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.
