In English class, we are currently reading A Tale of Two Cities. After reading the first chapter, my class had a detailed discussion about what the chapter title (“The Period”) emphasized. We were basically picking the whole thing apart. One suggestion came up, and it was that the title talked about a time of change. Life is always changing, either for “the best of times” or “the worst of times.” During the Age of Discovery, the world was progressing to make a change. This leads to how new desserts are constantly being created and reinvented even if they become the best ones or the worst. The process won’t stop, and the recipes it leaves behind will be kept and improved on for ages.
Have you ever thought what it might be like if the world began to rain food like in the movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”? The movie focuses on how the main character, Flint Lockwood, always wanted to make a difference and create something new despite of being discouraged by the people around him. His enthusiasm for inventing is what keeps him motivated to continue. Although many of his creative inventions usually end up in failure, Flint doesn’t give up. When the only source of revenue for the town is gone, Flint takes it as his opportunity to build a machine that would change water into food. However, things turned out differently than what Flint expected. He ended up changing the weather and making it rain food in the town of Swallow Falls!
