Elementary School Lunch: 02/20 - Chicken Curry-Rice

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

I wasn't supposed to have lunch with students on Friday, but there was a bit of a schedule change. Since it's cold and flu season, my school has been on high alert, trying to make sure we don't have students getting sick needlessly. The class I had lunch with on Friday were actually supposed to eat with me on Wednesday, except there were five students absent that day, and as an added measure, they were all eating lunch in silence, with desks all separate from each other. By Friday though, that homeroom was back to 100% attendance and a regular lunch configuration. The kids were pretty happy about that.

It couldn't have landed on a better day, either, as we had chicken curry and rice for lunch, along with a seaweed salad. The curry had quail eggs, potato, carrot, onion, and edamame along with bits of chicken, of course. As for the salad, it was just a couple of different kinds of seaweed, with cabbage, spinach, carrot, and a sweet sort of vegetable dressing.

Curry is always great on a Friday.
