Week 7: Nature

leaves

For week 7 I decided to write about fall and how in the fall the leaves change colors. Fall is my favorite season. Not only is the different colors of leaves but its fun to see all the different colors before winter comes and all you see is white stuff. The thing that sucks about fall is that there is a lot of leaves on the ground that have to be picked up before winter comes. Its always fun to jump in the leave piles while your parents continue to rake the leaves. If I had to pick a season that is my favorite it would be fall. Fall is the season I was born in. Babies born in October through November are most likely to live in their 100’s.  Fall is also when Thanksgiving is. I love Thanksgiving time because you get to eat a lot of yummy food like Pumpkin pie. (Pumpkin pie is my favorite thing to eat on Thanksgiving!) During Thanksgiving, my family eats a lot of food and we hang around each other and talk and catch up on whats been going on in our lives. We usually have both ham and turkey because our family is so big and we use it for leftovers. When we have leftovers, we use them when we have eggs or we will have ham and turkey sandwiches for lunch. We have two different Thanksgivings, we have one with my moms family and my dads family. When we have Thanksgiving with my dads family, My grandma makes my dad and I our own pumpkin pie. I love my Grandma’s pumpkin pie. She makes the best pies. I don’t know what I would do if she didn’t make them for me. I love fall because its my favorite season. I also like fall because I love Thanksgiving and spending time with my family.

Famous American Food

In America, one of our most popular foods is french fries.  You can get them at any fast food restaurant.  When you go to a restaurant an order french fries, a medium box of french fries contains 17 grams of fat.  A McDonald’s restaurant uses 7% of United States potatoes to make french fries. French fries were introduced to the United States when Thomas Jefferson was president in 1801. Each year people eat around 16 pounds of french fries. That is a lot of french fries if you ask me. In 2007, 320 million tons of potatoes were produced. 2/3 of these potatoes were consumed of food. When eating french fries, your blood pressure can be lowered because of a chemical, kukoamines, in the potato. There’s different types of fries. There is curly, regular, stake, sweet potato, and waffle fries. You cook fries by deep frying them. They are most now for the “BFF” to ketchup.
