foods

A couple more days, and I am on my way back to the U.S.A.

Here are some foods I have encountered on my journey.

A pastry with cantaloupe cream filling.

.........................................................

Lavender flavor ice cream.

.........................................................

Fried Octopus Balls.

.........................................................

My lunch has eyes. Lots of little eyes.

.........................................................

Green eggs & ham anyone? There are actually chickens here that lay eggs with green shells.

.........................................................

The hotel called this the "American-style meal." One of the goodies on a stick there is an octopus leg.

.........................................................

This is more what I'd call an "American Style" meal... HAMBURGER sushi!

.........................................................

For over ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS you can buy this melon in a wooden box and give it to someone as a gift.

.........................................................

I got a free sample of Coffee Jelly. I thought it was just a weird translation of "frappuccino," but no, this is a Starbucks made-for-Japan-only specialty. It's a frappuccino with brown jelly floating around inside. There is a reason it has not been exported our way... as an American taste-tester, I can say it was yucky.

So how did the canteloupe pastry taste? It looks interesting!

Y'all are so cute with your purpley icecream. How was it?

I didn't know octopi had testicles.

I don't like my meals looking at me before I eat them.

I have had green eggs. Our cleaning lady at work has chickens and she sells eggs. Some brown and some green. They are very pretty!

I have eaten a lot of meals here in U.S.A. and none of them have looked liked your "American Style" meal. The Japanese like all the compartmentalized meals I see.

HamboogiSushi. Hmmmmm. I'll trust it tastes better than it looks.

Oh heck now you have ruined my Christmas gift idea Jenn. Thanks alot. Everyone was going to get a Oklahoma grown melon for a Christmas in July.

Starbux with jelly. I think it sounds interesting. Maybe we could write to our local Starbux and get a limited -time -only sample. Probably not.

Remember to bring home lots of Hi-chews...the Root Beer ones.

I get my eggs farm-fresh courtesy of a friend down the road who has a bunch of chickens. She has a bunch that lay green eggs! The pigs are normal colored though so I don't get to have any green ham with my eggs!

Looks like you are having a great time!

Apparently, even though all mothers tell their children in public bathrooms, "Don't touch ANYTHING!", if you only read braille and don't know how to wash your behind, you have to feel the walls! I wonder two things, how do they find the sign and how do they find the butt-washing switch? Eeewww!

I didn't know lavender had a taste. The only thing on the american style meal which looks american is the salad, was there something weird hiding under the lettuce? I wonder how much a watermelon would cost? What color are the chickens over there? Do you hate me yet?
