The Japanese Diet

Is there something I don't understand about the Japanese diet? Last night we had a 'clean out the fridge' night - so, admittedly, it was a bit of a free-for-all. We laid out some tortillas, beans, and lettuce, and I made my patented taco meat scrambled eggs. Annie and I made our plates, and invited Ryo to do the same.

While Annie and I ate, we watched out of the corner of our eye as Ryo made his dinner. He assembled two of these: a tortilla filled with the scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, a lot of lettuce, beans, and two whole hotdogs. HOTDOGS! As you have noticed from previous posts, our students also put hotdogs in every bowl of ramen they make. We didn't even set the hotdogs out! His two tortilla ... things ... were absolutely huge and lumpy.

Yuki came home about an hour later, and also put hotdogs in his tortilla concoction. I honestly had no idea that the Japanese had such a fascination with hotdogs. We are going to have to find a wholesaler for them. We are going through them way too fast.
