Dave: Hey there, folks. It's me, Dave from Dave on the Mall. The end of exams is near and winter break is fast approaching, so we wondered what dish - what homecooked meal - were Appalachian State students most looking forward to indulging in over their break. And that is exactly what we asked them.
Voice 1: When I go home over break, the meal that I'm looking forward to is my mom's homemade Mexican dish. It's basically a taco but in a casserole.
Voice 2: The thing I'm most looking forward to eating is lasagna.
Voice 3: The homecooked meal that I'm most looking forward to is latkes. It's a Jewish dish - my mom cooks it - it's pretty good - for Chanukah.
Voice 4: The thing I'm most looking forward to eating is my mom's chicken bog and turkey and mashed potatoes.
Voice 5: I'm most looking forward to eating my dad's steak and mashed potatoes.
Voice 6: What I'm most looking forward to eating... probably macaroni and cheese from my dad's restaurant.
Voice 7: I'm most looking forward to eating anything my mom cooks.
Voice 8: I'm most looking forward to having steak.
Voice 9: I'm most looking forward to just a nice steak and mashed potatoes.
Voice 10: I'm most looking forward to chocolate chip pumpkin bread. My mother's cooking it.
Voice 11: I think that the one meal that I'm looking forward to the most is probably just mama's homecooked spaghetti and meatballs with garlic. There's nothing like mama's cooking.
Voice 12: I'm mostly looking forward to having the classic roasted cow tongue. Only my mom makes it the way it should be.
Voice 13: I'm most looking forward to having my mom's talapia. She puts it with garlic and lemon and capers and it's really good. And she makes rice.
Voice 14: I'm looking forward to having tuna melts made by my mom.
Voice 15: Sometimes my grandma makes mashed potatoes and they're good.
Voice 16: I'm looking forward to having spaghetti. My dad makes it and they have it at least twice a week. So I know I'm going to have it a lot when I go home.
Voice 17: I'm most looking forward to having purple potatoes. They're potatoes that are purple.
Voice 18: I'm most looking forward to having a steak with cooked mushrooms, asparagus and mashed potatoes.
Voice 19: I'm looking forward to ham because it's something that we don't normally take the time to cook, so it's always special around Christmastime.
Voice 20: When I go home, I'm really looking forward to my dad's homemade burgers. He makes the cheese on the inside. They are so delicious.
Voice 21: My mom makes these crepes with nutella and bananas and marshmallow fluff. So, right when I get home, it's going to be nice and cold and that's going to be ready for me. And it's hot. That's what I'm looking forward to.
Voice 22: I'm really looking forward to having baked mac and cheese.
Voice 23: I'm most looking forward to having any food I want without having to worry about how much it costs. Anything free, I'm looking for. And I can eat as much of it as I want.
