WHO: Tonika Crockett, 32, of Tyler
WHAT: Carmen Jones
WHY: I’m really into musicals. I love the singing and the dancing, and the women look so elegant in their costumes. It was made in 1954. I used to watch it with my mom. I could — I have — watched it over and over.
WHO: Meka Anthony
WHAT: Fired chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy
WHAT: Garden salad
WHY: It’s the ultimate comfort food, I could eat it every day. Oh, with macaroni and cheese!
WHO: Travis Webb, Tyler
WHO: My father
WHY: My dad has had his ups and downs in life. At one point he went from owning his own business to bankruptcy. I remember seeing this man, who’d had million-dollar contracts, doing God only knows what — and coming home with bloody, blistered hands — to put food on the table. I’ve never known a better, harder working man and I highly doubt I ever will.
WHO: Sherri Horne, of Tyler, a hair stylist
WHAT: Lunch time
WHY: Lunch has always been my favorite meal. You eat a healthy lunch and it will carry you through the afternoon.
