Elementary School Lunch: 09/17 - soboro gohan

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

Another school week has begun! Today's main dish was new to our lunch trays, though there's a familiar miso soup accompanying it with some rice and fruits for dessert.

The main dish had some scrambled eggs with shredded tuna, comprising what they call soboro gohan, which could be made with pork or chicken or other meats as well. On the side there, you can see three kyoho grapes, which are seasonal. One thing I learned after I just popped them in my mouth is that Japanese people usually peel off its skin to eat it. Apparently, it also has a big seed, but none of mine appeared to have one. The good news is, there's nothing wrong with eating the skin like I did. I mean, I just looked at it like - grapes are grapes.

Veggies/components I noticed in the miso soup today: potatoes, pork, carrot, onion, green onion, and more.
