March food reflection

Cake in a cup

  1. Why did you choose to reflect on this lab?I like the idea of having cake in the cup thought it was going to be a great lab
  2. Did you enjoy the lab? Why or why not?I enjoyed making them it was probably the easiest lab cause you bake it in a microwave
  3. Did your product turn out the way you had hoped? If yes, what helped? If no, why did it not? It did taste as good as expected but it was still delicious I think it was a mistake in the batter
  4. Did you group work well together during the lab? Why or why not? (i.e. were there any issues that came up/how did you solve them?) we worked very well together
  5. If you were to do this lab again, what might you do differently? Why? Different flavour batter may have made it taste better

February foods reflection

Carrot muffins

Why did you choose to reflect on this lab? I chose the carrot muffin to reflect on because they were easy and fun to make

Did you enjoy the lab? Why or why not? I enjoyed this lab because it was different from other muffins that I usually eat but it was very good. I don’t usually like carrot cake but the muffins were way better then I expected. 

Did your product turn out the way you had hoped? If yes, what helped? If no, why did it not? The muffins turned out preety good I don’t think we messed up but I feel like they could have been better

Did you group work well together during the lab? Why or why not? (i.e. were there any issues that came up/how did you solve them?) Are group worked great together

If you were to do this lab again, what might you do differently? Why? I would probably read the instructions a couple more times then try to make a better end product

Eating disorders

  • What is the eating disorder?

Binge eating has been recently recognized as a eating disorder.

  • Who does it typically affect?

But it might be the most common eating disorders, especially in the US.

Binge eating disorder is usually found in children and early adulthood, but it can also develop later on.

  • What are some major recognizable features of the disorder?

Common symptoms of binge eating disorder are:

Eating large amounts of foods rapidly, in secret and until uncomfortably full, even though they are not feeling hungry.

Cannot control themselves during binge eating.

Feelings of emotions , such as shame, disgust or guilt, when thinking about their binge-eating behavior.

No use of purging habits, such as calorie restriction, vomiting, excessive exercise or laxative use, to compensate for the binging.

  • How does it affect the body?

People with binge eating disorder are often overweight or obese. This may increase their risk of medical complications linked to excess weight, such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes

  • What are the causes of it?

Biological: hormonal irregularities or genetic mutations, may be associated with compulsive eating and food addiction.

Psychological:  there is a link between depression and binge eating. Body dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, and difficulty coping with feelings can also contribute to binge eating disorder.

Social and Cultural: Social pressures to be thin, which are typically influenced through media, can trigger emotional eating. Persons subject to critical comments about their bodies or weight may be especially vulnerable to binge eating disorder.

  • How can it be treated?
Treatment of binge eating disorder is challenging, because people feel ashamed of their disorder.
counseling that focuses on changing your thinking  and behavior may help
Family support is very important to treatment success. It helps your family members understand your eating disorder and recognize its signs and symptoms so they can support you better.In group therapy, you can find support and openly discuss your feelings and concerns with others who share common experiences and problems.


People with binge eating disorder regularly and uncontrollably consume large amounts of food in short periods of time. Unlike people with other eating disorders, they do not purge.

“Lord of the Flies” – island description

(We are mapping out the island of the novel Lord of the Flies by using the quotes you read in the novel)

1) Forest Where Fire Happened

“The pile was so rotten, and now so tinder-dry, that whole limbs yielded passionately to the yellow flames that poured upwards and shook a great beard of flame twenty feet in the air. For yards round the fire the heat was like a blow, and the breeze was a river of sparks. Trunks crumbled to white dust.” (56)

2) The Conch Location

“The shore was fledged with palm trees. These stood or leaned or reclined against the light and their green feathers were a hundred feet up in the air.” (10)

3) The Fruit Tree

“He picked his way up the scar, passed the great rock where Ralph had climbed on the first morning, then turned off to his right among the trees. He walked with an accustomed tread through the acres of fruit trees, where the least energetic could find an easy if unsatisfying meal.” (77)

4) The Scar

“between the scar and the sea. There, too, jutting into the lagoon, was the platform, with insect-like figures moving near it.” (39)

5) Lagoon

“A great platform of pink granite thrust up uncompromisingly through forest and terrace and sand and lagoon to make a raised jetty four feet high.” (13)

6) Mountain

“his eyes and followed the jagged outline of the crags up toward the moun- tain. This part of the beach was nearer the mountain than any other that they had seen.” (33)

7) The Coral Reef

”The reef enclosed more than one side of the island, lying perhaps a mile out and parallel to what they now thought of as their beach. The coral was scribbled in the sea as though a giant had bent down to reproduce the shape of the island in a flowing chalk line but tired before he had finished. Inside was peacock water, rocks and weeds showing as in an aquarium; outside was the dark blue of the sea. The tide was running so that long streaks of foam tailed away from the reef and for a moment they felt that the boat was moving steadily astern (38).

8) The Jungle

“All round him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat. He was clambering heavily among the creepers and broken trunks…”(6)

9) The Island

“It was roughly boat-shaped: humped near this end with behind them the jumbled descent to the shore. On either side rocks, cliffs, treetops and a steep slope: forward there, the length of the boat, a tamer descent, tree-clad, with hints of pink: and then the jungly flat of the island, dense green, but drawn at the end to a pink tail” (38)

10) The Platform

“Here the beach was interrupted abruptly by the square motif of the landscape; a great platform of pink granite thrust up uncompromisingly through forest and terrace and sand and lagoon to make a raised jetty four feet high. The top of this was covered with a thin layer of soil and coarse grass and shaded with young palm trees” (13).

11) the site of the signal fire- Slowly the silence on the mountain-top deepened till the click of the fire and the soft hiss of roasting meat could be heard clearly. Jack looked round for understanding but found only respect. Ralph stood among the ashes of the signal fire, his hands full of meat, saying nothing.

Walter Mitty 6th dream

“He took one last drag on his cigarette and snapped it away. Then with that faint, fleeting smile playing about his lips, he faced the firing squad; erect and motionless, proud and disdainful, Walter Mitty the Undefeated, inscrutable to the last.”
Mitty notices a man walking up behind the firing squad. He’s quite they don’t see him coming he pulls out a revolver shots fired one bullet in all the squad members heads. The inscrutable man starts to walk over towards Mitty. Mitty draws his gun the man grabs it right out of his hands and says “thank you”… the man said do you have a lighter Mitty handed it over and lit the cigarette that Mitty just gave him.

“what’s your name?” Asked Mitty

He said “Eric Erickson what are you waiting back here for?”

“The names Mitty and my wife is in the store what brings you here?”

“Out for walk and forgot my cigarettes at home” said Eric “I’m gonna head back home thanks for the talk.”

His wife walks out of the store with the stuff she needed. They get in the car and start to head home. On the way home they pass by this store with a man sneaking around back they didn’t know what it was about so they left it alone and went home. When Mitty got home he walked the dog to the park. They played at the park and the dog was so well behaved Mitty gave him one of the puppy biscuits he just bought. When he got home his wife asked him to check the mail and he saw a flier for army recruits…

222 days in enemy territory; I’ve been so deep undercover that I forgot who’s side I’m really on. My name what’s my name I know it’s Eric Erickson but before that what was my name. “Ahah!” I shouted it so loud that everyone stoped and stared at me then there was a dead silence. In my head I said to my self my name is Mitty how could I forget that such an important detail like that. It’s not like me to forget I remember everything that happens in a day then I report it back home but, today was different I got caught. I had a distraught look on my face. I was starting to panic because everyone was in pandemonium about me being a spy. A man started to walk to me and then put his hand on my shoulder he was going to stab me…

“Mitty your dinner is getting cold come eat” his wife said

“ok lets go eat” said Mitty

Plot Point Photo Compilation

The plot point photo project is based on the short story, “Father and Son” written by Bernard MacLaverty. In this project the reader will notice that the pictures are based on plot points from the story such as: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, denouement. In the story, “Father and Son,” the father is a coward that is afraid that, “the world is waiting round the corner to blow your head off” (MacLaverty 167). The son is a previous drug user that the dad, “had to go and collect … Like a dog” (MacLaverty 168). The son also goes out late with friends that the dad hasn’t ever seen before. Their relationship has a lot of miscommunication, tension and anger. The father cannot properly express his feelings towards his son. The son cannot properly share important details in his life with his father. As result of their miscommunication, they tend to get tense and explode in anger towards, other saying things they usually wouldn’t say.

The exposition starts with the father looking at the son, “this is my son who will let me down” (MacLaverty 165). As one can see his son does not like his father and the father knows that his son is not to fond of him. This shows that.  Their relationship is not positive and is a negative thing for the two of them. This is a possible exposition to the story cause it introduces the father and the son and, their unhealthy relationship

Rising Action starts when the father is talking about his dead wife, “my son is braking my heart. It’s already it my fault there is no women i th house? Is it my fault  good women should die?” (MacLaverty). One could think that because of this event both of them dealt with it in different ways and that it is one of the factors of their poor miscommunication. It could have separated them into to different paths.

The second part of the rising action is seeing that the son thinks his dad is a coward, “you’re a coward. You think the world is waiting around the corner to blow your head off” (MacLaverty 167). The father thinks that the son is only alive now because of him, “you are living on borrowed time. Your hand shook when you got home. I have given you the life you now have” (MacLaverty 167). This is a key part in the story cause it shows that they don’t really have it ll together. Their is possibly more hate then love in their relationship.

Father and son shouting

In the climax the dad says “i had to go collect you like a dog” (MacLaverty 168) because the son has done some bad stuff in the past; the father is worried that he will do it again. He also thought he was dead so, the son proceeds to say ” well im not dead.” (MacLaverty 168) then says “I have not touched the stuff since i came back” (MacLaverty 168). This shows that the son has struggled with dugs and has bigger problems then the reader thought he had . The dad is worried that it’s happening all over again.

In the falling action  the father goes to apologize and opens the door to find “the door swings open and he pushes a hand-gun beneath his pillow” (MacLaverty 169) the Dad is shocked and the son pushes the door shut. He goes on his knees and starts to pray.

in conclusion the son gets shot by someone he was talking to at the door, “there is a bang… my son is lying on the floor… blood is spilling from his nose” (MacLaverty 169) one may think this is the conclusion because the son has died so its sad but technically they would not be able to fight or talk to each other ever again.


Two Fisherman

Character sketch

In the story “Two Fisherman” written by Morley Callaghan the character Smitty is, “A mild,

harmless-looking little guy”( Morley Callaghan 1). He is also the executioner in the story he came to

town for two things to fish and to execute Thomas Delaney. Smitty is a nice person. He wanted to go

fishing to bring home fish for his wife, so he could feed his family. Smitty looks like, “ A little fellow

without a hat, sitting down with his knees hunched up to his chin, a very small man with little grey baby

curls on the back of his neck” ( Morley Callaghan 1). Smitty becomes friends with Michael the other

main character in the book over a fishing trip; they did not catch any fish, so Smitty offered to go again

tomorrow. Smitty was hesitant to answer Michael’s questions about his work because if he told him that

he was the executioner that he would just perceive him as a bad person. Smitty’s job as the executioner

makes him seem like a bad person because his job is killing people, so he is usually not loved by the

people. Before he did the execution he gave Michael two fish that he caught that day because Michael

couldn’t come fishing again. Then he did his job and executed Thomas Delaney. On that day their were

reporters there to report the event, and Michael was one of them. They all didn’t like Smitty for killing

him but that was still his job. They all threw any objects they could find at him. One might think that is

not fair because he is just doing his job like anyone else. Then someone stole the fish the Smitty gave

Michael and threw it at him; so Smitty felt betrayed.
