Looking back, this occasion is engraved in my memory forever. It was something special in my life, one of my favorite moments. In the absence of his father, Conroy had many great times with his family. "Chili cheese dogs", brought back special memories for him. His favorite moment was each Sunday after church, when his mother used to take him to the “Varsity”, to eat “Chili Cheese dogs”.
This is a sandwich which has beef that is cooked with onions and covered in cheese. It was a really fun trip and I took lots of pictures while I was there. ------------------------------------------------- I didn’t travel much after that. I was able to spend time with my family hang out at home. I read consistently all summer.
Many people have vacations in this month, so many people can go. I can say that the most memorable event in my life was when I went to this camp for eight days in companion of my friends and God. There were many activities to do. The first activities that I am going to talk are about the sports. We can play basketball, water polo, soccer, volleyball, baseball, dodge ball and many other group games like Ping-Pong and table soccer.
Then we grab all the potatoes and rinse them off with cold running water. We cut each potato into dices and put all the potato dices into a pan to let them boil. While we cooked potatoes and a turkey, with my dads help, my brothers and I put a ham with pineapples on a grill. The smoke coming off the grill about an hour later really made me so hungry. Who likes pie on Thanksgiving?
Cuban arroz con pollo Like Jhumpa Lahiris story of her father famous rice, (pulao), my mother Vivian aka mom, prepared arroz con pollo with love and brings the family together every Sunday. My mother Vivian lovely prepares her arroz con pollo. Every Saturday she goes to the supermarket to pick the fresh ingredients for her arroz con pollo. Every Sunday, my sisters and I are at my mother’s house very early in the morning. My mother starts by telling her daughters what to do.
My job was going well for the first few weeks of training; I enjoyed being there and serving customers with a smile. We sold every type of chicken anyone could think of. We even had hot sauce like Popeye’s chicken. To say we had all the works was an understatement. Weeks passed, and it seemed like things were changing.
Sander’s was the oldest of three kids including a little sister who was three and a baby. Colonel Sanders was forced to watch his siblings, which included cooking for them. By the time he was 10 he was a great cook, trying new recipes of different spices etc. Colonel Sanders was no stranger to hard work at a very young age, from watching his siblings, to working on a farm full time at 15 for a mere $2 a month. By the time the Colonel was 60 he started feeding hungry travelers coming through his neighborhood, the rest is history.
I was born into this world July 7th, 1995, I didn’t get to choose the family I’d be put into, but I can now say I was put into the best possible family. My first memory of growing up was on a Sunday Afternoon, it happened to also have been my 4th birthday. If you’re Italian, you will definitely know what Sunday lunch is at Nonna’s house and if you’re Italian you know that birthdays are important. I guess this is why I remember this day quite well. Walking into Nonna’s house smelling homemade sugo(pasta sauce) being dumped onto the fresh pasta she had probably made that very day was the best!
My fondest memory from childhood is the food I ate when I visited my grand parents house in the city of Lucknow – the origin of ‘Awadhi’ cuisine in India, that being said, my fondest ‘food’ memory is definitely from then! It was the kebabs – that melt in the mouth with every bite, the ulte tawey ki roti (a well seasoned Indian bread made with flour, eggs and milk which has different textures) and the mangos at the end of it all. I’d spend my school summer break in Lucknow with my family and our favorite past time was to try different Awadhi dishes every opportunity we got. My favorite kebabs were the galouti kebabs from a place called ‘Tunday kebabs’. The story behind the invention of the dish and the roadside open air food joint (called a dhaba in India) is one to tell.
This year I had the privilege of being able to help host the International Food Festival. This has been a tradition in our school that I was happy to be involved with and was able to help make possible. When we first started working on the project I promptly signed up for the decorations committee and started making posters. I spent long and short periods making serpentines and other small decorations I even made two piñata molds so people could decorate them. Then I went to make bigger and very important decorations; the flags.
