What do they call English muffins in England?
In response to a news article about the fruit-and-vegetable-eating habits of Israelis, Raanana Ramblings well, rambles . . . riffs, really . . . about the fruit and vegetable habits in her house. Here is an “immigrant moment” highlight:
. . . . I mentioned Israeli salad earlier- that reminds me of the time we were at a party some friends were hosting- it was a buffet, and there were different salads displayed. I mentioned that the salat Yisraelit looked good.
One of the other partygoerss looked at me, amused. “You know, we don’t call it that-we just say salat.” I felt kind of silly- I hadn’t been in the country that long and didn’t realize that OF COURSE Israelis wouldn’t call their basic salad by the name given to it by foreigners in other countries! Doh!
