I quickly secure the ingredients for today’s use and return to the kitchen.

I receive another introduction to the kitchen. It’s similar to yesterday’s review.

“Well then, let’s start making it right away.”

I’m going to make the steamed sweet potato bread that Demon King-sama requested. I will use the same ingredients and utensils as yesterday.

The difference is that I’m making a smaller quantity, and there is someone next to me doing the same actions. While teaching them because it’s easy, I continue with the cooking. 

They were talking about making several desserts that go well with meat dishes, but it seems that using a steamer for snacks is new to them. We proceed cautiously, checking each step.

“Is this size okay for the sweet potatoes?”

“As long as they are cooked through, it’s fine even if they are slightly larger.”

“Is this the right amount of milk?”

“Yes, that’s perfect.”

It took more time than yesterday, but cooking with someone else is enjoyable. I plate the finished ones.

I hand the plate with a small mountain of steamed bread to the two of them.

“Please put Migi-san and Hidari-san’s portions on here as well.”

“No!”

“It’s not appropriate to serve it to Demon King-sama before it’s perfect!”

It’s a strong refusal. They must have inherited their strong insistence from their master.

Like they used to do, I won’t force them to do something they don’t want to. But I have an alternative suggestion.

“Then, how about exchanging what I made with what you made?”

“Exchange?” 

“I made some for Demon King-sama, and I made some for Migi-san and Hidari-san. I’ll give them one by one, so please give me one of the ones you made.”

“But what we made might not be delicious. . .”

“But I can only give feedback on what I’ve eaten. Let me give you my feedback.”

“I see. In that case, please!”

They are handed to me, and the steamed bread that they made for the first time is placed on my plate.

“Well then, we’ll prepare the tea, so Daili-san, please go to Demon King-sama.”

“I’ll be right back.”

“Take care.”

Today as well, I am seen off to the kitchen’s exit, and I head towards the king’s chamber, rolling the kitchen wagon. Demon King-sama seems to have been waiting eagerly.

When I open the door, he is standing right in front of me. He couldn’t wait until it was brought to the throne.

“Can I eat now?!”

“Please go ahead. The ones on the top tier are all for Demon King-sama.”

“Wow.”

Demon King-sama chews on the steamed bread while standing. He happily eats with his cheeks puffed up. He looks just like a squirrel.

Perhaps sensing that Demon King-sama is eating near the entrance, a chair and table are quickly prepared.

The tea is ready, and Demon King-sama’s lovely tea time begins.

“Hey, Daili, what kind of food is sweet potato?”

“It’s a vegetable that grows underground. The skin is purple, and the inside is yellow. When cooked, it becomes sweet, so it goes well as a snack too.” 

“Isn’t it a fruit?! It’s so sweet. . .”

With wide eyes, he stares at the steamed bread. In Demon King-sama’s mind, sweet things seem to equal fruits.

Come to think of it, there were many snacks made with vegetables in my previous life, but they are not commonly seen in this world.

If I search, I might find sweet potatoes, but at least I haven’t seen them yet. Judging from his reaction, it seems that Demon King-sama doesn’t know about them either.

“There are plenty of sweet things made with vegetables. Besides sweet potatoes, corn is a vegetable that goes well with steamed bread!”

“Corn! I’ve heard that corn soup is delicious.”

“I made corn potage for today’s meal, and it was so delicious that I had three helpings. I think there is corn in the pantry, so shall we make corn steamed bread tomorrow?”

“Corn steamed bread. . .It sounds delicious.”

“By the way, corn is not only delicious in steamed bread, but it’s also delicious to eat boiled corn as it is.”

I demonstrate the gesture of eating corn while still attached to the cob, and Demon King-sama’s throat moves significantly.

If there is soy sauce, it can also be made into grilled corn, but I will check later if there is something similar.

“I want to eat both!”

“Then, I’ll bring you corn steamed bread and boiled corn tomorrow.”

“I’m looking forward to it! By the way, Daili. Aren’t you going to wear the clothes I prepared?”

“Clothes?” 

I tilt my head, wondering what he’s talking about.

What comes to mind are the clothes that seemed to belong to someone and were stored in the closet in large quantities.

“I told them to put them in the closet, but were the sizes and preferences not suitable?”

“Weren’t those left behind by the previous person? There were quite a few of them, and they all looked expensive. . .”

“I prepared them for Daili. Since I didn’t know her preferences, I instructed to gather various things. However, I apologize that they are all ready-made products because there was no time. . .”

“It’s more than enough!”

In the first place, for ordinary people, when it comes to clothes, they are either ready-made or handmade.

Even ready-made clothes are not something you just buy on a whim. Depending on the income, if there are minor frays, you mend them, and if the length doesn’t fit anymore, you adjust it or pass it on to siblings.

Having someone specially make clothes for you is something only a few wealthy people or nobles do. At least, I am too scared to wear such things.

If asked whether I can easily put on the things in that closet, I vigorously shake my head sideways.
