Elementary School Lunch (Kyuushoku) in October

It’s that time of the month again… Now that October is over, I have a compilation of October’s school lunches. If you didn’t notice, we also got trays this month! My Friday school already has trays, and it looks like my main school is following suite.

So, I teach at two different schools. One is strictly an elementary school, and one is a much smaller specialty school that has elementary, middle school, and high school students in the same buildings. The posts I make are from my elementary-only school.

Both schools are under the same Board of Education, but in different “blocks”, so they get the same school lunches, just on different days. This means that I’ll usually eat the same thing two times a week. It’s interesting to see the different takes each school cafeteria has on the dishes. I won’t comment on which school has a better cook, though!

Cucumber salad, chicken and quail eggs, and rice with carrots and mushrooms

Chicken karaage (fried chicken), sesame salad, and rice with bamboo shoots
