June 14th, Thursday:
- Fried Udon (Udon Noodle, Pork, Squid, Shrimp, Cabbage, Carrot, Onion)
- Steamed Dumpling
- Sweet Potato Sticks
One of the promises of good table manners is to not chew with your mouth open, because the very unpleasant “kuchakucha” sound. On the internet, this sound is described as “kucharaa”.
Today, I didn’t have school lunch, so I made a bento instead. What is pictured is the steam rice and takuan pickles that I packed. As okazu (side dishes) I packed last night’s chikuwa-jaga, ie: potatoes and chikuwa simmered in shoyu and mirin, and a daifuku mochi. I love daifuku mochi. They were on sale last night, so a package of eight cost a little about 60 yen. So cheap!
