Pairs Well With
It was two years ago at Christmas time. It was time for my uncles Christmas party. My cousin, aunts, uncles, and people who are just guests brought something for the dinner table. My mom brought her most exquisite, most fabulous green bean casserole. Since the green bean casserole was so good in the past years we knew it was going to be the best food of the night.
As we entered the house almost everyone was asking what smelled so scrumptious. I told them it was my mom’s casserole. “Wow,” said the crowd of hungry people. As I went to set down the flavorsome casserole, I saw all the other food. There was a lot, but I knew our heavenly goodness would be the top discussion after dinner. “Dinner,” said a hungry adult calling everyone to eat.
The first thing to plop on my plate was the green surprise. Then other tasty foods went on my plate. As I sat down, I could smell the salty french fried onions on top of the casserole. That made my mouth water even more than before. Now this smell made me starving. I took the biggest bite in the world from the casserole making sure I still had enough on my plate. Just this one bite made me craving for more, but I couldn't after eating the heavenly goodness twice. I was too full.
After everyone was done eating I went over to my mom. I asked her “How was it.” She knew what I was talking about because that was all I was talking about the whole night. She replied, “great.” I knew she would have said that. Everyone else heard our conversation and they also said, “Delicious.” I was so thrilled because I helped make it that year. After all the compliments, on the casserole I decided to make it the year after and the year after. Now nobody can get enough.
That night was the best! Everyone including me, went home with full stomachs. I will always remember how much fun it was to make the green bean casserole for the first time. Many people enjoyed the casserole that year especially my mom.
