Lily Wong, in her article about food, entitled “Eating the Hyphen,” states, “Perhaps this combination (ketchup and dumplings) has something to do with the fact that since both my parents grew up in the States, we’ve embraced many American traditions while abandoning or significantly modifying many Chinese ones” (95). Wong expresses how being a Chinese American has affected her life in a positive way. Wong eats some of her food Americanized, with ketchup, but also eats food that the majority of American’s would not touch (i.e. jellyfish and sea cucumber).

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. We have our Asian inspired dishes that are symbols of good luck, so even though I do not like to eat the daunting black beans, I brave through the bite in order to have a good year. Also, my grandmother would always make turkey because it reminds us of Thanksgiving, and it shows my grandmother’s way of thanking God for the amazing year that we had.
