第十八部 第十一課: munchies , spread

 
  • 美式足球超級杯那天,Larry 要在家開 party, 李華幫他做準備。李華今天要學兩個常用語,munchiesspread.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • I'm really excited about having a Super Bowl party, Li Hua. I just went to the store and bought lots of munchies, so we will have plenty to eat while we watch the football game.
  • Munchies? 讓我看看?(翻塑料袋的聲音)。薯條、花生、開心果,I don't see anything called "munchies."
  • Munchies is a general word for snacks or things to "munch" on, Li Hua. When watching a football game, I love to eat munchies like chips and pretzels.
  • 噢,原來munchies是零食的意思!有不鹹的嗎?
  • Yes, Li Hua, I do. In the refrigerator, I have some other munchies that I've prepared. I also made a vegetable tray and some sour cream dip.
  • Wow, 你準備了這麼多東西! 看超級杯原來這麼重要啊!
  • Watching the Super Bowl is something many Americans look forward to all year. And part of the fun is inviting friends over to watch the game and share some munchies.
  • 這跟中國球迷看足球世界盃差不多。他們也是圍著電視機,邊吃邊看,熱鬧極了。
  • Every body loves munchies. Speaking of munchies, are you hungry, Li Hua?
  • 我確實有點兒餓了,不過我不想把這些零食打開,我們還是等客人都到了再說吧!
  • Oh, don't worry about it, Li Hua. There are plenty of munchies. Go ahead and open what you like.
  • 那好,我先吃點花生,我最愛吃花生了。
  • I've got a bad case of the munchies, too, Li Hua. But instead of peanuts, I think I'll munch on some potato chips.
  • A *case* of the munchies? 你拿的明明是一帶零食啊!
  • When I said I have a case of the munchies, I meant I was really hungry for snacks.
  • Well, I guess I have a case of the munchies, too, Larry. 這些花生真是太好吃了。
  • The trouble with munchies is that once you start eating them - it is hard to stop.
  • 那我們還是忍忍吧,可別把這些零食都吃完了,否則一會兒看球賽的時候就沒的吃了。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Thanks for helping me put out the food, Li Hua. I hope this is enough of a spread for the Super Bowl party.
  • Enough of a spread? 這又是什麼意思啊?你是說足夠大家吃的吧?
  • A spread does refer to food, Li Hua - and specifically food set out on a table for a party. And the goal is to have lots of food!
  • 你準備的可真夠豐盛的,That's quite a spread, Larry. 你看,有薯條、花生、開心果、蔬菜、飲料、啤酒,真是應有盡有。
  • Well, when one puts together a spread, Li Hua, you not only want there to be lots of food, but you also want the spread to look good.
  • 所以說,spread不光是要準備充足的食物,還要擺放得整齊好看,讓人看了賞心悅目?
  • That's right. Like for this spread, I put the snacks in nice bowls, arranged the vegetables so they look attractive, and got these festive football napkins and cups.
  • 太棒了,Larry。我知道,你這一桌子食物,從盤子到紙杯,到餐巾紙,都跟橄欖球有關,最適合超級杯的party了.
  • Thanks, Li Hua. I'm glad you like it.
  • Larry, 你準備這一桌子東西要花很多錢嗎?
  • This spread wasn't very expensive. But I have been to parties where the hosts clearly spent a lot of money on gourmet foods and expensive wines.
  • 我還記得去年到市中心的一家大飯店去參加春節聯歡活動。They had quite a spread!
  • I bet it was some spread. You know how much I like Chinese food.
  • 那明年咱們一起去,你可以親眼看看!
  • While the spread I put together isn't as fancy as that, I just hope my friends will enjoy it.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 munchies, 是零食的意思。另一個是 spread, 指豐盛的食物
