What's For Lunch?

Everyday is classroom lunch day at Trinity. My students enjoy a Jim Weiss story on CD while munching on their lunches. It amused me to look around the room yesterday and compare the typical mainland lunch to a typical Hawaiian lunch.
                Mainland Mainstay- Peanut butter and jelly

              Hawaiian equivalent - Mana Pua

              Mainland Mainstay - Chicken Noodle Soup

              Hawaiian equivalent - Miso Soup

              Mainland Mainstay - Turkey Sandwich

              Hawaiian equivalent - Sushi Handroll

              Mainland Snackfare - Potato Chips

              Hawaiian equivalent - Norikake (dried seaweed)

              I can't tell you how cute my little students are as they eat these Asian treats. The staff are equally Asian in their food selections. It's not at all unusual to see a staff member eating their lunch with chopsticks in the staff lounge.
