`The Yummiest Meal of All
Writing a Descriptive Essay
There is one topic that seems to be interesting to everyone,--food. It is fun to compare
the different tastes that people have regarding the food that they eat. Some people think
that pizza is best with just cheese, but others may think that a pizza is not complete unless
it has vegetables and anchovies on it.
You are going to write about an ideal meal and describe it in such a way that the reader will
be able to visually smell and taste every bite.
In the first list, write the names of the foods you like to eat and in the second list as many
adjectives and phrases that you can think of that apply to that food.

yam mouth that is always grinning. There are five green
bean fingers on each hand and his belly button is a large
green pea. If Veggy ever gets hungry, he might eat himself
up and disappear completely.
