Ramen is not hard to make, and the ingredients can be found in any store.
Same with okonomiyaki, donburi, miso soup, etc etc.

I agree, okonomiyaki would be good. Yaki-niku would be easy, too. For that, you would just grill some meat and vegetables and serve it with Japanese rice. Or go with Yaki-tori. Just grill some chicken. Gyoza would probably go over real well, but that wouldn't really be a 'main meal'.

Well Yuna sake adds flavor to it if you do not add it it will come up a bit bland to the taste, you know its just the same when you add white wine to saute veggies or making Italian food. But there might be a problem wiith your school policies and alchohol use you know how the Chicago burbs are! Here is something similiar to Yaki-tori but without the sake. It's called Yakisoba.

3 packages yakisoba noodles or boiled Chinese egg noodles
1 carrot
1/4 of a small cabbage
1/4 pound thinly sliced pork
1/3 cup yakisoba sauce / Worcestershire sauce
*(you can substitute the yakisoba sause with seasoning packages which come with yakisoba noodles )*

Beni-shoga (red pickled ginger)
Ao-nori (dried green seaweed)
vegetable oil for frying
How to Cook:

1.Cut the cabbage, carrot, and pork into bite sizes.
2.Heat oil in a large pan.
3.add cabbage, carrot, and pork in the pan and saute in high heat.
4.Add yakisoba noodles in the pan and stir-fry.
5.Put 1/3 cup of water in the pan and cover it with a lid.
5.Steam the noodles for a few minutes.
6.Take the lid off and add yakisoba seasoning or sauce.
7.Stir the noodles well and fry them for a few minutes.
8.Sprinkle ao-nori and beni-shoga over yakisoba before serving.

umm you should be able to feed 4 people maybe 5 if they dont eat alot with this recipe
Enjoy:p

I had no idea they put sake on the Yaki-tori. Is it in that "tare" sauce, or do they dip it in before they cook it? I just remember you could pick between sauce and salt. I'd just do it without it if you can figure out how to make the sauce. Maybe you can get your parents to do it since cooking it will burn off the alcohol, anyway.
