Today’s school lunch: bread, fried battered basil marinated fish, winter melon soup, and macaroni salad. 

Great lunch today. The basil was a nice accent to the fish. I made a fish sandwich.

Today’s school lunch: wakame seaweed rice, spaghetti, canned tuna with pickled cucumbers and wakame seaweed, and a slice of watermelon.
Had the same lunch as Tuesday. We were supposed to have bread, but because of the typhoon yesterday, the bread wasn’t able to be delivered or something. So had rice instead. Some of the students must LOVE watermelon because they ate it down to the outer rind. A couple of the boys even ate the rind.

Today’s awesome school lunch: anago-don (sweet simmered eel rice bowl), nameko mushroom miso soup, and cabbage with sesame.

For some reason, there was excess portions today. There were enough leftover rice, eel, and soup for another four servings! I helped used to a second serving. Shouldn’t have because I was already from the first round.

Today’s expensive school lunch: bread, spaghetti, tuna with pickled cucumbers and wakame seaweed, and a slice of watermelon.

Watermelons aren’t exactly cheap in Japan. The lunch lady gave me an extra slice!! Woohoo!! Always pays to be friends with the lunch lady.

Today’s Tanabata school lunch: edamame rice, star-shaped croquette, slimy (star-shaped) okra soup, spinach with katsuobushi, and star jelly.

Today’s “win” school lunch: chicken curry pilaf, chicken katsu, potato and vegetable soup, and ice creaaaaaam!!

Today’s lunch is a play on words. Katsu can mean either “fried cutlet” or “to win/victory.” Tomorrow is the spring tournament. So they’re eating katsu (victory).

Today’s school lunch: pineapple bread, octopus and beans tomato soup… , and the usual pickled cabbage and cucumbers. 

I mainly ate the bread. I didn’t feel like stomaching the rest. There’s nothing wrong with the soup. I just think a tomato soup with octopus is plain weird.

I've wanted to be part of the JET Programme since I first heard of it in high school. It's been a long road but I finally got selected. I never blogged before. But I want to use this as my digital journal to record my experiences, feelings, thoughts and challenges. I hope, through my postings, others will learn more about Japan and the JET Programme along with me.
