Published: July 21, 2019
This weekend the villagers got to have fun at restaurant and dance night! For restruant night we give them a special meal of food that isn't Japanese. This week the theme was Minnesotan food!
We had レストランナイト (れすとらんないと・resutorannaito・restaurant night) for dinner. 先生(せんせい・sensei・teacher) served Minnesotan food such as wild rice soup, tater tot hot dish, and jello salad for villagers. We enjoyed dinner on the patio. #morinoike #livethelanguage #languagelearning #languageimmersion #minnesota #minnesotafood #日本語を勉強します #japanese
After eating their fill of midwestern staples, the villagers had a dance night! They got to hang out while listening or dancing to Japanese music!
Today, the villagers got to relax with a later wake up time and no classes. Instead, they got to watch 時をかける少女 (ときをかけるしょうじょ・toki o kakeru shojo・The Girl who Leapt Through Time) and participate in activities about global warming and pollution during our 平和プロ（へいわぷろ・heiwa puro・Peace Program). For dinner, they had a Japanese style pancake called お好み焼き（おこのみやき・okonomiyaki)!
We had お好み焼き (おこのみやき・okonomiyaki・A Japanese-style pancake) for dinner. お好み(おこのみ・okonomi・)means ”how you like ” or ”what you like”, and 焼き (やき・yaki) means ”grill.” You can put whatever you want in okonomiyaki. Popular ingredients are thin pork belly, cabbage, and eggs. #languagelearning #languageimmersion #livethelanguage #japanese #okonomiyaki #お好み焼き #日本語を勉強します
