Right now, my mom is making eggs, and it’s called “tamagoyaki” A little bit Smash it to make it mushy I never made one I didn’t know it takes a long time to mix it. Have to mix it a lot of times That’s not a lot of egg Wait, another tiny egg… We’re doing it softly, mix it in wholly I think there’s a lot of pressure on her to
make the best egg. She gets nervous Then put it again When you eat it, it goes *makes sounds* in your mouth I can’t wait to eat it Wow! Does egg usually have maple syrup in it?
As an ingredient? No, we use sugar,
but we don’t have it so we used maple syrup …to make it yummy So what are you making next, Aiko? um… we’re making miso shiru… like soup My grandpa grew this spinach So what’s this here? This is tofu.
