The Perfect Meal

Talking about food in class is making me hungry! What about you?

My perfect meal would be pastel de carne (a bottom layer of ground beef with tomato sauce, pimenton, eggs, onions, and a layer of mashed potatoes on top). My father would make the meal because he makes the best pastel de carne! I would need lots of bread so I can soak up all the delicious juices. I would drink a large glass of water. For dessert, I would have a large bowl of fresh fruit like in the picture you see above.

What is your perfect meal? Be very descriptive and use adjectives! I want to be able to taste your perfect meal!

Thanksgiving is on Thursday. This is a very important holiday for Americans. It is a day to gather with family and friends to give thanks and enjoy a very large meal. Some of the popular foods are turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.

Do you celebrate this holiday? Why or why not? What do you do on Thanksgiving? Where do you go? Who do you see? What do you eat?

Is there a holiday like Thanksgiving in your native country?

What are they doing?

Tell me as much as you can about this picture. Where are these people? What are they doing? Use adjectives to describe each person.

Today in class we started talking about employment and I would like to hear your opinions about work. Pick two to write about:

1) Do you think it is difficult to find a job in Chicago? Why or why not?

2) If you are married, do you think your husband has a good job or is he
looking for a better job?

3) Do you enjoy learning about employment in class? Why or why not?
