This month, we’re taking a break from the Q&A to hear the culinary opinions of the 3rd grade class from Gehman’s Mennonite School. I think you will be surprised by some of the foods these 8-9 year olds enjoy.
My favorite food is breaded shrimp. I like breaded shrimp because we don’t have it a lot and it is very delicious. - Samantha
My favorite food is pizza. You can get different kinds of it. I like pepperoni, cheese, mushroom, meat lover’s, or filled pizza. I like crazy crust because of its cheese. – Asia
I like steak because I like the flavor. – Carmen
I love snow crabs from a restaurant on the beach at Chincoteague. We dip the crab into butter and it’s just like a tasty taste. – Connor
My best food is soup. My mom bakes the soup. I love mom’s soup. It tastes so good and it’s healthy to me. Well, it’s healthy to everybody, not only me! – Anita
My favorite food is macaroni. We don’t have it that often. It has cheese that makes it so good. – Josiah
My favorite food is pizza because it’s spiced and has lots of flavor. I like pepperoni, cheese, sausage, and supreme pizza. It’s good to have pizza. – Ethan
I like ice cream because it is smooth and delicious. Me and my dad made some ice cream. I ate mine too fast and got a brain freeze. It tastes so good because it has sugar in it. I like ice cream! – Uriah
My favorite food is fruit salad. I sometimes help make it. It is very fun. It was canned fruit, so my sister drains it then we put the liquid together and drink it. I like it because it’s juicy and fruity. – Lydia
I like wings. We only have them on special occasions. I like how you have to bite them off the bones. – Alex
I like hamburgers when my dad grills them. It is delicious when he puts wood in the grill. Then the burgers have that crisp smoky flavor. – Jerlyn
I enjoy eating shrimp. Everybody in my family likes it. I like shrimp because my mom puts some spices on it. – Michelle
My favorite food is tacos. I like them because they are spicy and I really like spicy. My family usually has it as a meal every now and then. And we also have it for birthdays. – Molly
I love ham and mash potatoes because they have a really good taste! I could eat them every day. Do you like them? – Lewis
I like pizza. I like it because some kinds have pepperoni. When I reach my goal for Book-It I get a personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut. Pizza is my favorite food. – Katie
I like mashed potatoes. It goes good with everything. – Ricky
My favorite food is shrimp. We have it only on birthdays. It is very good and you should try it. I like the Old Bay season that is in it. I love it!!! – Carson
Your Recipes:
Chicken Egg Drop Soup

I enjoyed reading the article about chicken soup, and thought you might like this recipe. I made it for lunch with crackers. My mother made a similar recipe when I was growing up.
14 oz can Fat Free Chicken Broth

Salt and Pepper to taste
Directions: In a small bowl combine the egg and grated cheese. Mix thoroughly. Set aside. In a saucepan bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the egg and cheese mixture to the boiling broth. Continue to cook until the broth comes to a second boil. (Egg should appear scrambled.) Add salt and pepper to taste. Makes one serving. Enjoy!
