Food For Thought. . .Or Your Thoughts on Food

Hi there! How’s your winter been
going? We’ve had four snow days in the past month, so mine’s been great! Don’t
you love when you turn on the computer and see the word CLOSED next to your
school’s name? I think that may just be the best feeling in the world.

But actually, I’m hoping we have
school next Friday, because that’s the day of our sixth grade banquet. It’s
this tradition we have at Joyce Kilmer Middle School where every sixth grader
in the school brings in a dish, and then we sell the food in the school
cafeteria. The money all goes to charity. This year we’re giving the money to
help out all those people who were left homeless in Haiti after the earthquake.

I want to cook something really special, partly
because I’m the class president, and it’s important that I bring something a
lot of people will buy so we can earn a huge amount for charity. The other
reason I want to make something spectacular so that Addie and Dana can’t make
fun of my cooking. I know that sounds ridiculous, but you guys know that the
Pops can make fun of anything. And they usually do. I don’t really want to
spend the whole banquet hearing what a dork I am for making something Dana
thinks smells like the girls bathroom. You guys know what I mean, right?

I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions about what I
could make for the banquet. Do you have a favorite dish?

Thanks (again!) for the help. I’m
so glad I have friends like you.
