(单词翻译:单击)

Ryan: It’s really nice of you to make dinner for me. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a home-cooked meal.
你为我做晚餐,你真是太好了。从我上次做家里做的菜已经有很长一段时间了。

Corrie: I’m happy to do it. First, though, let’s see what you have in your fridge.
我很高兴为你做晚饭。首先,我们来看看冰箱里有什么食物。

Ryan: I have tons of food in there.
冰箱里有很多食物。

Corrie: What is that? It looks moldy.
这是什么?看起来发霉了。

Ryan: Oh, that’s cheese. I’m sure it’s still good, if we just cut off the moldy parts.
哦,那是奶酪。如果我们只是切掉发霉的部分,我敢肯定奶酪还能吃。

Corrie: Okay, but look at the best if used by date. This expired three months ago. What about this?
好吧,看看食物保质期。3个月前就过期了。这是什么?

Ryan: That’s hamburger. Maybe you could make some spaghetti with meatballs.
这是汉堡包。也许你可以用肉丸子做一些意大利面条。

Corrie: Not with this rotten meat. It’s definitely gone bad. Can’t you tell by the discoloration? Meat isn’t supposed to be gray.
用这个烂肉不行。肉肯定是坏了。从颜色上你看不出来吗?肉不应该是灰色的。

Ryan: I guess you’re right. I bet this milk isn’t any good either, is it?
我想你说得对。我敢打赌,这牛奶也不新鲜了,是吗?

Corrie: Nope. It’s gone sour, and you might as well throw out this bread, too. It’s stale.
是的。奶已经变酸了,这个面包你也可以扔了,时间太长了。

Ryan: Isn’t there anything you can use in this kitchen?
厨房里难倒没有可用的食物了吗?

Corrie: Well, this oil is rancid, this butter looks tainted, the vegetables are wilted, and even your canned goods are rusted. You do have a lot of food in your kitchen, but it’s been here a long, long time.
油已经发臭了,黄油看上去已经变质了,蔬菜都枯萎了,甚至你的罐头食品都生锈了。厨房里确实有很多食物,但食物都已经放了很长,很长时间了。

Ryan: I don’t like things to go to waste.
我不喜欢浪费东西。

Corrie: I guess not. I’m still willing to make you dinner, but we’ll have to do some shopping. My cooking isn’t the best, but I don’t usually give people food poisoning, and I don’t want to start now.
我想你不会。我还是愿意给你做饭,但我们必须去买些东西。我的厨艺是不是最好的,但我通常不会让别人吃了会食物中毒,更不想从现在就开始。

Ryan: Okay, okay, give me a list and I’ll go to the market.
好吧,好吧,给我一个清单,我会去市场买。

Corrie: And while you’re there, I’ll see what I can do about getting rid of all of this hazardous waste!
既然你在这里,我去看看能把哪些变质的东西扔掉!

go bad. 变质了
