New Dish

We are always intrigued by how our Japanese students can take everyday ingredients and make a completely new dish. Last night, Yuki demonstrated his culinary skills as follows:

He mixed over a cup of meat spaghetti sauce (Classico) with several scoops of white rice, and then placed these ingredients into a large tupperware container. Next, he scrambled up some eggs and laid them on top of the rice/sauce combo. Last but not least, for the final layer he added quite a bit of iceberg lettuce.

It made for an attractive display, from a color-scheme perspective, but not terribly edible to my American sensibilities. Does this even remotely resemble any Japanese dish? I would be very interested to know. If not, then maybe I will work on publishing a Japanese Foreign Exchange Student cook book. I would need Sara Lee's permission to refer to their Ballpark Franks as often as I will need to.

Didn't you say these were agri-food majors or something? That is I think the grossest yet, and thats following a long chain of gross.

Ya, they are agricultural students. Ryo works with rice, and Yuki wants to work with Bonsai.

Maybe they should be working with hotdogs, tortillas and cheese.

Peeeee-yuke.
