Favorite Tastes of Thanksgiving

   Autumn Vosough (9)- “My favorite thanksgiving food is mashed potatoes. I like them because it’s just gold when you eat them, it melts in your mouth, and you just can’t stop the flavor.” Vosough had a specifically vivid passion for mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes come in many different textures, seasoning and all, but that had never bothered her. As long as the potatoes are mashed, and she can spend thanksgiving with loved ones, she will  be just fine. 

   Daniel Barrigan (10)- “I love mashed potatoes with gravy because my aunt makes the best gravy.” Barrigan’s statement may have been simple, but it was also sentimental. He  waits all year just to take the first bite of mashed potatoes with the mouthwatering gravy. Thanksgiving day may be chilly, but the soft taste of mashed potatoes could warm his heart. Barrigan knew what he could be thankful for this season, and that was mashed potatoes and gravy.

   Jhanine Brown (11)- “I love baked macaroni and cheese and HAM from honey baked. I love it because it’s just so good to me for no reason, and I wait all year for it.” Brown  has a wide  spectrum of favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Thanksgiving for Americans consists of football, family, and seeing relatives no one remembers;  but the most memorable part of Thanksgiving would be the sight of golden eyes as soon as the food is served There is no true reason why this happens. Food always  brings families together. 

   Maxwell Bui (12)- “My favorite thanksgiving food is ham with pineapple seasoning because I have a more carnivorous taste, and it has a sweet flavor.” Bui had no hesitation in stating his favorite dish because he had an immediate reaction to the thought of a sweet roasted, crisp slice of ham. Mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and pineapple glazed ham all have an emotional connection to these students. With friends, comes family and with meals, come memories.
