Elementary School Lunch: 12/15 - Chilly Cheesecake

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

Today was a bentou lunch day for our 5th and 6th graders, which means they were all required to bring a prepared lunch from home to school. This only occurs on designated days, and it always seems like with 200-odd less people to feed, the school tends to splurge on something or another. Today, it was cheesecake.

Our lunch was some fried wakasagi, a fish native to Hokkaido, with salad, minestrone soup, cocoa bread, and the aforementioned cheesecake. The salad was colorful with corn, cabbage, carrot, and spinach, and we topped it with sesame seed dressing. The soup itself was fab - tomato-based, with celery, parsley, potato, bits of bacon, pasta, beans, carrot, and onion. The cocoa bread went really well with the soup, and the cheesecake was a perfect note to put it all together.

Great Monday.
