Elementary School Lunch: 04/18 - kinpira

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

 Today's lunch, though fulfilling at the time, didn't keep me full as long as usual. I was hungry again three hours later for some reason. I don't think it's because I left half the rice, either - I usually do that. Maybe roots and bamboo just don't keep hunger at bay.

The main dish was some hamburg steak (citrus and radish were used for the sauce on top), which had sauteed veggies on the side. The salad consisted of burdock, carrot, and what I assume is fried tofu with some sesame seeds mixed in. It was great, and I wish I'd had been able to grab seconds.

The soup had wakame, bamboo, tofu, spinach, onions, and mushroom. It was alright - I'm not that huge on wakame, but I do like bamboo and all the other flavors that were present there. We enjoyed it with some rice in its bentou box and of course, the milk I never drink (because that would be disastrous). Still though, a solid lunch.


Tomorrow, Saturday, I'll be working but it's a bentou day. I'll post pictures of bentous we've been getting. Monday we're off, so next week's lunch updates will start on Tuesday!
