Some of the family came from out of town to visit this past weekend. As a treat, I prepared for them a special dish for breakfast. Both my mom and sister were like “Wow, this is pretty good. Where’d you learn it?”
Imagine their surprise, and my subsequent delight when I told them “From anime, of course.”
See, the dish I serve up for breakfast was my own cheap, knock-off imitation of the apple risotto Yukihira makes late in the first season of Shokugeki no Soma.
I almost literally ripped it from the episode itself, then added a couple twists of my own (mostly out of cheapness).
Risotto simmered in butter and apple juice plus apple bits, caramelized onion, bacon, and cinnamon/ banana for the sister, since she doesn’t eat pig.
Their acknowledgement of this was a great victory for me, as me mum has mentioned in the past that I could probably be doing other more productive things instead of watching anime.
This got me thinking, though… I’ll probs take this to the MAL forums, too, but we’ll start here. Has anyone else ever learned any valuable life skills and or lessons from anime? If so, what? I’m thinking I’ll turn this into a segment in one of the upcoming podcasts.
