocery store we sometimes go to (prices are higher) no longer carry chicken feet nor pig feet. Ugh!

Probably have to drive over the mountain to the Kalihi area for chicken feet or pig feet. 😦

Only soup ingredient conveniently available was beef and pork bones, and The Mouse is not too fond of beef.

Pork Bones

Add can of beer.


Jus’ because. And a couple drops of apple cider vinegar (supposed to help to extract the nutrients from the bones).

Let simmer for hours (I dunno, maybe five plus?).

Add vegetables (yesterday it was turnip, Chinese okra, and Shanghai cabbage).

Pork Bone Beer Soup with Vegetables

Not sure if this soup will jell up. Let you know tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Taste of Kualoa

Some of the Australian visitors wanted to experience Kualoa Ranch, The Cat arranged for the Taste of Kualoa tour. The Cat and The Mouse went along too. Hee hee.

Over the years, Kualoa Ranch is striving to be a model of self-sustainability for SPAM land. The ranch raises cattle, seafood, vegetables, and fruit.

Talapia Patties


Jumbo Shrimp with Pesto




Shucked Oysters

Freshest oysters ever! I think just hours, if not minutes from harvest. The Cat even got to try shucking her first oyster, with help from the guide. No speed record set by any measure.

Sautéed Vegetables

The only vegetable not grown on the ranch was white onions, and they’re working on that.

Rosemary Skewered Beef

Interesting for The Mouse, since he likes learning about food origins. The Cat and the Australians had fun too. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
