Back, Dani. Why don't you type up what you have so far?
Well so far i have nothing new. Because i had to make this tres leches cake that i havent even finished yet, and my mom didnt get me ingredients like i asked so i had ot go to the store and get that too.
I'm really behind Jen and i need to finish this tonight.
If this is impossible to help with can someone let me know so i'm not waiting?
I finished making the two cakes so i'm here all night until i finish.
Danii- It's hard to help when you don't have anything started yet. We can't write it for you, but we are happy to critique and edit what you come up with. What do you need help with right now?
Why don't you try to draft your first paragraph and then I can edit and critique it?
Yes i know you cant write it for me. I'm just really stressed i guess. I dont mean to be a bug though, I'm writing and so far i think i have a little but, When i finish writing about a certain section like breakfast...can i keep going into it by saying the rest of the courses?
Sure, you could do that. You could say how something about how the typical Domenican has blahblahblah for breakfast, blahblahblah for lunch, blahblahblahh (rice and chicken) for dinner and blahblahblah (something very sugary?) for dessert. You could pick the most popular dishes for that part. Then you could say other popular breakfast dishes are....and so on.
Ohkay well im going to try and write more and then show you so you can look over it for mee?
Sure, that's fine. Just so you know, I'm probably going to bed around 12 but I will be checking for your replies until then.
Ohkay its ten twenty five here, i'll try to be quick for you. Thanks again like i said i've been searching for someone to help me all afternoon.
It's 11:30 here. You're welcome.
Ohhh ohkay. Well i'll let you read what i have so far?

When I found out I was doing Dominican Republic I was very much excited, because I had heard that the Dominican Republic’s food was similar to Puerto Rico and Cuba’s especially when I heard that I could make my personal sweet treat favorite, Tres Leches. In the Dominican Republic ‘s breakfast plan they usually made it consist of the following foods, A well known food called “Mangu”, which is green plantains that have been boiled then mashed and served with onions they also add fried shallots, cheese, salami, fried eggs and orange juice. Later on the typical Dominican lunch would be the traditional “La Bandera Dominicana” or otherwise known as the Dominican Flag it is greatly known that it is a popular national dish and its eaten nearly by everyone at lunch time. “La Bandera Dominicana” got its name because it consists of white rice and red beans which remind people of flag colors, the dish also consists of meat veggies and fried plantains to ensure energy for throughout their day.
errr..didnt mean to put the name aand everything in with it =_____=
Ok, I'll read it now. Keep going and I'll comment back in a bit.
By the way, what grade are you in?
I'm fixing to be a junior. . .?
i cant find what Dominicans eat for dinner. its either
"Dinner is usually light on the stomach, which may be just a simple sandwich and a refreshing drink using natural fruit juices or a cup of hot chocolate or tea, depending on the season."
Or this one but the first said they dont eat much?
we call them "viveres"
which is plantains, yuca, green bananas, sweet potatos
(not all in one night but one of these vegetables)
with eggs, pork chops or salami on the side"
That's a good start. I made some changes to avoid run on sentences and awkward wording.
When I found out that I would be researching Dominican Republic, I was very excited because I knew that I could make my personal sweet treat favorite, Tres Leches. This (talk about what kind of food it is, maybe "extremely sweet dessert" if it is? I don't know, I've never had it) is a tradional (or popular, or another word similar to that, I use popular a lot here, so try to think of more) dessert in the Dominican Republic. In the Dominican Republic, breakfast usually consists of several foods. Mangu, green plantains and onions, that have been boiled and mashed is one of the most popular. They also have fried shallots, cheese, salami, fried eggs and orange juice. Later on the typical Dominican lunch would be the traditional “La Bandera Dominicana”, otherwise known as the Dominican Flag. This is a popular national dish and its eaten nearly by everyone at lunch time (mention the time if you can find it). “La Bandera Dominicana” got its name because it consists of white rice and red beans which remind people of flag colors, the dish also consists of meat veggies and fried plantains to ensure energy for throughout their day.
I believe that they eat more earlier in the day. They may have the food you have listed for dinner, but not much of it.
