Chapter 115 – Still Winter


If you want to ask me about the food I want to eat during winter, my answer is mochi .

Mochi .

Steam it then pound and pound and pound it .

Mochi .

I want to eat mochi, I want to eat a lot of mochi .

Mochi, mochi, mochi .

Even though I only have a small amount of glutinous rice, I can’t call myself a human if I don’t make mochi!

First try in steaming, failure .

Kuh .

Second try, I somehow succeed!

However, the texture is somewhat off .

Did I pound them the wrong way?

Or is it because of rhythm?

Or maybe I don’t have the right strength?

On my third try, I told my centaur errand maid to have the minotaur pound it for me .

The result was great .

Sugar soy sauce is exquisite .

Sugar soybean flour is not bad too .

Let’s increase the glutinous rice field next year .

It is a good crop that we can preserve .

If you want to ask me about the food I want to eat during winter, my answer is zensai .

TN: Zensai is mashed red bean sweetened with sugar that is usually used as stuffing in dumplings such as mochi .

Boil azuki beans and add sugar .

And add a little bit of salt .

It is difficult to balance the taste .

After my seventh try, I finally tasted the taste I’m looking for .

I’ll stuff this to the mochi .

Perfect zensai!

「Oh, to stuff it in mochi… . great innovation . 」

「Mochi is already delicious, to think that it will be better . 」

It was eaten up in no time .

If you want to ask me about the food I want to eat during winter, my answer is … . . what?

Ehoumaki?

TN: A sus.h.i.+ roll composed of seven ingredients . Its seven ingredients signify luck .

As for nori… . . I ordered them from Michael-san .

I have rice here too .

And vinegar .

For other ingredients… . . the stuffing is usually vegetables .

How about using omelet… .

Has anyone tried this before?

「Is that your new dish?」

「Yeah」

Originally, it should be cut to several pieces first before eating but they are already eating it without cutting .

「It has a mysterious taste . 」

「It’s not that different from onigiri . 」

「Since we can change the stuff inside… . . I think this has limitless potential . 」

It was popular .

Speaking of ehomaki, I remembered setsubun .

TN: Setsubun is the day before the beginning of spring in j.a.pan . Ehoumaki is eaten for good luck during setsubun .


Setsubun .

…… .

It will be impossible for me to sprinkle beans during that day now since food is presently scarce .

TN: There is a custom of throwing roasted soybean during setsubun . Too many TN, I should have just put a link .

After that… . . valentine?

Chocolate .

Chocolate is made from cacao .

I can raise cacao using the AFT but…

I don’t know how to make chocolate from cacao .

Ah… . but, I want to try eating chocolate .

When spring comes, let’s raise cacao .

I can connect with everyone using food .

Because there are a lot of people who were not able to taste the food I made in my house, I decided to make it again a couple more times .

Mochi was popular .

「It can block your throat . 」

Experiment during the winter .

When the weather is good, I asked Rasuti to drop something from a great height .

The thing that was dropped is falling .

On its way down, a sling cloth spread open .

It’s a parachute .

The falling object’s falling speed decreases as the parachute opens .

I made sure that the crate has enough weight . I even put gla.s.s bottles in it to check if it won’t break .

Gran Maria was surprised with my experiment .

「Village chief, what’s that?」

「It’s a parachute . I’m testing if it will still be in good condition if Rasuti or Hakuren drops it . 」

「Drop… . . are you planning on things being dropped like that?」

「If it’s an emergency . Maa, I also want to try it on people, not just on luggage . 」

「I think it is okay for luggage but it is too dangerous for a person . 」

「It will not be completely safe but it will be better than nothing . 」

「It will not be completely safe but it will be better than nothing . 」

「There is a magic that can control descend . 」

「… . . I can’t use it . 」

「I’m sorry . 」

「Maa, I will not suddenly try it on people . After I’m done with several experiments, I’ll ask those who can fly . 」

「Then I am relieved . 」

Rasuti, who’s flying back, gave her review from the sky .

「It will look great if it can scatter a lot of roses . 」

「……」

In any case, that is also an improvement to the parachute .

Zabuton is still hibernating so I can’t do any more than this .

Let’s wait for spring .

「Hnn?」

The wine slime strangely came .

………

Is it alright?

It replied indicating it’s okay .

「I pray for good luck . 」

I took the lid of the crate and saluted the slime . The wine slime entered the wooden crate .

As for the lid… . would it be good for it to be an open type that you can see what’s inside?

I’m afraid that the parachute will not open if it is too folded .

「Rasuti, can you take it like this and fly again?」

「Alright . 」

「Gran Maria, stand by at low alt.i.tude . If any unlikely event happens, save the wine slime . 」

「Affirmative . 」

And, it was dropped again at the same height .

The unfolded parachute immediately opens and its falling speed slows down .

… . I feel like I’m watching a balloon .

The wine slime is safe as it lands on the ground after enjoying a few minutes of floating .

The impact is also minimal so it looks like it doesn’t have any particular problem .

The wine slime looks joyful too .

「… . it looks like it had some fun . 」

「right…」

Gran Maria and Rasuti are also looking at it .

…… .

Now, in case of emergency, it will be fine for two people to enjoy this .

TN: Thus, the extreme sports skydiving was born in that world .

「It’s sooo good!」

「The feeling of slowly descending is a fresh and pleasant experience . 」

「However, it is a little embarra.s.sing to wear parachute since you need to wear it on your shoulders and thigh . 」

「I agree . Is there any other method to wear it?」

After hearing that conversation, I asked Zabuton to make trousers for those who’ll use a parachute .

Oh, it’s the wine slime’s turn again .

Let’s let it be as long as it doesn’t cut in the line .

The piled up snow does not hinder the movement of the centaurs .

The piled up snow does not hinder the movement of the centaurs .

「Do not force yourselves to travel if there is a snowstorm . 」

「We know . There’s no problem on our end ah… . . it is a bit scary to cross the bridge with the snow piled up . It would be great if it is a little wider . 」

「Hnn… . is it? However, I’m worried that monsters and demon beasts will cross the bridge if we make it wider . 」

「Monsters and demon beasts… . now that you say it, that’s possible . 」

「You’re pa.s.sing through it every day . If it is inconvenient, let’s think of something else to fix the issue . Since we can’t widen it, how about making a handrail?」

「Handrail? Certainly, we will be saved by that . Presently, I’m a little afraid of slipping there since the snow has piled up . 」

「Then, let’s go with that . Carry me there on a sunny day . 」

「I hear and obey . 」

And so, I rode the centaur to go to the bridge .

Along with us are three centaurs, I a.s.signed them with the position of liaison officers .

We are also accompanied by Kuro and ten of his pups as guards .

Half of those pups were just born this year .

「Are the three of you enough to regularly contact everyone on time? When you started, there were two of you then it increases up to five… . 」

「Yes . After various trials, we concluded that three is the best number . 」

「I see . But don’t push yourselves too hard . 」

「As you wish . 」

We arrived at the bridge .

Although the weather is nice, snow is piled up on the bridge with traces of centaurs coming back and forth .

「It is a wooden bridge so we’re afraid to use fire magic to melt the snow . 」

「Hahaha, it’s good that you didn’t try . 」

The bridge is a trunk of a tree with planed top .

If I want to add handrail on it… . . I have to use nails .

Good thing I brought nails . Now let’s make handrails .

… . .

I entered the forest and looked for a big tree .

This one is about three meters in diameter .

It’s length is also enough considering the width of the river .

I cut the tree then process the timber .

I shaved the log making it U-shape .

Wait, this is not a handrail, this is a side wall .

「How about this?」

「It’s not bad but it will limit the visibility . The height is also… . 」

「I see . 」

I cut the height of the sidewall to make it half its current height and bore holes too .

With this, even if it rains or snows, it will not acc.u.mulate water .

I opened some drainage holes on the side walls and make a gentle slope on the surface of the bridge too .

「How about this . 」

「Looks great . Thank you very much . 」

「Hahaha, good . Since you are the liaison officers, inform others about the new bridge . 」

「Affirmative . 」

The three liaison centaurs crossed the bridge and started running .

「We spent some time here . Let’s go home . 」

I was urged by my centaur errand maid and when we were about to return… . .

「It seems like the kuros are driving away some prey . 」

I was urged by my centaur errand maid and when we were about to return… . .

「It seems like the kuros are driving away some prey . 」

Even the pups who were just born this year are doing their best .

It looks like the prey they are chasing is something I haven’t seen yet .

Is that a deer?

But looking at it at my angle, it looks ferocious… .

Ah, it’s action is also ferocious .

Though it was cornered, it counterattacked but the pups evaded it .

Looking at it, it’s charging towards me now .

My centaur errand maid panicked .

I transformed the AFT into a hoe .

And plowed the neck of the ferocious deer killing it .

Kuro barked at me as if praising me .

「Ahahaha . Bleed it then take it home with you . 」

To unexpectedly secure food, I chuckled .

「It’s a panic caribou . 」

「Yeah . 」

The oni maids and the civil servant girls all have serious faces .

「Am I wrong to hunt it?」

「No… . . it’s just pretty rare . It’s a demon beast so of course, you can hunt it… . The most valuable part is its horn… . 」

Because I used the hoe form of the AFT against it, it’s head, along with its horn, turned to fertilizer .

「Sorry but safety is the priority . 」

It will be bad if we got hurt if we deal with it the wrong way .

「We know that but… . it is said that the horn is very tasty . 」

… . Horn, you can eat that?

「I haven’t eaten one yet but those who have eaten it praises it highly . 」

「Could it be that it was evaluated as such because it is rare and has a strange taste?」

Generally known as distinctiveness taste system .

「Probably」

The panic caribou meat was delicious but taste normal .

It became a matter of concern so it has become panic caribou hunting day on sunny day .

The angels and the kuros were heavily mobilized and they luckily hunted one had on the seventh day .

Horns were secured .

It seems like it should be crushed into powder then boil it to make a soup .

We did just that and tried it .

It really was tasty enough for me to be impressed .

It is tastier than the meat .

This is surprising .

However, no matter how much we enter the forest after that, we did not encounter another panic caribou .

Kuh .

Only the memory of its taste was left .

How mean of you, panic caribou .
