1. A good dish
Veronica wants to cook some chicken for dinner tonight, but she doesn’t have all the ingredients for the recipe. She decides to go to the supermarket. She writes down a list of the things she needs and she leaves for some shopping. When she gets there, she gets a little nervous. There are a lot of people and the checkout lines are very long.
She hopes she will not be stayinghere for too long. She starts her shopping in the vegetables and fruits aisle and then she goes to meat aisle. When she sees the price of the chicken, she decides to change her mind. It is way too pricy. She is a little confused now because she doesn’t know what to cook anymore.
She continues her shopping, still thinking about tonight’s dinner. When she gets in front of the pasta aisle, it gives her a good idea. She is going to cook some macaroni, her husband Max’s favourite dish. She gets everything she needs and then she leaves.
2. How to make a salad
1. Firstly, get a bowl, and a head of lettuce. Make sure you wash the lettuce well. Break the leaves off, and rub the lettuce under cold water. Then dry.
2. After that, add some veggies that you like! Wash and chop up a few to throw in with the salad. Try to mix interesting flavors, such as tomatoes, celery, and herbs (fresh is best).
3. Go even further with some meat. If you want a salad with some extra protein, add some chopped pieces of turkey lunch meat or other meats.
4. Want to keep the salad vegetarian? Add some tofu or seitan chunks, and walnuts are good for any salad, meat-free or not.
5. Then mix all of your ingredients into the bowl and stir together. Add your favorite dressing.
6. Finally, serve. It’s the easy, healthy, and tasty snack full of crunchy and chewy ingredients.
3. The baby goose
It was Wednesday night. Taylor was coming back from work, tired and exhausted. He had a long day and he was looking forward to relax. It was impossible for him to expect what was about to happen though. When he got home, there it was, on the balcony: a baby goose.
Confused, he called his wife. “What’s up with the goose?” He asked. Why was there a baby goose on his balcony? That made no sense. His wife explained that she found the baby goose in the street, really hurt. Since she is a veterinarian, she knew she had to do something. She knew she had to do what’s good for the goose.
She took him home to take care of him until he gets better. She promises Taylor that it would always stay on the balcony, he will never get inside the house. Although Taylor is unsure about the idea, he agrees with his girlfriend; they have to do what’s good for the goose. Otherwise, the poor animal would die. Taylor finally accepted.
