Soup for Dinner – Learning English Conversation


Okay. So Sarah, I see you eat soup every day at
work. Why are you eating soup every day? That’s because I love to cook soup. So you make the soup? Yes, it’s very easy to make. So you cook it and then you just bring it
to work everyday? Yeah. I just make a lot on Monday and then I bring
it to work everyday of the week. Oh nice. So how do you make the soup? What’s your secret? Well, I like to cook very easy. So I buy meat that’s already cut up, usually,
chicken and then some rice, usually brown rice and then I buy some vegetables. So after I bought the ingredients, I chop
them up and I put them all together in water until boils and add some seasoning. Okay. So you say the water boils, so as soon as
the water boils that’s when you put in all the ingredients? Yes, that’s right. So you don’t put in the ingredients before
the water boils. No. I guess, it’s just easier for the water
to be hot because then the vegetables and the meat cook a little faster. So how do you give the soup flavoring? I usually add salt and pepper, maybe some
garlic. And depending on the type of soup, either
maybe some soy sauce or lemon juice. Okay. Do you put in the flavoring after you put
in the ingredients or before you put in the ingredients? Maybe after but usually, right about all at
the same time. Okay. So I just put everything in at one time. And then after you cook the soup, do you put
the soup in the refrigerator? Do you let it sit outside? I usually eat some right then, and I also
put it in containers for the week. But I let it sit in the containers out on
the counter for a while for it to cool before I put in the refrigerator. All right. And so, you don’t put it in the refrigerator
until it is cool? Until it’s about room temperature. Okay, nice. And then how do you heat it up? Do you heat it up in a pot or do you heat
it up in the microwave? In the microwave. It’s the easiest. Yeah. Nice. So you make enough for five meals? Maybe, sometimes. If I think I will get tired of eating it during
the week then maybe I’ll just make enough for three or four meals. But if it’s some kind that I think is really
delicious and I know I want to eat it everyday, then I’ll make a lot. Well, if that happens, when you make the soup,
you can make it for six or seven and give me a bowl. Okay. I’ll do that next time. Oh great. Thanks.
