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.
Despite their differences in these holidays, they are also similar in various ways. For example, during both these holidays we are set off from work and school to relax, which is the Thanksgiving break, and the winter break. My family all unite at my grandmother 's house, each bringing a dish to share. For example, in Thanksgiving, my mom sometimes makes the ham, my aunt brings the turkey while others bring mashed potatoes and corn. As for Christmas a feast is also being made as we all gather around bringing different varieties of dishes such as tamales, and posole.
Chivalry is doing the right thing for the right reason at the right time. My mom never fails to show me the power of chivalry. Although there are many virtues my mother displays, faith, generosity, and courage are three that I notice the most. From little things like making me breakfast before school to taking me on shopping trips, my mom shows me how much she cares. 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.
Mary Grcich says “The restaurant has been going on for 16 years.”(Valadez, 2). Mary had a passion for Old Styles history and traditions. She loved cooking the old style foods that they served at the Old Style Inn. During one of Mary’s recent visits she realizes “The eatery menus or dishes that aren’t too common on restaurant menus now days” (Valadez, 2). There was big sellers during this time period which were: frog legs, roast duck, prime rib, perch, and shrimp deJonge.
Greetings everyone, I hope you all enjoying this fall weather and are excited that it is Spirit Week! On Friday 11/3/17 from 10:30-12:30 we will be having Chicken Waffle Grill on campus to raise money for the students. From the feedback that was provided I was able to make changes for the last event. I have attached a copy of the menu and their prices for you to share with your students. Rita was able to create some flyers that can be posted in your room about Chicken Waffle Grill.
The sandwiches are so huge that we make a game of seeing who can eat without it collapsing. (I usually win because she attempts to hold onto the sides causing the meat and potatoes to come squirting out the back.) Whether our group consists of just four or has twelve, the meal ceaselessly proves to be enjoyable. In my family, the menus for Christmas and Thanksgiving are never the same. However, St. Patrick 's Day is consistent.
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. I feel the importance of having every single ounce of food with meaning behind it, and this phenomenon has been ingrained into my own culture. In addition to the outstanding
My father laughed and insisted that we go to his favorite barbecue place. As soon as we arrived, my father was ready to order. He always eats the same meal of steak fries, ribs covered with a thick, sugary barbecue sauce, and a tub of cole slaw swimming in mayonnaise. Of course, flaky biscuits shiny with grease come with this meal. My father teased me when I choose to eat a few items from the salad bar.
I had never been in a stand before so you could imagine the excitement that was I was feeling. My uncle was near by and heard the shot and came over to help. I learned a lot that day about how to properly field dress, and process the deer. Once we go the deer home, we made homemade sausages, steaks, burger, and jerky. My personal favorite is the burger.
However, it is quite easy to come across a family who have different values. Participating in this experience allows me to be able to see how important certain aspects of the holidays are to everyone. When working with clients, they may be fortunate to have all of their loved one’s with them, and their most important part of Thanksgiving is making sure that the turkey is cooked perfectly. For a client with a disability, it can be hard to make a holiday meal perfect, because they often feel held back my their disability. Experiencing this Thanksgiving meal with my family showed that while something may be effecting the day, a holiday can be as perfect as it can be, with the love and support of others.
Its just one of my goals to give back to them especially my mom because of all the things she went through and wants me to be a better man when I’m older. Overall I praise my mom because she has to put up with me even though we have some bad agreements at times but at the end of the day I love her no matter what because she is doing all this for my sister and I. She is an amazing woman and I am thankful to have her as a mom because of all the things she has done for me and I hope later on when I get my degree I would make her proud. I also praise her for all the things she has overcome like the war that went on in here country, making it to the US so we could have a better life, and for being an amazing mother that I love no matter
