Each month, the Severna Park Voice poses a question to a local fifth-grade class. This month, students from Ms. Spearman’s class at St. Martin’s-in-the-Field Episcopal School answered the question:
“If you could bring one modern food item back to the first Thanksgiving, what would you bring?”
If I could go back to the first Thanksgiving and bring one food, I would bring my mom’s dumplings. She cuts them in half and you can see little bits of tomatoes, rice and celery. They taste so good!
I would bring pecan pie. This wonderfully rich southern pie is one of the best. It is a perfect mix of nutty crunch and sticky sweetness.
I would bring green beans because they are juicy, salty, green, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness.
I would bring watermelon because it is healthy, delicious, juicy and extraordinary!
I would bring my grandmother’s cranberry fluff. It’s a great treat for Thanksgiving!
I would bring scones to the first Thanksgiving because you can make them in a variety of flavors.
If I could, I would bring mashed potatoes to the first Thanksgiving because they just taste so good. They are buttery, silky and delightful.
If I could bring one item to the first Thanksgiving, it would be sushi because it tastes delightful.
I would bring mashed potatoes to the first Thanksgiving because they are salty, soft and buttery.
