za ne = c'est la vie

In the land of teaching, there are ups and downs. Today was a down day. I won't dwell on it, only to say it included mostly bored, sassy little shit six graders. And a second grade class completely overrun by two incredibly austistic children. Way to go Japan, just stick 'em in normal schools, maybe they'll pick up a word or two. Needless to say the school lunch was a nice way to end the day. The mackerel was succulent!

[clockwise from rice]

- rice (gohan ご飯)
- "miso" grilled Spanish mackerel (sawara no misoyaki さわらのみそ焼き)
- braised potatoes (jagaimo no kinpira itame じゃがいものきんぴら炒め)
- vegetables dressed w/soy broth (dashi shouyu ae だし醤油あえ)
- milk (gyuunuu 牛乳)
