 For my object I chose Tostones. Tostones are fried plantains. I chose Tostones because they are a popular  Dominican food which is where my dad is from. Tostones are made by cutting up a plantain and frying them. After you fry them you have to smash them and fry them again. Sometimes,I make them and then dip them in homemade guacamole. You can fry them until they’re golden or you can fry them until they become brown and crispy.  You can top tostones with lots of things. Things like guacamole,cheese, shrimp, salsa, pico de gayo, olives, okra, pineapple, and fried coconut have all been used for toppings. Tostones have been used for appetizers at parties and main courses at restaurants. I eat Tostones in the summertime, when it is hot and humid outside. I like to eat them with lemonade. I hope I educated you on Tostones!
