Food At The Prom Essay

766 words - 3 pages

I have a lot of good memories of my senior prom. The Hilton's California ballroom, the dancing, and socializing with friends were some of the memories. But most of all, the food was the best memory of all. The food served at Castlemont High's senior prom was colorful and delicious. One could not help but to see, smell, and eventually consume the food. The meal consisted of hors d'oeurves, the main course, beverages, and dessert. All of these delicacies combined made the prom a satisfying experience.I remember vividly the set of hors d'oeurves. The hors d'oeurves were arranged in a big heart to set the mood of mystery and romance. The bright crimson bell pepper stood mighty in the face of its relative, the humble, dull, green pepper.

My taste buds watered, but nothing could compare to the next course I was about to see.After devouring the hors d'oeurves, the main course was set before us. The arrangements of Chinese styled meats, rice, and vegetables were scrumptious. The roasted chicken with its dry skin was covered by an orange sauce with green onions glued to the surface of the sauce. The rice, darkened to the color of light brown, housed the pieces of yellow and white scrambled egg, the cubed pieces of salted, cured ham, and shreds of imitation shrimp meat. The stir fried vegetables were made up of carrots, long two inch green string beans, and the head and partial stems of broccoli. The shreds of carrot were intermingled between the broccoli and the string beans.Not only did the main course look good, it tasted excellent. The roasted orange glazed chicken was sweet and spicy, spicy enough so that with every few...
