Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My grandma once said that she would make dumplings and give it to me, so I could eat it. Dumplings are a big part of our culture because a lot of people like it and buys it so they could eat it. I feel happy when I eat them. But my grandma says, “Never eat outside a stranger’s restaurant,” because “they produce food that could kill you.” My grandma says I’m the best because one time I said that “when I grow up my first dollar I would give it to my grandma.” One day in school, the teacher told the class to catch five tadpoles so I went where you could get tadpoles but what I got was water. When I went home I was disappointed that I only got water but no tadpoles but my grandma surprised me with her handmade dumplings. Three seconds later I was eating her handmade dumplings: it was so good that I knew what it was made of. It was made out of meat of course, scion, and vegetables. It taste so good with soy sauce. It was important to me because I only eat it once a month. Now in 2017 I eat it for one time in a week and in America we don’t have fake food! You guys should try dumplings to I bet you guys and girls would like it.
