やきめしや クリスマス いろ プレゼント

I traveled to Iowa for Christmas. Instead of eating only American food, I decided to cook some fried rice and chicken karaage. First, I cut up broccoli, carrots and green onions. Then, I fried eggs and cut the eggs up too. Next, I mixed the eggs and vegetables together with rice. After that, I fried everything on the stove. For the chicken karaage, I first cut the chicken into small pieces. Then, I covered the chicken with a karaage mix. After that, I heated some oil and fried the chicken in the oil until it was brown. Finally, I was ready to eat. Thanks to a recommendation from a friend at the Japan America Society, I decided to try eating the chicken karaage with grated daikon. I think it was a success. After I finished eating, I packed up the remaining food in small plastic bags for future individual meals. The meals were put in the freezer to be frozen for later.
