Mmmm. I want to eat at your house. But what really caught my eye is the phrase "stalks are as fibrous as sugar cane." I have never, ever seen sugar cane in my entire life, so I will have to take your word for it that it is fibrous. What part of the world were you living in when you made sugar cane's acquaintance?

Thank you, Kathy! Sugar cane grows on Okinawa. I remember someone bringing some to school (probably for show-and-tell, and, in this case, show-and-tell-and-gnaw) many decades ago when I lived there.
