Really needs good reliable presentation of how it supposed to be - established. What’s going around is all too arranged or deviated.

Choumicha is the Goddess of Couscous

Thanks! 

And there was a Japanese girl who worked as an assistant for Choumicha in Morocco for some years - and she has blog pages touching on diverse cooking culture Morocco’s people have. 

example: http://green.ap.teacup.com/happyeveryday/400.html

Here she is briefly reporting about how nomadic people in desert (Amazigh?) cooks a goat without a pot or pan - using stomach of the animal as cooking ware.

I see no sign of Islamophobia or Arab-phobia amongst ranks of Corporate America.

Nah I suppose they need this part of the world for ‘business’.

I really want this topic to have bit more developed discussion and - actually result in beneficial? programs. 

Those corporations PR or cultural PR unit - customer relations - should develop something about de-spelling crudest stereotypes and myths etc. 

Thus reblogged. 

I still can’t word this idea neatly (but why).

akio replied to your post: there’s some twisted irony in American statehood…

Really? I thought it was based on mapping frontiers (native occupied land) westward, projecting ownership, and sending in young George Washington to survey, then fight with French and etc, then independence from UK became the hot topic.

notice I said “sentiments”

what I meant is that they rejected the British empire’s imperial domination of their colony (which was actually super minimal from how I understand it) and then turned around and, yeah, the rest is history 

Hmm. But ‘impulse’ for ‘making it big with easy/simple/one scheme’ was there though. How to rake in big wad of cash. Funny thing is those rich people’s kids came to have extremely well-read and creative and passionate person like Jefferson. 

Japan suffered from ‘estate/land speculation’ - twice, in 60s and then 80/90s. Basically destroyed whole national wealth and morale. 

And then I witnessed America’s this estate bubble craze - so while I read early American history, I tend to notice how ‘Grab those large lands and then we can sell it later for new arrivals (farmers)’ - how rich Americans were into those ‘scheme’ - 

and actually, Washington etc became relatively large land owners and his descendants still own and live in those lands George owned. 

I wonder American public might not be well-informed about that. 

Or I’m just so traumatized by this ‘estate speculation’ hooks people and then how ruinous the result - people’s morale towards work/economy, and how all governing and business institutions also become addicted to how easily giant amount of money can be made from estate sector.

:( i wasn’t allowed to eat white bread or sugary cereal too i liked rasin bran and cornflakes. wow must be the biggest troll ever.

Haha Raisin Bran and Cornflakes were among the sweeter ones I could eat too!

Same here, I grew up on oatmeal, puffed rice, and cheerios. I got to add honey onto it on Fridays as a treat.

Awe honey on Fridays!

Modern Japan has lost any idea about what’s for breakfast. It has become an unapproachable subject.

Wait so the general population doesn’t eat breakfast? Most adults here seem not to, but children generally do.

Reality is Japanese rice takes 1 hour (or more) to cook properly - at least. That means - for modern life style, that’s not really doable in busy morning. 

So we switched to bread (toast, and Japan-ized pastries. Now mostly copied by Chinese bakeries via Hong Kong people.) 

But somehow bread is not really - food - for us. It’s an awkward, unfitting snack.

So it’s a - fairly messy and uneasy situation. 

Though we just shut up and eating bread :(

Green beans as salad food is a big thing in Morocco.

Like my ignorance deserves punitive act  … 
All I know is 40% of population engages in farming, at dirt cheap income (faming only makes up like 10%? of GDP), rainfall drastically affects crop yield every year, and unemployment and trade deficit issue is structurally linked with Morocco’s agri-sector … (along with Western Sahara being part of agri-business growth strategy?) 
Never knew green beans grow everywhere in the world though. Wonder it’s traditional crop or otherwise.
