Good morning, everyone. It’s Friday here in Japan and the sun has just crested over the hills. The temperature is 7 degrees (C) but it feels a lot colder. What’s even more upsetting is that the school refuses to turn on the heater.
Please excuse me while I slowly wither away inside.
This is a lunch I had two weeks ago. There’s rice and milk, the regular players, but let’s introduce the others.
- Stir fry – made from bean sprouts, a green vegetable (I can’t recall the name) and bacon. I had seconds, so it must have been tasty enough. Ashley Rating: 8/10
- Pineapple Jell-O (パインゼリー, pah-in zeh-ree) – This is pretty easy to understand. It’s pineapple flavored Jell-O that was, unfortunately, frozen before being served. I chuckled as the students complained that it was more like pineapple sherbert. Ashley Rating: 6/10
- Curry-flavored mabodofu (カレー麻婆豆腐, kah-reh mah-boh-dohfu) – Containing carrots, tofu, and various other vegetables with ground pork, this wasn’t as greasy feeling as its restaurant counterpart. With the rice, though, it tasted bland to me. Some would swear that it’s the best school lunch has to offer. Ashley Rating: 7/10
