The Abandoned Saint Became the Snack Attendant for the Childish Demon King – Chapter 80

“Popcorn is delicious, but I also want to eat tomatoes.”

When I brought the popcorn for today’s snack, Demon King-sama brought up the topic. 

Perhaps he got tired of five consecutive days of popcorn. Or maybe he remembered because I had served boiled corn and chilled tomatoes nearby.

“Chilled tomatoes, right?”

“No, this time I want something different. Is there a snack that uses tomatoes like corn?”

It seems to be the former.

This is also delicious. He keeps saying he wants more as he munches on it.

But a tomato snack, huh? Nothing immediately comes to mind.

When it comes to tomatoes, the strong image is of meals and appetizers like pizza, minestrone, roasted tomatoes, and pickles.

The combination of grilled cheese and sliced tomatoes is crispy and delicious, but it still has a strong image of being an appetizer.

Tomato jelly, which is occasionally seen in the summer, could be included as a snack. 

However, it strongly reminds me of something that would be served as a fancy restaurant appetizer.

What if I make tomato jelly using that concept? But I have never made tomato jelly, let alone tomato juice.

Is it better to put the whole tomato in, or should I cut it and put it in? If I put it in a blender, I think I need to strain it.

But the tomato juice I made at home in the blender has a pleasant texture.

The smoothness of store-bought tomato juice is good, but the satisfaction of homemade ones is different. It was great to drink when I was a little hungry or in the morning when I wasn’t very hungry. 

“But tomato juice wouldn’t be a snack, right?”

I mutter under my breath.

Then Demon King-sama suddenly looks up. His mouth is filled with popcorn. In order to swallow it, he quickly moves his mouth up and down.

“It’s okay to take it slow.”

“Mm!”

And after swallowing the tea, he takes a deep breath.

“Is there also juice made from tomatoes? Is it delicious?”

“Yes, it’s delicious. It’s quite filling, but I occasionally feel like drinking it.”

“I want to drink it! I want you to make it tomorrow.”

“Well, but tomato juice is not really a snack…”

“But chilled tomatoes are a snack, right?”

Demon King-sama tilts his head in confusion. I did indeed convey that.

And in Demon King-sama’s mind, even hot sandwiches are considered snacks. So maybe tomato juice is not a big deal.

“Then I’ll bring it tomorrow.”

“Yes!”

What about Tyran-san?

It’s a bit too much to just have tomato juice…

I thought about making a separate one just for Tyran-san, but his reaction was unexpected.

“Tomorrow is tomato juice, huh? That’s nice. Make it a bit sweet for me.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yeah. I like tomatoes.”

Come to think of it, when I served chilled tomatoes, there were traces of tomatoes on his mouth as he came to complain.

“I want it in a large cup.”

He even made such a request. 

It’s fortunate that both Demon King-sama and Tyran-san have their favorite foods and no dislikes.

Not only for Tyran-san but also for Demon King-sama, I’ll put in extra sugar.

I return to the kitchen and discuss tomorrow’s snack with Migi-san and Hidari-san. Although it’s just cutting tomatoes and blending them with sugar.

“Tomato juice, is it?”

Both of them blinked in surprise. They probably didn’t expect juice to be served as a snack. And to say it’s juice, but it’s made from vegetables.

Until now, when it comes to juice for Demon King-sama, it has been orange juice. And even that is served only occasionally. So it was surprising that it was a request from Demon King-sama. But they accepted it immediately.

“We happen to be out of tomatoes, so we’ll go buy some.”

“I’ll pick out something that will satisfy Demon King-sama.”

As soon as they said that, they prepared for shopping and headed to the human realm.

The next day. 

The tomato juice made with the tomatoes they bought was highly praised by Demon King-sama and Tyran-san.

They each drank two cups in large sizes, and even then, they wanted more, but I stopped them.

Demon King-sama pouted his cheeks. But I understand that feeling well.

I also drank it in the kitchen with Migi-san and Hidari-san, and it was more delicious than what I had in my previous life.

“Where did you go to buy such delicious tomatoes?”

“When I went on a procurement trip before, I heard about a place famous for tomatoes, so I went to that farm.”

“Because we want to drink delicious things.”

Both of them drank the second cup and seemed very satisfied.

In unison, they declared, “We will buy it again.”
