Milk Maid

February 26th, Tuesday:


  • Consomme Soup(Chinese Cabbage, Onion, Carrot, Ham)
  • Cod Roe Spaghetti (Spaghetti, Shrimp, Bell Pepper, Cod Roe)
  • Breaded Bean Patty
  • Milk Make (Chocolate)
  • Butter Bread
  • Milk
  • Kcal: 815

“Milk Make” makes its appearance. Squeeze it into the milk carton through the straw hole, but before you do this, take a sip of the milk first to prevent extra milk from spilling out. Then put in the milk make, mix it well, and drink it up.

Today’s breaded bean patty had a slightly sweet taste. It wasn’t overly popular with the boys. Previously, when we have had cod roe spaghetti, there were more eggs I felt. I don’t know where the name for the chocolate milk syrups comes from: literally it is “Mirumeiku” so I thought that sounded like “milk make”. But I don’t know. It comes in a tube that looks just like the tubes of chocolate you can buy for cake decorating. In fact, I wonder if it isn’t practically the same thing. That said, I can’t drink milk, and thus I gave my milk make away, and didn’t drink it.

Speaking of milk and its derivatives, yesterday I ate a sweet. It looked like it was sweet potato sweet, but actually under the sweet potato was a great deal of whipped cream. I should have just thrown the whole sweet out when I discovered this, but no: I still ate it. So  last night and today I have a very unhappy stomach ache. WHY DO COMPANIES MAKE INEDIBLE CREAM SWEETS SO DELICIOUS LOOKING!!!! ~(>_<~)

July 17th, Tuesday:

  • Consommé (Cabbage, Onion, Carrot, Ham)
  • Spaghetti Dressed with Meat Sauce (Spaghetti, Pork, Onion, Green Bean)
  • Fried Corn Patty
  • Top Sliced Roll
  • Milk

The roll today was debatably supposed to be filled with the Spaghetti and eaten like a sandwich, some what reminiscent of yakisoba bread.

BTW, we made mini pizza’s using gyoza skins and caramel custard pudding in home economics today.

Scotch Egg

June 26th, Tuesday:

  • Colourful Chowder (Red and Yellow Bell Pepper, Corn, Onion, Ham, Broccoli)
  • European-Style Potatoes and Bacon (Potato, Bacon, Onion, Edamame)
  • Scotch Egg
  • Black Bread
  • Milk

Recently, there was a new discovery in Turkey. Many tools that substantiated the making of dairy products were discovered. They were 8500 years old.  Why don’t you become interested in history of zymotic foodstuffs?

Concerning today’s lunch, scotch eggs are really wonderful. They are so pretty and handy! I don’t eat meat at home, but if I did, I would like to try to make such a charming dish as scotch eggs. Today’s school lunch scotch egg was way overcooked, but I imagine that can’t be helped due to safety regulations. The chowder was quite nice too. It had several types of western vegetables, tasted quite bell pepper like and didn’t even given me a stomachache. Plus black bread and chowder are just a really nice mix. I love potatoes, so of course I also like today’s potato and bacon dish. I suppose it is European style because of the bright red tomato based (?)  sauce  used. Anyways, potatoes and edamame are a good mix. Thinking about it, I suppose I am just fond of Japanese style haole dishes. Yum! Yum!

Of the new discovery in Turkey, you can read more about it this anthropology article (bottom half). It isn’t very detailed, but still interesting. All humans were unable to drink milk (ie: lactose intolerant, like me!) back in the day. But this discovery in Turkey found that even though we couldn’t drink milk, we still raised cattle and then processed their milk into non-lactose products, like cheese and yogurt. That’s pretty awesome.
