Yummy, Yummy Food!

Hello, children of Thailand! We are middle school kids--ages 10-13--in a small school in Virginia, in the United States. We are very close to the Appalachian Mountains. There is lots of farmland here and a few small cities around us.

At our school we are offered many different classes. A few of our favorites are computer, family and consumer science, and PE--physical education. We play many different sports like softball, fottball, basketball, and soccer. Our main classes are Science, Math, Social Studies (learning about the world and government), and Language Arts (reading, writing, grammar, and spelling).

We saw your foods online and we also eat many of the same things as you (except for the water buffalo!). We eat three meals a day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes we eat dessert after dinner, usually something sweet. On special occasions we eat really neat food!

In the morning we like to hear hot grease crackling as our parents fry up some crispy bacon. We love to eat bacon with scrambled eggs and toast. Sometimes we eat pancakes or waffles with maple syrup on top. Usually we'll drink orange or apple juice, or milk, for breakfast. This is how our morning starts before we head off to school. Cereal, biscuits and gravy, breakfast pizza, and fruit are some other choices for breakfast.

Around 12:15 we go to our cafeteria where we eat lunch. The lunch ladies fix our lunch and we have a few different lines we can go through. We have a wide variety of salads with toppings like tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and salad dressing.

We also can choose from some sort of meat (chicken patties, chicken nuggets, hamburgers), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or pizza--usually pepperoni or cheese toppings only. Sometimes we get cookies or cake for dessert and we get milk with our lunch.

Some of us don't like school lunches, though, and our moms pack us food from home. Overall, school lunches are bland and boring and aren't very good.

Why do you cook your own lunch at school? What are the teachers doing? Do you have cafeteria workers who make your food some days?

There is a wide variety of dinner cuisine over here. Some favorites are:
  • Grilled chicken with barbeque sauce, creamy mashed potatoes smothered with gravy, and light, steamed mixed vegetables. Sweet tea goes great with this meal!
  • Steak or seafood such as shrimp or salmon, with rice or curry, green beans and tator tots, which are like french fries but in little circles.
  • One dessert favorite is chocolate upside-down lava cake which is a luscious chocolate fudge inside a chocolate cake.

Special Occasions

Special occasions are always fun to go to because of the food. We go to Super Bowl parties to watch football, or to weddings, carnivals, holidays, and family reunions.

For some special occasions, we eat unhealthily! Chips, popcorn, pretzels and other crunchy things are munchies people eat on snow days (when we don't have school) and at parties. At parties people serve appetizers and finger foods. Sandwiches are cut up in bite-size pieces. We also have fruit cut up with dip.

At carnivals or fairs that happen in the summer, we usually have fried chicken, french fries, funnel cakes with powdered sugar, and cotton candy. Fair food is the best!

At Christmas we eat lasagna, macaroni and cheese, green beans, ham, and peanut butter pie.

For dessert at special occasions we sometimes have cake with icing and ice cream on the side!

What do you eat for your special occasions?

Our parents usually cook all of our meals or we go out to restaurants to eat.
