NaBloPoMo: Recipe Memoirs, Part 1

In the college English classes that I teach, near the end of the semester students write a recipe or food memoir and share their memoirs while bringing in samples of the food. There are three days' worth of presentations, and yesterday was the first day in which students brought in food. It was really nice to see what students brought in, and to have a chance to just relax as a collective group and eat together, even if it's not something we would have done otherwise.

From the first class, clockwise from
