School Lunch

Adult portion:

2 Shoyu* Chicken thighs, 1 large scoop sticky rice, puddle of shoyu sauce, canned peaches, homemade dinner roll, carrots & corn, and a carton of chocolate milk.

They offered two rolls, but I can’t eat all of what they’d already given me, so I said no thanks.

*Shoyu Sauce is Hawaii’s version of soy sauce. It is thick and has a sweeter, smokier flavor then what you are likely used to.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Brig — I added a link to the post that has a mail order site for shoyu. Aloha Brand seems to be the choice of most local restaurants. Plus, it’s the only brand I’ve tasted.

    Mumma — it’s fermented liquid salt –but the base is soy juice ….

  2. WOW! You guys make out waaaaaaaaaaay better than we do! I usually brought lunch from home… our school lunches are … disgusting.

  3. Brian — it is. Despite that, the kids usually eat it.

    Melli — yeah, school lunch used to be part of my weight loss plan. As you can see, that won’t work here!

  4. Strange…I clicked on the comments link and it took me to the proper post…but the links where for the “center for nude erections” post. What exactly is in that sauce huh, cuz it surely made the computer trip out!

  5. What no tater tots or cardboard pizza? Are we sure Hawaii is actually part of the United States? Thanks for your offer to help with my technical issue, I tried e-mailing you from your link but it keeps bouncing back.

  6. Polona — it was too much. I didn’t finishe it, but it was quite yummy.

    Nessa — delish.

    SN — what reader do you use? I’ve never heard of getting drunk on soy sauce.

    Kat — they have never served me tater tots. I don’t care much for the pizza, but mostly because it is plain cheese, not because it’s cardboard.
