The entire household had a huge debate over food. Bernard and Demi, my roommate from Nigeria, said that American food had no color. They told us that our food taste like it was flavored with water. They ate stuff like pounded yam, which looks exactly like mash potatoes, and jollof rice. When ever Bernard would cook chicken he would use every seasoning in the cabante, and Demi couldn’t cook so he relied on ubereats heavily.
My dad put all of his cleaned chitterlings in a large pot, and put all of his seasoning in the pot and let it cook for three hours or until it becomes tender. As they cook, the smell is both sickening and overbearing and not pleasant. The scent travel throughout the house and just lingers, there’s no amount of air freshener’s that will make the scent go away.

Disgusting yet accurate details presented in The Jungle were the basis for the creation of laws to stop food production from becoming so unsanitary. The Jungle follows a young Lithuanian immigrant named Jurgis Rudkis and his teenage wife Ona.
]A pity that you have more looks than heart./ You’d grudge a pinch of salt from your own larder/ to your own handyman. You sit here, fat/ on others’ meat, and cannot bring yourself/ to rummage out a crust of bread for me!” (Homer 1215-1223). This is dramatic irony, because this man denied to give food to his supplier, Odysseus. These men do not show the hospitality to him or his family for years.

Now that The Berliners were isolated from the world, they couldn’t get any supplies and the sectors only had enough coal to last 45 days and food to last just 36 days. West Berlin relied entirely on their allies to transport supplies into the capital or city or something. The Western Powers generally transported supplies by ways of trucks and railway. Democracy was becoming too strong so the Soviet Union thought that they could drive the Western Powers out of West Berlin.

He told us “Disease and starvation is what most people die from.” He also told us that most people just slept and didn't get up to do anything but eat. So in conclusion this proves what life is like
When the dentist came to take his gold crown, he tells him that he is not feeling well and that he has a fever. Wiesel states, “I had saved my gold crown.

In the beginning of the story, the author said: “Some of the caddies were poor as sin and lived in one-room houses with a neurasthenic cow in the front yard, but Dexter Green 's father owned the second-best grocery store in Black Bear” (Holt 858). The simile “poor as sin” displayed how much he disliked the lower class. And his father has owned the second-best grocery store showed he was from the middle-class and has a big ambition for being successful and rich. Another example of simile, Judy was dating another man until one day he told Judy that he was as poor as a church mouse (Holt 865). Judy was really upset that the man she cared was not wealthy.
