First, remember that the particular theme is not important. What you will be graded on is the writing style, attention to descriptive detail is most likely what is being looked for. Make a generous use of adjectives.
You are not writing an historical document. Accuracy of facts is necessary only in a journalism class where how the news is reported is obviously needed.
I was assigned how to catch a mouse as an essay, when I was in college. It took a good grade, and years, years later, I turned that paper into a full blown story which has been published as a children's book. (The Mouse with the Broken Tail). http://www.prlog.org/10798749-dan-shutte…
Perhaps, "The Breakfast that might have been" could be the title. You should not be thinking just about the physical actions, but what is going through the minds of those around the table.
