Suiton Dumpling Soup

May 16th, Wednesday:

  • Suiton Dumpling Soup (Dumpling, Bean Curd, Tsuto Surimi, Carrot, Daikon Radish, Green Onion)
  • Egg Bound Satsuma-age (Satsuma-age, Onion, Burdock, Green Bean, Egg)
  • Simply Stewed Chicken Drumette
  • Rice
  • Milk

Eggs include not only protein, but also Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E. This is one of the great characteristics of eggs, as compared to fish and meat.

The soup was decidedly delicious, with a thick but not creamy consistency. However, it very sadly lacked even one dumpling.
(* ̄m ̄) As a side note, I am confused about the difference between tsuto surimi and naruto surimi. Naruto is defined by it’s red swirl and flower-like shape, but tsuto also has that. I wish I knew what kanji “tsuto” is written with. As for the chicken drumette, I have to take Emperor Temmu’s position on the subject.


Rice Dumpling Soup

April 23rd, Monday:

  • Rice Dumpling Soup (Dumplings, Carrot, Chicken, Tsuto Surimi, Burdock, Chinese Cabbage, Green Onion)
  • Simmered Shrimp and Mini Fried Tofu Mix (Fried Tofu, Shrimp, Edamame, Daikon Radish)
  • Pumpkin Croquette
  • Seaweed Rice
  • Milk

Note: The yellow colour of pumpkin, as well as of carrots, comes from beta carotene. This vegetable is full of vitamins like vitamin B1, B2, and C.
