The Sudanese eat one meal (usually a plate of fuul, which is beans) at about 10:00 AM, then the main meal at about 2:00 PM, then another little meal at about 10:00 PM.
Our school follows the Sudanese model, and gives us a break at 10:00 AM in which a lot of people eat food from home. Recently, however, they've been trying out providing school lunch. Different moms volunteered to cook easy foods for any kids who pre-ordered a month ago. This was what we got the week the Korean mom cooked... only there were about 10 pieces of sushi when I got it. I wanted to save more to make a nice photograph, but they were too good!

I never exptected you to have good sushi while in the desert of Sudan. I'd guess it would be hard to get fish. It turns out sushi is one of our favorite dishes (in fact, we had it on our first date)

Ruth said...

actually, fish are omnipresent. the nile, you know...

in louisiana i knew some guys who would take girls to sushi bars on first dates to try and gross them out. i trust you're not one of them.

Rest assurred, it was only after the okay from Alicia - though I have to admit it was a relief to find such a cool woman who liked sushi.

Who are these naughty boys that you are dating from Louisiana? (querried with a strong avuncular tone)

Ruth said...

no, no. when we lived in louisiana (remember this was 5 years ago), there were young men in our ward who did that.

Sounds like the kind of thing Dad would have done to see if his dates were adventurous enough. :)

I don't think sushi will cut it as "adventurous" in Palo Alto as its likely everyone eats sushi. Sam, you'll have to try Kim-chee or Morcia (Spanish Blood Sausage).
