"It's easy, it's filling, and it's convenient and inexpensive. Compared to other foods it's something that working people and ordinary people can go out and enjoy. "
"Fast food chains spend a large amount of marketing to get the attention of children."
"Today a typical fast food hamburger has dozens or hundreds of strips of beef from different cattle, in different regions blended together. So, if you have one sick cow in the batch, then the risk of getting sick is greater. "
The production of fast food has affected out country in several ways as the book displays. It highers obesity, ruins our landscape, and deepen the separation between rich and poor. There is a big affect on fast foods on the U.S, mostly negatively. It makes consumers gain weight and get addicted to the health-risking food. It poses big possibilities in diseases in where their products are made from as well. The high demand for the fast food causes the producers to take over more and more of fresh and beautiful land in the U.S.

For my Advisory Project, I made chicken biriyani. This is a traditional dish made in Bangladesh and neighboring countries, usually made in celebrations or parties. It's chicken and rice with a special mixture of spices called masala.

For my cultural food project I decided on making a Mexican desert called Ante de Almendra, I chose this plate because it is from Oaxaca, a place where I have some family members and I have never made it before so it would be a new experience. At first I thought it would be a bit difficult because I had never actually made a desert just food but it took less time than I thought it would and although it didn't result the way it was suppose to I wouldn't mark it as a complete failure.
The dish that i made for the international food sale for our advisory was fried rice. It was fairly simple but time consuming. I started cooking at 8:00 and ended at 9:30. Here is the process that i created this.
For my Holiday Food Project I decided to make lasagna. I know it really isn't a traditional dish from my country, which is Mexico. But that's not the focus of this. Around Christmas time and a really special occasion, my family and I make a few dishes to bring over to someone else's house so that we can all enjoy. I think we started making lasagna after i had once tried it at someone else's house and I really liked it and when my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas I said lasagna.
My advisory has created a bake sale to raise money for some unknown charity. This bake sale has been different from all the others I had participated in. It required that everyone make food (no people to get the cheap plates and forks while all the others cook) from scratch (no purchasing donuts from the store near school last minute) from your culture ( rules out the traditional cupcake, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies).
For the Cultural Bake Sale project, I chose to make Dumplings. Dumplings are a common food in Chinese culture. They are similar to Ravioli from Italy, since both have an outer skin made out of dough and are filled on the inside with various savory foods.
To make dumplings, you need: Dumpling skins, minced meat (I used pork for this project), vegetables (I used scallions and cabbage), salt, and anything else that you would like to put inside the dumplings (I put in sesame oil.)
For my holiday food project, I've chosen to cook my favorite Bengali dish, tuna bora. However, it must be acknowledged that the "real" Bengali dish is actually "dal bora," where dal is used instead of tuna. This variation originates from my paternal grandmother. She arrived to New York, from Bangladesh,when I was born. She spent most of her life in Bangladesh, and, considering the traditional role of women in the country, she has a great amount of experience with cooking. One day, her creative mind told her that she could substitute dal with tuna to make "tuna bora."

So, I readed an article about the typhoon in Philippines, and it makes me very sad because there are thousands and thousands of people dieing. They need our help! I think maybe if we could help in some way, it would be really nice from us, Americans. It really surprised me when i read this quote from the article called "philippines Typhoon Survivors Desperate For Clean Water" that says, "Not only do survivors need to stay hydrated, they also need to be protected from waterborne diseases such as cholera and typhold." Just because of this natural disaster people are getting sick & dieing.
Do you like summer? I know I do. It's great! No more mornings where you have to wake up really early. No more mornings where you regret not getting any sleep. No more studying. Gosh, that's a pain, right? Summer is the time where you can wake up at 3 in the afternoon and sleep at 5 in the morning without worrying about anything. Summer is the time where you can go outside and go swimming with your friends. Summer is for ice cream and beach balls. Well, actually, that's what everyone wants to do in the summer. I don't really have the time and energy to do that.
This is the moment you have been waiting for; the seconds before school is over for the year and the long awaiting summer vacation will finally start. The bell rings and everyone runs out the door and cheers, excited to rest and never come back to school (until September that is). You say bye to your friends, who will be spending their summer overseas and your teachers, who you hope to never see again. You get home, sleep, go online, and be the laziest person ever!
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been food photography. I never heard someone speak about it before. I just began thinking about it this year, while trying to figure out my profession. Lately, the issue has made me think about what it really is. I know that some people think it is not a good idea to got to school ONLY for that. Many people have told me have a good backup plan because it is not a reliable income source. From what I have heard it looks like an easy job, but its quite challenging like any other job.
