This Month in 給食: September Edition

After those long summer days, I forgot just how good and how terrible school lunch can be. The month of September certainly had its ups and does in terms of the food. I ate, for the first time, carrot jelly and actually enjoyed it – although it mostly tasted like orange. There were several dishes that I struggled to eat, but felt obligated to do so because I was eating lunch with my students who are told they are not allowed to have left overs. Still, I can’t complain for how cheap each meal is and it saves me getting up earlier to make two bentos.

Now, onto those food pictures!

  1. I’m not sure the lunches look all that great–hope they taste better than they look–you have learned to eat a lot of new and unusual things.

    1. this past month actually had some of the better lunches – if you can believe that. Still won’t touch a tomato with a ten-foot-pole though. Maybe you will get lucky the next time you visit and you can try some lunches?!

      Also, October/November also seem like OK times for you to visit. Not hot at all.

  2. Every time you post about school lunches, I can’t help but remember your experience with their ‘okonomiyaki’. Some of those look kind of… not good. Though there is a surprising amount of variety. Not necessarily GOOD variety, but variety nonetheless.
