October 11th, Thursday:
- Udon with Meat and Mountain Veggies Sent from Shimukappu (Butterbur, Fernbrake, Bamboo Shoot, Winter Mushroom, Signorina Mushroom, Green Onion, Pork)
- Furano Minced Meat Dumplings
- Furano Wheat Kabocha Cookies
- Kcal: 708
Again, “furusato kyuushoku”. Warabi (fernbrake) is more commonly translated as “bracken” in English, but since the term bracken immediately brings up the image of “bracken water”–not a good thing–I feel fernbrake has a more appetising sound. Signorina Mushrooms are “maitake” in Japanese, which means something like twirling mushroom. The cookies were handmade apparently… they skipped the factory.
