From Lindsey, LaCenter, KY:
My favorite meal is the breakfast we have on Christmas morning. My dad, brother, and I all gather around our festive kitchen table as my mother prepares the delicious food we're about to indulge in. The smell of bacon sizzling on the stove floats through the air, and the sight of fluffy pancakes piled high on top of each other makes my mouth water. When the food is finally ready to eat, we all stuff ourselves with pancakes, eggs, sausage, and bacon, and wash it down with a large glass of orange juice. The food is so delicious, I think I could eat it every day and never get tired.
From Billy, LaCenter, KY:
My favorite meal would have to be some breakfast! I would invite my brothers and we would make pancakes,bacon,eggs,and sausage. I can already taste the crispy taste of the bacon dipped in sunny-side up egg yolk. Pancakes slathered in butter and syrup.
From Maria, Miami, Florida:
I love it at my house when it's Christmas! My sweet,little mami Maria who i dearly love, makes all these types of great, wonderful, finger-licking god food at my house. She makes aro con leche (rickemilk) yellow rice mixed with small pieces of chicken, mashed patatoes, and my favorite the vanilla cake with raisens, little bit of chocolate,and a bit of cinimon. That tastes so goood, it'll make my tastebuds dance to Vincenti! Mami Maria invites the whole family that lives in Miami, FL to eat with us, and they bring thier own food too. My god parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, great aunt Zoila and my favorite cousin,Suasana. My tia Raquel brings some pasrels from nicaragua, which are to die for because it smells like you had just smelt angels, my tio Pepe brings tamales, my tia conny brings liquer, which my mom and grandpa goes crazy over, and apple cider. The house is lovely when it's Christmas. We have the baby Jesus on the bottom of the tree with Mary, Joseph and the three kings in the little barn where Mary gave birth to Jesus. There are mules,cows, calves,sheep, baby sheep and the donkey they rode on to get to the barn. There are presents that surround the tree because there are 7 people living in my house,plus the one the my aunts and uncles bring to the house. We love christmas and on Christmas eve, we go to church at 7 o'clock, then we leave at 8 o'clock. You would love to come to my house for Christmas, like I would.

Chrismas day is the day I'm looking forward to. I'm excited for the smell of pies, cakes, turkey, and and greens. It all smells like heaven. I can see my mom, my dad, my brother, snd the rest of my family. But I realize I can't touch the food until my uncle who is always late gets here. So I call him and ask him where he is and have to wait 15 minutes before he gets here. Once he does I practically drag him out of his car and inside to the dinner table. I'm distracted by the food until I hear, "AMEN" and I leterally start stuffing my face full of it all at the same time.

From Sharmeequah, Bogalusa, LA:
The most ideal meal for me is Cajun Gumbo, dressing, chicken and dumplings, ham, and sweet potatoe pie. we have this every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Our environment during this occasion is quiet, loving, and funny. The people that are present during these events are: my mom, my brothers, my cousins, my aunts, my grandparents, and my family friends. Our sight is the kitchen or in the living room, sitting on the couch eating a hot, fresh, delicious plate of food. When we're eating this gumbo the only sound you hear is spoon hitting the bottom of the bowls, people in the kitchen talking and waiting to get some more, and people sleep on the couch from being so full. The smell of the house is a mixture of different holiday and cooking smells. You can smell the dressing in the oven, the honey smell from the ham, the chicken cooking for chicken and dumplings, the sweetness smell from the sweet potato pie, and the smell of delicious out of this world gumbo. The textures are sweet and spicy at the same time. This is my idea of a perfect meal.
