It's Veg again! Our guests had an important visitor to their town today. It was the Queen and so they didn't go to lunch at school.
I can reveal that the best lunch for crabs is......Venison! You were right more crabs went to the bacon but they fell. The crabs on the venison hugged it with all their legs and stayed on. My brother caught the biggest crab so we will have to go back.
Venison-13 + a fish
Dad had to say a lot of 'colders' and 'warmers' before I found where this dinner came from.
It is from the Republic of Maldives (1 minute 20s) which I found in the sea near India. There are lots of islands in the Maldives. Laura sent in the photo and said,
'Here's a picture of school lunch that some of my students have to eat
(I'm a teacher) in the Maldives. It's not strictly their lunch, but an
afternoon snack. There's too many children for our classrooms, so the
older children come in between 6.45am until 12.30pm, then the younger
children come in from 1pm until 5.20pm.
The noodles are the same as what you have in the UK (my home
country!), the triangle is called a bajiyaa and the ball is a gula,
both are a mixture of tuna, rice and coconut, but they taste very
different to each other. Mothers prepare them fresh everyday and then
bring them to school at breaktime.'
I like noodles but I am not sure about the gulas. I can't imagine how they taste but they look crunchy. Maybe I should try and make them for my lunch. It sounds like a really busy school. There are nearly 2000 children at the school in Malawi I am going to visit. That is a lot.
We had some visitors this week from the radio. They had some soup I made for lunch but I forgot to ask them to rate it. The programme will be on this weekend. The weather is good so Dad says tomorrow we will shear the sheep!
