Memories - Lasagna and its Memories & Emotions That Go With It

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Chardai Francis Mrs. Sutton English II Honors, Period 3 September 8, 2009 Lasagna and its Memories & Emotions That Go With It "I'll tell you what we don't eat on the Fourth of July. French toast, Asian food, Lasagna. Are you spotting a pattern here?" This is a known quote by Harry Blazer, one that I dislike. I believe Lasagna should be eaten every holiday. It is my favorite dish because I love the memories it brings to my mind anytime I smell the Italian seasoned dish. I just get overwhelmed with emotions that go hand-in-hand with the memories. I have two most memorable memories. The first memory took place just this summer. Oh my, my dad forced my older sister, Raakesha, and I to make dinner since my mother was going to be working late that evening. I moaned, complained, and tried to sneak out not knowing that this event would be one of my most memorable. As I hung up my cell phone walked in the kitchen my whole family yelling and causing chaos as usual. ...read more.

Middle

Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in 9- x 13-inch baking dish. Layer half each of noodles, cottage cheese mixture, meat mixture and mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers." After my sister and I read this we both looked at each other with confused faces. We must have read it four to five more times, still a little confused we just guessed what we thought it meant. As we did the layers we put too much of the meat mixture in the first layers, so when we were doing the last layer there was hardly any of it left so we just kind of packed it with cheese, then the middle aged lady in our imaginary audience yelled out "oh yes, cheeeese!" But we had to get her removed from the studio as she tried to steal the cheese. She clearly had a thing for cheese, her and the lady in the loud green. We thought the meal was going to be awful as we laughed when we were placing it in the oven. ...read more.

Conclusion

But once the lasagna was served we both didn't waste any time waiting for it to cool we dug in and almost burned all the taste buds off of our tongues, we didn't care we continued, finished, and wanted seconds but didn't want to look greedy in front of each other. We talked about how many different places we've eaten Lasagna at and eventually found out it was both of our favorite dishes. We played videos games, exchanged numbers, and my brothers, my cousin, and I walked him home. We embraced on the corner and I walked back to my cousin's house skipping and blushing. Then I finally got my second piece of Lasagna happily replaying that evening's events. And that night I went to sleep with a big smile on my face! "The trouble with eating Italian food is that 5 or 6 days later you're hungry again" this is a quote by George Miller that I do agree with. Lasagna is my favorite food because it brings many memories and emotions to my mind when I think about, eat, or smell its mouth watering aroma. ?? ?? ?? ?? Lasagna & Its Memories 1 ...read more.
