“Okay!” I yelled back, and then my mother and father sat down last. As soon as everyone was sitting down peacefully, I started heaping food onto my plate. Dinner, I could tell, was going to be outstandingly brilliant, even before I started piling an extreme amount of food onto my plate. Dinner was magnificently delicious. The turkey, cooked perfectly, had a smooth texture, with juices packed with flavor running down my mouth onto my plate.
Every year on March 17, my mom works from home so a combination of corned beef, cabbage, carrots, onions, and broth can slowly cook in a crock pot all day, the smells fusing into the walls. Later on she makes mashed potatoes and toasts one or two loaves of Irish soda bread. When St. Patrick 's Day is on a school day, I come home, stand in the middle of our living room, and inhale the aromas, letting them fill my heart with comfort. When it is time to eat, my sister and I build sandwiches, stacking nearly everything in between two pieces of soda bread. The sandwiches are so huge that we make a game of seeing who can eat without it collapsing.
I, Zachary Higa, live in a world that contains a rich culture that spans to a variety of unique traditions. Although I would be categorized in the Asian ethnic group, my culture does not exactly align with that of this particular group. One specific example that conveys my particular lifestyle is my family’s New Year’s celebration. To begin our spectacular New Year’s celebration, I will start with the food, a mandatory necessity on our checklist. The food is always one of my favorite parts on New Year 's because I love to eat, and each course on the New Year’s menu has a story behind it.
Family is very important to my mom and I. I have an older brother who can get on my last nerve sometimes, but thankfully my mom is always there to make us best friends again. My mom provides peace when it comes to our family. She keeps our family grounded. If someone doesn’t like the food they order, she will switch with them. When my brother comes home from college she makes us extra food so we don’t argue about who gets the last spoonful, and on our birthdays she makes sure we get our favorite meal.
There is no other family like my family. that is why Thanksgiving is the most sacred family tradition in my family. It is filled with fun, laughter, and plenty of scrumptious food. Thanksgiving for my family, is an all day event, and can get hectic at times. I day starts off with an early morning breakfast cooked by my father.
My Family Thanksgiving Imagine you and your family all having a good time, enjoying yourself, and watching T.V. And that’s some of what I did at Thanksgiving. My family are very important to me because, they make other people laugh and do nice things. My Aunt Joann likes to make jokes, makes people laugh a lot, and makes great sweet potato pie. My Mom is the one who usually cooks for the holidays, this year my cousin Alyssa cooked.
For the fourth section of my portfolio, I decided to observe a family holiday dinner. The dinner that I chose to observe was my family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving is a major holiday in my family because, it is one of the only times that my family is able to all be together. However, this Thanksgiving was different than any other, due to the passing of my Pop-Pop. Thanksgiving was one of his favorite holidays, and it was hard for everyone to enjoy the meal as much as we normally would have.
My finger snapped against the black mouse as it made small ‘click’ noise. I scrolled down and found another thrilling recipe of super moist banana bread. I had always enjoyed browsing the Internet ever since I was young, but somehow browsing recipes were my favorite. My fingers tap danced across the keyboard as I wrote “Macaroni and cheese recipe” in the search bar. I clicked the first link that appeared on the screen.
Then we will organize the house and-and make sure all is put away. Later on, we will eat an enormous dinner. The next day is our last day of break, and my mother reminds us to have all of our items for school the next morning. I could honestly say our break was outstanding. The break did not seem to last super long, but we still had tons of thrilling activities to do.
As we were getting the table ready my aunt helped with the food,when we were done everyone came to eat. We talked about our days,and how we 're doing. After dinner we had apple pie that my aunt made for dessert, and it was delish. After dessert we went to the living room and watched the parade for a few hours. After the parade we started to get ready to go home,we told everyone goodbye then we got in the car and went home.
