我妈妈做饭非常好吃。还记得小的时候,每天中午都在学校的食堂吃饭,但我总不愿意吃,太难吃了!跟我妈妈做的差别太大。后来,我妈妈只能早上做好饭,让我带到学校。到现在,我每次回家都特别期待妈妈做的饭。 Wǒ māma zuòfàn fēicháng hǎochī. Hái jìde xiǎo de shíhou, měi tiān zhōngwǔ dōu zài xuéxiào de shítáng chīfàn, dàn wǒ zǒng bú yuànyì chī, tài nánchī le! Gēn wǒ māma zuò de chābié tài dà. Hòulái, wǒ māma zhǐ néng zǎoshang zuòhǎo fàn, ràng wǒ dài dào xuéxiào. Dào xiànzài, wǒ měi cì huí jiā dōu tèbié qīdài māma zuò de fàn. My mother’s cooking is delicious. I remember when I was little, I used to eat in the school canteen at lunchtime, but I was always unwilling to eat there – the food tasted so bad! It was so different from my mum’s. Afterwards, my mum had no choice but to prepare food in the morning, and have me take to it school. Even now, every time I go back home I really look forward to my mum’s cooking.
问题是,我自己不会做饭。我已经是大人, 还是一点也不会。很多次,我妈妈试图教我做饭,但我就是学不会,连米饭我都做不好! Wèntí shì, wǒ zìjǐ bú huì zuòfàn. Wǒ yǐjīng shì dàrén, háishì yì diǎn yě bú huì. Hěn duō cì, wǒ māma shìtú jiāo wǒ zuòfàn, dàn wǒ jiùshì xué bú huì, lián mǐfàn wǒ dōu zuò bù hǎo! The problem is that I can’t cook myself. I’m now an adult, but I still can’t cook at all. My mum has tried to teach me to cook many times, but I just can’t learn – I can’t even cook rice!
有一次我要做蛋炒饭。应该很简单,但是我一边做饭,一边看电视。电视节目很好看,我一直在笑。突然发现有味道了,饭已经变黑了,有很多烟!当时我很想哭!好吧,还是去饭馆比较好! Yǒu yí cì wǒ yào zuò dànchǎofàn. Yīnggāi hěn jiǎndān, dànshì wǒ yì biān zuò fàn, yì biān kàn diànshì. Diànshì jiémù hěn hǎo kàn, wǒ yìzhí zài xiào. Tūrán fāxiàn yǒu wèidào le, fàn yǐjīng biàn hēi le, yǒu hěn duō yān! Dāngshí wǒ hěn xiǎng kū! Hǎo ba, háishì qù fànguǎn bǐjiào hǎo! Once I wanted to make egg fried rice. This should be very simple, but I was watching TV while cooking. The TV programme was really good – I was laughing the whole time. Suddenly I noticed there was a smell – the food had turned black and there was a lot of smoke! I felt like crying! Yes, it would be better just to go to a restaurant!
