No slow cooking this week, no pig foot, no chicken feet. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I know, I know, boring, but quick ‘n’ easy.

Bought a tray of five pieces chicken thighs, boneless and skinless. Each night, half a thigh for The Cat, half a thigh for The Mouse.

Celery and Chicken Stir-Fry

With wasabi flavored sesame seeds. 🙂

Stir-Fried Okra and Chicken

Frozen okra, I think I didn’t cook it long enough, a little underdone.

Boiled Okra with Chicken

Definitely cooked through this time. Sprinkled with olive oil and Himalayan salt. Nom.

Miso Soup with Vegetables and Chicken

Quick and easy.

And of course through this all, The Cat has her bowl of noodles with whatevers in the refrig.

Example of Noodle Bowl for The Cat

Seaweed, pak choi, corn, chicken, etc.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A morning trip to the laundromat, to wash towels. Our washer at home is a little skittish when it comes to washing heavier items. Lunch, take out from Panda Express, The Mouse’s new go-to take out (lots of veggies), don’t have to order massive carbs.

The Mouse’s Take Out

Steamed veggies (instead of rice or noodles), broccoli beef, and mushroom chicken (aka moo goo gai pan). The Mouse ate the steamed veggies, the beef, and the zucchini (in the moo goo gai pan). The broccoli (from the broccoli beef) and the chicken and mushrooms went to tomorrow’s bento for The Cat.

After a late afternoon appointment, dinner at the mall (Ruscello in Nordstroms). No immediate seating inside. Weather pretty calm and dry, took seating outside.


The Cat’s

Roma Tomato Basil

The Mouse’s

Steak and Barley Soup


The Cat ate late lunch so went with an “appetizer”.

Grilled Farm Bread Bruschetta

Seasonal tomatoes, burrata cheese, basil pesto, balsamic glaze, extra virgin olive oil, micro basil.

Being that The Mouse kinda had a “light” lunch, The Mouse ordered

Grilled Skirt Steak

Roasted asparagus, carrots, yukon gold potatoes, lemon basil vinaigrette. Everything was awesome (socks off), especially the price point. One exception, was the vinaigrette. Asked for catsup (horror or horrors for some) Hee hee.

Instead of ordering dessert in the restaurant, went outside to the Gelato Bar for an açaí bowl.

Açaí Bowl

A nom kinda day.

For those of you that are, hope you had a happy mother’s day.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not a very interesting week food-wise, my apologies.


Microwaved Veggies with Peanut Butter

Still trying to use up that organic jar of peanut butter that is too runny for toast or sandwich. Mixed with mixed veggies, not too bad.

I figure, start out with a mess of vegetables in the morning, less guilt throughout the day. Hee hee.

The office is connected with the campus director of finance and facilities (what a combo). She brings back leftovers whenever she has business meetings.

Breakfast Leftovers

Breakfast burrito, orange, hash brown. The Mouse’s lunch.

Dinner was what was planned for lunch, before the breakfast leftover.

Turkey and Ham on JJ2 Whole Wheat with Shiso Leaf

See, unexciting.

Planning on doing a little bit of exploring for lunch tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Prepping for Tomorrow

The Cat has an old mentor coming into town. The mentor loves Japanese food, especially ikura. Reservations for Sushi Izakaya Gaku tomorrow night. Yippee! The Cat talks and eats, The Mouse orders food and eats, the mentor eats.

Since izakaya menu not necessarily a lot of vegetables, I thought I’d bank today.



Mushrooms, marinated Asian salad (beansprouts, asparagus, carrots), tossed salad with chicken and charsiu.

Okay, The Mouse is ready for izakaya!

Hee hee! Clap clap!

Enjoy. Eat well.
