Parents laughed and kids played. Reading the story made me smile. It just seemed lik a happy great time for everyone, Never wanting the fun to end. And the unbreakable bond between all of them showed this theme greatly. "A child—could wake up one day and call for “Block Party Day.” And we’d share ribs, corn, chicken, tater pie, and collard greens, and Miss Sarah who never married always made punch with vanilla ice cream and it would melt into a swishy mess."
Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
Donuts Don’t Lie by: Angela Wilkinson Mom was in the kitchen making a grocery list while Dad and Tay-Tay were in the family room. Dad was watching sports on T.V. and Tay-Tay was playing with his toys, secretly daydreaming of powdered donuts. He tasted them for the first time at his daycare yesterday afternoon. He just can’t stop thinking about those powdered donuts that melt in your mouth.
Not only did she get first, but she also got second in show, coming in close to a plate of sugar cookies. Thinking back on it now, I laugh a little every time because Bailey had never really liked sugar cookies. And whenever there is the mention of sugar cookies I know that she is thinking about how she should have won that too. As we are sitting in her basement eating cookies and watching the Harry Potter series, I’m glad that we had gone through the ups and downs that we had. I know that if we hadn’t, Bailey and I wouldn’t be the best of friends as we are
Everyone would gather around, eat lots of food with family and friends, decorating Christmas trees, and exchanging gifts. It used to about rejoicing the upcoming year, eating fresh meat, and drinking the finally ready-made wine and beer that was fermenting during the year. This was the one day of the year in which parents could spoil their kids, without “actually spoiling” them. Christmas has been celebrated to this day in every part of the world. In the US, we decorate trees, put up christmas lights in and outside our homes, gather together as a family, and possibly set our cookies and milk for Santa.
Girl Scout Cookies For nearly a hundred years, girl scouts have been selling cookies as a way to fund their projects and ventures. This all started in 1917 when the Mistletoe Troop baked cookies and sold them in their school cafeteria as a service project (girlscouts.org). Since then, the tradition of selling these delicious cookies has continued as well as the addition of several other flavors. My all time favorite girl scout cookie is the Samoa, also known as Carmel deLites. These angels come in a bright purple box containing fifteen cookies evenly spread out between three rows.
Furthermore, my mom continued that tradition with her children and now that I am older leaving on my own I do it myself for the cold weather. My mom usually makes the meal on Saturday morning when everybody is home and wakes up late then ready to eat some warm Arroz con Leche with some bread on the side. This is my favorite meal now that I cannot get enough of this meal because it’s delicious with all the ingredients it has which is not many but makes it good. The ingredient rice from Arroz con Leche origin story is that it was passed on to India but then passed on to Greece and Mediterranean areas. In addition, going to those areas it spread to Southern Europe and North Africa then brought to South America.
He grabs his fork and dives into the stack of hot cakes his mother has prepared. Mikes’ mother smiles, “Someone has a birthday today?” she teased. Mikes’ laughter rings out gleefully, “Yes, I am five years old today and Baby CoCo is five months old today. Today we are the same number. I will put Baby CoCo in my red wagon so he can meet all my friends on the farm.” “Mikie, you have planned a very exciting adventure,” his mother cheerfully replied.
To every family member, family is always first. Every Christmas Eve my family reunites with a platter of food, all the children wear the pajamas and we all bake Christmas cookies and watch a Christmas, usually animated since the toddlers are watching. An hour before midnight, we organize the journey that Maria and Jose experienced
I admired Mrs. Johnson, Cindy’s mom. When I would visit Cindy, She would politely say, “Chelsea,” relaxes, you are at home. Mrs. Johnson invited me over to dinner all the time during the holiday season. She cooked some of the best corn bread I ever tasted. The parade
Cooking and decorating soothes the soul. For over 50 years Mary Jackson has been warming hearts with her mouthwatering cooking by turning ordinary foods into extraordinary dishes. Mary graduated from James Madison High School and was nominated for Most Beautiful Girl and served on the Journalism Club, English Club, Drama Club, Rifle Team, ROTC and studied Medical Technology at Texas Southern University. Mary’s culinary passion began by baking cookies with her Mother. That passion for cooking was further developed at Dallas Independent School District; where she served 29 years as a culinary supervisor.
Some hobbies I have taken up recently are baking and crocheting. Much of my family loves to bake so baking comes naturally to me; although crocheting, on the other hand, I have been working to learn and become good at this new hobby. Dancing has also been a big part of my life. I danced for nine total years before deciding to quit this year so I can make room for
Since joining the NHS I have developed a great appreciation for everything going on around me. From holding the door for someone or simply greeting other in the hallways, I believe that the NHS has helped me develop a open and giving personality that has a positive impact on everyone I come into contact with. There are many things that come to mind when I think of how my character has changed, but there is a certain one that really sticks out. That example is this year when the NHS was serving cookies for Valentine’s Day and we had a bunch of leftover cookies. I asked Mr. Spears what we were going to do with the leftover cookies and he thought we could just hand them out during lunch.

There was a need to have a more portable yet sustainable food and the tamales could be made ahead of time, packed and warmed as needed. Now we cook tamales more for holidays and in the fall time.
