Student’s favorite meals

Food. It may be essential, but there’s no doubt it’s delicious! To show this, I have collected a few of your peer’s favorite foods!

First up is junior Alexis Snarr! Their favorite dish is baked spaghetti(seen right). It’s spaghetti, marinara sauce, and cheese in a baking dish, along with any toppings you want. Not going to lie, this sounds and looks really good! I’m going to have to convince my mom to make this soon!

After them is freshman Destiny Williams! Destiny’s favorite food is orange chicken(seen left). They said “it’s just something about having the chicken on a cold rainy day that just makes everything ten times better.” I’d have to agree. Orange chicken is one of my favorites as well, the tangy orange sauce and just a bit of spice on top of fried chicken breast is just magical.

Next up is freshman Trisharose Woodward. Her favorite meal is adobo(seen right). Adobo is marinated pork or chicken served over rice. Trish went into a lot of detail in her submission, so here’s an excerpt about adobo.

“usually Adobo chicken or Adobo Pork. Adobo is prepared using pantry basics, like white vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, peppercorns, and bay leaves, to create marinade. The meat is marinated in this mixture overnight, then simmered in the same marinade on the stove top until the meat is cooked through. A signature of the cooking method is that after the chicken or pork is simmered to perfection in the sauce, it’s usually browned in oil before serving. The adobo cooking technique is thought to have originated during pre-refrigeration times, in an attempt to preserve meat by cooking it in vinegar and salt.”

This is my favorite submission of the three, solely because of the amount of detail Trish went into. You can tell that she really loves this dish. I really want to make this dish now, as it sounds delicious.

Finally, we have my favorite dish! My favorite meal is garlic and herb salmon with a lemon hollandaise sauce(seen left). I prefer my salmon roasted or blackened than grilled, but it works anyway you want to cook it. The lemon hollandaise provides a perfect contrast to the garlic herb rub, it’s just so delicious!



Thank you for joining me on this fantastic food-filled journey! I hope you try one of these dishes, or go home and make your favorite meal!
