I recently applied for a job that would begin after I complete service in Samoa. I’m concerned that they will think that I don’t have enough international experience. I think tonight’s dinner says otherwise.
It’s cool and damp so I’m going with comfort food. A tuna noodle casserole. I don’t have an oven, so I’m cooking it ever so slowly on my hotplate. How international are the ingredients?
Pasta – made in Mexico, distributed by the United States. For $2.40 USD. How can that happen?
Mushroom soup – thank you Campbell’s of New Jersey.
Tuna – courtesy of a company in Fiji. $1.40 USD a can. Seems cheap to me given that someone had to catch it, clean it, can it and ship it.
Cheese – from the happy cows in New Zealand.
Pot to cook it in? Made in China. Canned tomatoes that I’m serving on the side? Micronesia.
I bought everything in Samoa. That means my dinner involves food and products from six countries delivered to a seventh country. If that’s not international, I don’t know what is.
