Relationship: Im/migrant

By Nayeli

My object is Sancocho.  Sancocho is from the Dominican Republic. It is  used for special occasions. My family eats sancocho. It is made of rice, meat, avocado, platanos, yuca, corn and potatoes. It is special for me because it is a part of my culture and a tradition in my family. 
I chose this because there is a story behind it. When my grandma came to the US, she made this with my family. It’s a tradition my family keeps doing. It is important for my family and my culture because my grandma taught my mom how to make this and my mom will teach me. It teaches me about the food in the Dominican Republic.
I wonder why my family uses this dish for special occasions only . My feelings on my object are good because it reminds me of my grandma all the time. It is very good and special for my family.
