Fulfilling A Dream

Sep 16

Today’s school lunch: steamed mackerel with okra, potatoes and shrimp balls, burdock with shishito peppers, hijiki seaweed with ground meat, and miso soup. 

The okra was old and tough. Because the hijiki was with meat, I think this was the first time I actually like the hijiki side.

Today’s school lunch: rice, curry, fried fish, stir-fried bell peppers, stir-fried eggplant, and pickled cabbage.

So far, the good thing about the pickles at these schools is that they’re not sour.

Today’s school lunch: rice, sweet soy sauce simmered fish, tofu lees, and okra soup. 

I ate with 2nd-graders today. Maybe they thought I eat as much as one too…

Today’s school lunch: rice, fried chicken with scallion sauce, stir-fried cuttlefish, steamed sweet potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and a simple clear vegetable soup. 

My standards have gone down, I don’t know why I’m enjoying this cold lunch. The cuttlefish was a bit old and fishy though.

Dorito’s Gourmet - Garlic & Sea Treasure.
This was not good. At first, there’s an overwhelming taste of corn. Then the taste of dehydrated shrimp hits the palette, with a weird sweet but salty soy sauce flavor that burns my tongue, followed by a stinky after taste of garlic. My stomach is churning now.

Today’s school lunch: bread, yakisoba, soy sauce pickled cucumbers, and a frozen tangerine.
The milk comes in a glass bottle. So cool! It’s like those old movies. It was creamy and yummy. However, being glass, they’re breakable. While bringing the used bottles back to the lunch room, a student accidentally dropped a glass from the tray.

Today’s school lunch: rice, shishamo fish with green onions, boiled pumpkin, boiled cabbage, beef and bell pepper stir-fry, and wakame seaweed soup.

Other than being cold, it’s not bad.
