There is some discussion over the suitability of a "Japanese" menu at Sidwell Friend's (what a name) school today, the day that Japan attacked the U.S. relentlessly.
They're millionaire government brats feeding at the public trough to the tune of hundreds of thousands a year, but WUSA needs a new culinary editor.
Sidwell Friends School's website shows the menu for Wednesday December 7th, 2011, the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, as an Asian food day.
Pearl Harbor Day is usually a time of remembrance for Americans. On December 7th, 1941, thousands of Americans died in a sneak attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor Navy base in Hawaii. An attack that thrust the U.S. into World War II.
What's more disturbing is that the Washington ComPost appears to have pulled the article as of 10 AM.
UPDATE: The article was back within ten minutes of this entry. Proving my point is why I take the screenshots...
Why ? Who do they serve besides the CIA ? Oh, I just answered my own question as to who got them to pull them menu for a former employee.
However, most people will recognize that this food isn't Japanese and the other countries didn't attack the USA on 7 December 1941.
Asian Mushroom Soup... self -explanatory
Oriental Noodle Salad... self -explanatory
Classic Spinach Salad... Popeye
Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Strips... Japan
Szechuan Tofu & Veggies... China
Garlic Roasted Edamame... Japan, China, Hawaii
Vegetable Fried Rice... multiple countries
Fortune Cookies... Japan or China
Then there is the argument of the authenticity level of any of this cooking when consumed in the USA, because it's usually been adapted for the market.
