this is so very authentic Japanese food.
I made a roast beef sub sandwich on homemade French
bread. The French bread is easy to make (for
those who have bread machines, at least) and so tasty!
I made all sizes of bread, from full-sized loaves to small hoagie-sized
rolls to buns just right for a bit of jelly.
Below the sandwich, from left to right, are grapes,
nori maki arare (rice
crackers wrapped in nori), usuyaki komaru "salad"
rice crackers), and amaika ("sweet squid"), which are wheat crackers
shaped sort of like squid tentacles and covered with
something sweet and crunchy. And they have some cuttlefish*
in 'em. You'd never know it by taste, though.
*Both cuttlefish and squid are "ika"
