31 Days of Learning English – DAY 16 – improve your English – In the Kitchen / phones – 16th October


oh look at the view today it is looking
rather nice outside the window because the sun is out the sky is blue and there
isn’t a single cloud to spoil my view welcome to another day of 31 days of
learning English during October 2019 hi everybody this is mr. Duncan in
England how are you today are you ok I hope so are you happy I
really really hope so here we are together all together live on YouTube
yes I’m not joking we are here right now as live as live can be there it is look
4 minutes past 2 o’clock on what is it what is today ah it’s Wednesday yes it’s Wednesday welcome to another
day of live English and of course because it’s Wednesday we are in the
kitchen I have a feeling that you may have already noticed that because
clearly I am in the kitchen I’m definitely not in the toilet I am
definitely not in the studio I’m not in the garden I am in the kitchen so
welcome to another livestream for those who are wondering what this is all about
well I am doing this during October to celebrate my 13th year on youtube so for
those who are wondering why I’m doing this and I can tell you once more this
has nothing to do with brexit nothing whatsoever monday to friday 2 p.m. UK
time also on saturday 12 p.m. just after midday and on sunday 2 p.m. all the way
through october has a special way of celebrating my 13 years so at the end of
this month on the 31st of October it will be my 13th anniversary also I
suppose we should mention that it is also brexit day on the 31st of October
isn’t that strange sometimes fate can be a very strange thing and as you can see
bricks it will also be taking place the second attempt at leaving the European
Union because it was supposed to happen on March the 29th but they decided to
postpone it and now it will be happening or as far as we know it will be
happening on the same day as my anniversary so not only is the 31st of
October Halloween it is also my anniversary on YouTube and can you
believe it also it is brexit day i must apologize today my throat is feeling
a little bit sensitive I think I have a little bit of asthma at the moment so I
have my asthma medication ready just in case I have to take a little puff from
my medicine so yes I’m suffering a little bit today with asthma I think it
is the change in the weather so as the seasons change especially at the moment
because the cold air is starting to return to the UK so I do apologize if my
voice sounds a little strange today in places I will try my best to
persevere I will try to carry on so here we go I suppose we should mention the
live chat hello to the live chat nice to see you here
welcome to my little kitchen in Much Wenlock and i suppose i should also say
hello to ciao hello ciao and also by anne and Yaman you are
the first three people on today’s live chat I’m feeling very generous today normally
I give the applause to one person but I thought today because I’m feeling very
generous I don’t know why I thought I would give the applause to Joe by Anne
and also llaman is well if Irene is watching yes I did receive your video
and I will be showing it later on today so today we will see a lovely video from
Irene something very unusual concerning animals oh I wonder what that could be
all about also thank you very much once a game to Mika for sending some lovely
photographs from your recent trip that you took in Japan and I will be showing
those later on as well but once more let’s have a look outside beautiful day
the Sun is out everything is looking nice you can see just in the distance
you can see a little bit of the blue sky on the horizon everything is rather nice
today I must admit and as I woke up this morning I looked at the window and the
first thing I saw was this oh look at that you can really see that the leaves
are starting to turn when the leaves turn it means that autumn has arrived
and when we say turn we mean the colour of the leaves they change sometimes they
change from green to yellow and sometimes they change from green to red
so it depends really on the type of tree but already you can see my garden there
are leaves already that have fallen from one of my trees in the garden so that is
what was happening this morning when I woke up from my slumber
meanwhile here in the kitchen I’ve got a lot of things to show you
many things to explain to you now I thought today I would show some of the
types of food that I eat and maybe today you will realize that perhaps my eating
habits are a little unhealthy also I should mention that we haven’t done any
shopping for nearly three weeks so at the moment we are actually running low
on food so today I’m showing you some of the things but not everything because I
have to do an online shop so that’s what is happening so today we will have to is
that upside down I think it is sorry we will have to make do so when you make do
it means you manage with what you have quite often if you come to a situation
where you only have a little bit of food left in your kitchen you will have to
make do perhaps you only have a little bit of money left you have to make do so
this is a very interesting phrase that we use quite often in English when we
are talking about survival so maybe you only have a little bit of food left so
you have to make do I’m sorry we don’t have much in I will
make some food for you but we will have to make do so to make do means to have
what is there even if there is only a small amount of the thing available so
you are you are forced to make do you will have to make do an interesting
question that I’m going to ask today very interesting question now I as you
know I love technology very much I am a big fan of Technology just to show you
how Tecna is really amazing if you actually click
there you can actually have captions live can you believe it
so if you press this on your keyboard during the live stream you can actually
watch what I’m saying with captions live it’s incredible so that’s why I
love technology before and always so I’ve always been interested in
electronics since I was a little child I always remember the first time I tried
to do something with an electrical device I was very young and I actually
took my mother’s hair dryer to pieces I actually I got a screwdriver and I
actually took my mother’s hair dryer to pieces needless to say she was not
pleased so I have always been fascinated since an early age about things that
work using electricity and of course all sorts of Technology however an
interesting conversation took place the other night at the dinner table between
myself and Steve and I was asking Steve what did you do before we had all of
this wonderful technology so what did we do what did we do before we had cell
phones for example so I think this is a good one to start with
so what did we do before we had cell phones can you remember that far back so
I suppose if you are a very young person maybe you don’t remember a time when
there were no cell phones so maybe cell phones have been around
all your life however for some people like me I remember when there were no
cell phones there were no mobile phones I can remember a time
before computers before we had computers in our house before everyone had at
least one computer device in their house somewhere I remember the time before
that happened in fact I remember when people were first talking about the age
of computers before that age arrived so what did we do before cellphones and I
suppose I could also extend that by saying computers as well can you imagine
what it must have been like well I don’t have to imagine because I lived through
that time so what we used to do when we were young when I was young when I was
living at home with my family we would have one of these can you see it just
behind me we would have one of these in the house a telephone one telephone in
the house that’s all we would have the only problem was of course you could
only use the telephone in the house yes hello yes mr. Duncan here what you want
me to go into town to meet you okay then I will see you in 10 minutes
oh there is a problem here I want to take my phone with me but I can’t I
can’t because it’s attached so this particular phone cannot come with me
because this is fixed so before we had mobile phones before we had cell phones
all you had was one of these quite often in your house or sometimes you would
share one phone in a certain area so that’s it
so before we had cell phones you to take your telephone with you if you
were going to be late you were late you couldn’t even tell the other person who
was waiting for you in town that you were going to be late there was no way
of letting that person know so when we talk about different types of telephone
in the past most people would use something called a landline or home
phone so your landline would be the phone that is fixed in your house you
would have no choice that is it that is the only way that you could contact
people immediately by landline or by your home phone now we didn’t have a
telephone in our house until around 1983 so before that we didn’t even have a
telephone so it was even harder to let people know where we were and what we
were doing when we were away from home so we didn’t have ha our first telephone
until 1983 and that was something called a landline so the landline means the
cable that goes all away from the post office exchange all the way to your
house and quite often we would also call it your home phone so the landline or
your home phone landline of course we still have landlines but quite often now
they are very high-tech they use fiber optics to bring superfast broadband to
your house if you are lucky enough to have that of course some people don’t if
you couldn’t contact someone straightaway of course there was an
alternative you could use a pay phone or call box so you could use a payphone
which means that you would go into a little box and you would pick up
the phone and then you would dial the number and if the person answered you
would have to put some money inside the telephone so that was the only way of
contacting someone at home and of course quite often the person you were calling
might also be out so you can’t contact them directly so before we had cell
phones before we had our mobile phones it was very hard to get in touch with
someone in fact the only way you could do it was by using a pay phone or call
box of course there is another way or there was and there still is another way
of getting in touch with people and that is through the postal system does anyone
still use the postal system now maybe you send parcels or gifts or cards to
people maybe on their birthday but for most of the time we don’t send letters
do you still write letters to people so if you use the postal service
it means you send a letter or maybe a package from one place to another so
quite often the postal system was the only way we could stay in touch with
someone over a long distance or someone far away so beside the telephone you
could only write a letter can you believe that and to make matters worse
that there weren’t even any computers so people didn’t have computers at home you
couldn’t send email because there was no email you couldn’t write a text message
because you couldn’t do it the technology didn’t exist however you
could send something called a telex which came along later so you could kind
of send something through the telephone we
would come out at the other end and of course later they were known as faxes so
a fax machine allowed you to print a letter or a note in your home and it was
sent from another place although nowadays I don’t think anyone uses fax
machines who remembers the fax machine I remember when they first came out and I
thought there were the most amazing thing you could actually send a letter
through your telephone incredible so a lot of things to talk about today and I
thought that was a good thing to talk about because we were talking about it
the other night sometimes me and Steve we talked about
all sorts of things all sorts of deep topics what about you what are you
talking about today what do you want to say Patrick is here I remember when I
first downloaded a song from the internet it took me ages so if something
takes you ages it means it takes you a long time to do it maybe 24 hours for
one song and of course in the early days of the internet when the internet was
still a baby we only had a very slow connection around 56 kilobytes which is
nothing so I remember sometimes I will open things maybe a photograph on my
computer and it would take ages for the photograph to open so the photograph
would slowly open on your screen like that and then slowly you would see what
the photograph was you would eventually get the whole photograph on your screen
but because the connection was so slow it would take a long time so yes Patrick
I understand what you mean arts be says telephone box is yes you can also say
box so here in the UK we will often say pay phone or call box or telephone box
having said that you will find that most towns don’t actually have telephone
boxes anymore and if they do you can’t put money
inside them so I don’t know how you use them nowadays I think you use your
credit card or your debit card I think that’s how you use them I can’t remember
the last time I used a pay phone or a call box or a telephone box I can’t
remember the last time I actually used one in the little village where I live
we have a telephone box however the telephone inside has been
removed so we don’t even have a telephone in the little area where I
live so there is no telephone box near my house but fortunately we have our
mobile phones we have our cell phones so it is very easy these days to keep in
touch blue thunder says oh I like your kitchen camera yes we are in the kitchen
today a lot of things to do today and already it is twenty-five past two I am
going to show you some of the things that I eat and you will notice
straightaway that many of the things are quite unhealthy now I make no apologies
sometimes I like to have a snack I like to have a meal sometimes maybe I’m a
little bit lazy and I don’t want to cook in fact that happens quite often Oh last
night by the way last night we had a lovely meal I did mention this yesterday
we had a really nice meal and there it is that is the actual meal we had last
night some Indian food oh my so I will tell you the names of this
food first of all on the the right so if you look on the right on your screen you
will see something that looks like it’s a triangle so two triangles and they are
called Somozas so samosa is the name of that particular food it is a type of
pastry that is folded over and quite often it is fried inside you can have
vegetables or you can have meat such as chicken or maybe lamb so last night we
had lamb samosa so that is the word samosa I will show you the other things
that we had last night as well the one in the middle can you see it in
the middle now those actually look the same so the ones in the middle and the
ones on the far left look similar but actually they are different so the ones
in the middle are called would you like to know what they’re called they are
called pakora pakora it is a type of food that is normally mixed with
vegetables and quite often you will use something called gram flour gram flour
so pakoras are normally made with vegetables or sometimes meat and quite
often they are made using a thing called gram flour which is basically ground-up
chickpeas so you grind the chickpeas into a powder and then you use it in the
same way as you would use flour so the the one in the middle
we’ll show you again the one in the middle is called pakora and then the one
on the end the one on the far left has a very interesting name the name of that
one is BA G bar G so that particular one is very similar to pakora except the
flavor is slightly different and quite often you will make the bar G with
onions and once again sometimes you will use something called gram flour which is
made from chickpeas can I just say that barges samosas and pakoras are quite
delicious very nice would you like to see them on
the plate okay then here they are on the plate after being served oh yes there
they are and can you see something else is there as well
one of my all-time favorite foods baked beans I absolutely love baked beans they
are so versatile baked beans are a type of food that go with so many things I
would describe baked beans as versatile I like that word versatile so something
that is versatile is something that goes with many things or it can be used in
many ways you can use it in that way or you can use it in that way in fact you
can use it in many ways it is very versatile versatile what is some
user Somoza is a type of pastry that is folded over and inside you quite often
have meat or vegetables inside Somozas and all of those things are actually
typical Indian food Fabiana says unfortunately when I went to London I
saw that people were using the red telephone boxes as toilets can I just
say that has always happened I remember growing up if I had to go into a
telephone box quite often it would smell of someone’s urine so that wasn’t
unusual even 20 30 40 years ago so telephone boxes were well known for
being used as toilets and I’m sure they still are probably more so hello Rakesh
mr. Duncan you are teaching about samosas bhaji it is Hindi language not
English well I know that I know that it’s Indian food and I absolutely love
spicy food I really do so that is what we had last night to eat we had samosas
barcia’s and also pakora with one of my all-time favorite foods yes baked beans
shall I show you my baked beans right now so this is a very versatile meal
something very simple all you have to do is open the cab
pour it into the sauce pan and gently heat it don’t boil it never boil your
baked beans because you will spoil the taste so that is something I love eating
in fact can I said can I just tell you a story about these baked beans because
last night we were going to have baked beans but
unfortunately we realized that we didn’t have any so mr. Steve ah mr. Steve is so
sweet sometimes mr. Steve went out in the car
and he went into town to buy some baked beans is not lovely although I’m sure
one or two of you will be complaining because it isn’t very environmentally
friendly to go out in your car to buy some baked beans not only that but the
baked beans will also produce methane when you start farting so I would say
that everything that happened last night is probably not very environmentally
friendly so mr. Steve went into town to get some baked beans and then the baked
beans after we eat them will makers fart and then the methane will go into the
atmosphere so I would say that baked beans are probably not environmentally
friendly I think it would be fair to say however they are delicious I think we
might be having them tonight as well with something else I will show you that
later hello to the live chat what type of spices are used in Indian food well
you can have chili you can have garam masala garam masala is a very lovely
flavor you will often find it in all sorts of food mr. Duncan I can teach you
about life I want to know about life actually what is the most important
thing in our life please mr. Duncan reply says Rakesh well I suppose the
most important thing in your life is to stay positive and happy I know it’s a
cliche and I know that nowadays many people talk about happiness and how to
get it but I think it is important and I’ve just noticed
that this tin of beans actually matches my shirt it’s the same color as my shirt
how strange I’ve just noticed that how bizarre so
happiness is something always be fascinated by life always be fascinated
by the world around you I am every day I try to learn something new about this
world we live in so always stay curious always stay inquisitive always pursue
knowledge try to learn something new every day and of course I suppose doing
something you enjoy so if you are lucky enough to find a job that you really
love doing or maybe something in your life that you do but also something that
allows you to live then you are a very lucky person indeed every morning when I
wake up I always wake up with a smile people don’t believe me but I do every
morning when I wake up the first thing I do is smile because I know that I am
lucky to see another day I get to do this all over again how amazing is that
it’s incredible so I will put my baked beans over there and there is the word baked beans so
baked beans have been around for a very long time and they are very popular if
you want to make a meal quickly if you want to make a meal in a hurry we often
we often cook baked beans apparently Cowboys eat a lot of baked
beans they really do win for Cambo says I also noticed that your shirt is
matching the beans who thinks oh how strange is that
hello also – Nadia hello Nadia nice to see you here would you like to see
something funny I love receiving your messages hello to Irene and thank you
very much for the video that you sent showing a very unusual moment of time it
is a dog and a crow playing with a ball look at that now that is so unusual
apparently the dog is called bit off and the crow is called camel or maybe it’s
the other way round I’m not quite sure Thank You Irene for sending that video
it is something you don’t often see in fact I’m so fascinated by it let’s have
a look at it again so I think the dog is called Camille and I think the crow is
called B cough I think so if Irene is watching maybe you can tell me if I’ve
got that right or wrong thank you very much and of course I love hearing from
you if you want to get in touch with me you can you can follow me on Facebook
and also you can email me as well look you can email me you can
send your emails there it is look look can you see it there and also there
Facebook I have an official Facebook page as well so there are many ways of
getting in touch with me many ways indeed Meeker
thank you very much Meeker you have sent something quite amazing now Meeker has
been away on a lovely sightseeing trip and Meeker went to a very interesting
part of Japan would you like to have a look
hello I visited Tohoku the Tohoku area which is the northern area of Japan and
I enjoy driving on the mountain road the leaves hadn’t changed enough their color
but a fantastic view from a mountain impressed me a lot
so these are some lovely photographs that Mika has sent all the way from
Japan and you can see there are some lovely views it it looks as if the
weather was quite nice in fact so you were lucky enough to have some really
nice weather although it looks a little bit cloudy there can I just say as well
how how glad I was to hear that you you weren’t affected too much by the
terrible typhoon that hit Japan look at that now that I like that view you’ve
got the beautiful mountains in the background and look at the trees many of
them are already starting to turn oh my goodness
I do like that I love looking at forests I love being amongst trees I love being
around nature and there is nothing better than being around trees look at
that isn’t that amazing thank you very much these are great
scenes and I hope you had a great time during your holiday and let’s have a
look at another photo here it comes right now oh look at that now is that
the sea in the distance that looks like the sea it isn’t mist no definitely I
think that is definitely the sea in the distance so thank you very much Mika for
your lovely photographs from a place called Tohoku Tohoku thank you very much
for that Wow how kind of you and I do appreciate when you take your time
to send things to me so even though Mika was having a vacation she was still
taking some photographs but for us isn’t that lovely
so thank you very much for that how kind of you
and yes nature is life oh I like that thank you shinobi I also Christina says
I will send you my next video about my trip to Crete I have never been to Crete
I’ve been to Corfu but I’ve never been to Crete I believe it’s a very nice
place very historic rakesh and also Anna is here Thank You Mika for the beautiful
photos I don’t know if meteor is here is Mika here today I haven’t seen her on
the live chat so I don’t know if beaker is here a very unusual situation you
don’t often see dogs playing with birds or birds and dogs together it is a very
strange combination I must say shall we have a look at another one of the things
that I like eating because yes it is true I do enjoy eating food so over here quite often when I’m eating something I
like to put something on top of the food sometimes I will use this salad cream so
this is called salad cream it is quite tangy you might also say that it is a
little bit salty so inside this you have things like vinegar and also eggs
however there is something else that I like putting on my food mayonnaise I
also like putting mayonnaise on my food so actually quite often I will put salad
cream and mayonnaise on my food at the same time both together so when we talk
about mayonnaise well that is something that is made with eggs so this
particular thing has a lot of eggs salad cream is seen as a healthy alternative
so many people prefer salad cream because they they feel that it is not as
unhealthy as mayonnaise what about you do you like to put mayonnaise on your
food I know I do yes we know you have very bad eating habits I will show you
the words salad cream salad cream we can also call this salad dressing as well so
something you put on salads or something you pour over vegetables or maybe salads
so things like lettuce or tomatoes something to add a little bit of flavor
we will call that dressing you can have salad cream or something
that I really like mayonnaise mayonnaise this particular one is made mainly from
eggs which is why this is often seen as being quite unhealthy it is food that
some people avoid of course there are many different types of food when we
talk about varieties of food we can say sweet sweet food for example chocolate
so an example of sweet food oh there is chocolate you can see here there is a
bar of chocolate so this is sweet food and quite often it is seen as being
unhealthy we also have dairy so when we talk about dairy we talk about things
that are made using milk and there are lots of dairy products there are lots of
things that are available to eat that are classed as dairy I suppose the most
obvious one is milk so milk is literally dairy it comes from cows and it is dairy
it is food that contains milk in fact all this is is milk it is milk another
dairy product oh I absolutely love this food now this is one of the types of
food that is seen as being very unhealthy oh dear
look that a lovely beautiful unopened block
of cheese I absolutely love cheese and this particular cheese is extra mature
it is cheddar which is produced in a place called cheddar and this is very
strong so the flavour of this is actually very strong so when we say
extra mature what we are actually saying is extra strong so this has been left
for a very long time to mature so this particular cheese is very strong just
the way I like it I like my cheese strong of course there
are many different types of cheese cheddar is one of my favorites however
there are many other types of cheese as well I suppose I should mention butter
butter is something that is a dairy product
it contains milk and there it is some lovely butter this is a special kind of
butter because it’s combined with oils as well so vegetable oils so this also
has vegetable oils inside as well so it isn’t as unhealthy as pure butter so
when we talk about dairy products that’s what we talked about
also there are fatty foods fatty so when we describe a certain type of food as
fatty it means it contains a lot of fat so I suppose when we think of fatty food
we often think of dairy so dairy food is
often seen as fatty it contains a lot of fat hmm I wonder what is happening on
the live stream greetings mr. Duncan I am from Iraq I am
pleased to join the listing thank you very much
Patrick says cheddar can be yellow as well and you can make Welsh oh I know
what you’re going to say one of the things you can do with cheese is you can
cut it and you can put it on bread or you can put it on toast and then you can
melt the cheese on top of the bread we call it cheese on toast very nice
Christina says in Italy we have the so called stinky cheese yes that is true it
is a type of food that can have a very strong odor so some cheese can have a
very strong smell and some people find it very unhealthy Cory says cheese is
very fatty I know I agree and I do like eating cheese talking of cheese tonight
can you guess what we are eating tonight so take a look over there take a look at
my selection of food can you guess what we are eating tonight tonight we are having pizza I know I
know what you’re going to say mr. Duncan mr. Duncan you must take care of
yourself I do I do take care of myself but sometimes I just like to have a meal
that I enjoy so tonight mr. Steve and myself we will be enjoying a deep pan
triple cheese pizza tonight so that’s what we’re having I will put it in the
oven it will take about 15 minutes to cook and then we can have it and look
can you see the price it’s it’s only 2 pounds so this whole pizza is only 2
pounds so not only is it quick and convenient it is also quite cheap as
well oh and also quite unhealthy unfortunately I’m sorry about that
however sometimes we do eat healthy food we eat a lot of vegetables at the
weekend we eat fish so we don’t always eat fatty food we don’t always eat
unhealthy food although today we will we will be mr. Steve is a little bit of a
health freak he does like eating food that is healthy for example every
morning Steve always likes to eat porridge
so quite often in the morning Steve will start his day with some porridge
personally I don’t like porridge I think it tastes quite disgusting so I don’t
like porridge however mr. Steve does I normally have this for breakfast so my
day normally starts with this particular product by the way I’m not advertising
this I’m not being paid by anyone it doesn’t look like I have a shop behind
me yes Rakesh Rakesh says Mr Duncan it looks
like you have a big shop it does it looks like I work in a grocer’s shop yes
so there’s my breakfast every morning I have two of these with a little bit of
soya milk so that’s it you see so sometimes I do eat healthy food and of
course this food is organic as well it is made using organic ingredients so
there there are no pesticides there are no chemicals there are no additives so
that’s pretty good sometimes we like to make food sometimes we like to have
spicy food especially on Friday mr. Steve will often make curry and this is
one of the things that we use so you can see here we have some instant curry mix
so this is actually curry sauce and this particular one is Balti so this one is
Indian sauce and it’s called Balti which is a type of Indian dish very delicious
especially with chicken or sometimes with fish so normally when we make our
own careers we normally put fish in the curry instead of meat and as you know I
love Italian food I like Italian food and mr. Steve will often make pasta so
we use this particular source so this is sauce that you can buy and
then you pour it into the saucepan and then you can add all of your own
ingredients and make yourself a nice Italian meal it’s nice to hear that Ana
Rita likes sushi can I tell you something I have only tried sushi once
and I didn’t like it very much I’ll be honest with you I prefer my fish cooked
to be honest I’m not very keen on raw food especially fish it’s almost time to
go I can’t believe it I can’t believe that time has almost
beaten us today another type of food of course this is
the thing I mentioned earlier healthy so there are many types of healthy food
that you can eat so when we think about healthy food we often think about
vegetables maybe certain types of food that have very little fat because of
course fat is one of the big dangers as you get older if you have a lot of fat
in your diet it can cause all sorts of problems as you get older and as I
mentioned earlier a lot of people nowadays like to eat organic food so
they will eat food that has been grown naturally without any artificial
chemicals or additives or during the farming process when the food is being
grown there are no pesticides it hasn’t been genetically modified so
something like that I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s very interesting lesson
and the other thing I didn’t mention is today around the world
is World Food Day isn’t that strange so today is actually World Food Day so I
don’t know how I did that but it is a coincidence so today I’m in
the kitchen and I’m talking to you on World Food Day and as you can see behind
me there is a lot of different types of food behind me in a moment or maybe this
afternoon I will have a cup of tea with mr. Steve and this is the tea that I
like to drink I like to drink some some Earl Grey one of my favorite flavors of
tea is Earl Grey and in the morning I will always have a cup of tea and in the
evening I will always have a cup of tea with mr. Steve however at the moment I
think I am going to have a cup of coffee so as soon as I finished this livestream
I am actually going to make a cup of coffee in the morning you can have an
egg omelette for breakfast yes netra Thank You Netra that’s a good suggestion
I do have some eggs in my refrigerator but I didn’t get them out so yes eggs
another thing that I like eating with Steve sometimes we will have an egg with
some toast or of course you can make an omelet Steve likes omelets I’m not very
keen on omelets to be honest I’m not very keen on them
however omelets are something that you can make quickly and you can put all
sorts of things inside them and they are very tasty Lewis says I am not very good
at cooking at all fortunately my wife is very great in the kitchen well all I can
say Louis is you are very lucky very lucky fortunately for me mr. Steve
is quite good in the kitchen I I’m not so good we are coming up to three
o’clock it’s almost time to say goodbye I can’t believe how fast this hour has
gone by can you believe it I can’t believe it
I’m sure you can’t believe it I can’t believe it
none of us can believe it it’s unreal I will show you very quickly some ice
cream because this is one of my all-time favorite foods besides chocolate I also
like eating ice cream again it is another dairy food so ice cream is made
using milk so that is also dairy it is a type of dairy food ice cream oh my
goodness so in a moment I am going to have a cup of coffee as soon as I finish
of course I haven’t mentioned fruit now Steve is a big fan of fruit can you see
here what I have in my hand there is a banana this is the last banana just to
show you how how little food we have left we we almost have no food left in
the house we only have this this is all food we have left so I think this
afternoon I should order some more food from the supermarket so this is the sort
of thing mr. Steve likes to eat mr. Steve likes his bananas it looks as if
this banana is about to go bad so this one is very ripe I think that’s almost
it I will say a quick hello to some of the people on the live chat hello Pat
you dairy food so when we talk about dairy food it’s things that contain a
lot of milk of course another thing that is not good
for you it is the food that I do like a lot sugar I do like sugar so sugar is
something that is consumed by many people in many different types of food
sometimes there is sugar in food even if you don’t realize that there is sugar
inside it so maybe you buy some health food such as yogurt and it has been
proven that some health food actually contains a lot of sugar so I think sugar
is something that many people are addicted to perhaps I am I’m not sure
maybe I’m addicted to sugar do you think so
am i a sugar addict maybe maybe not what about you do you like sugar do you like
eating sugar Thank You mr. Duncan for this lesson you are welcome one last
thing I want to show you this is something that is very popular in the UK
when whenever you have food like fish and chips something that you can cover
with tomato ketchup there it is tomato ketchup and you can see here this
particular tomato ketchup is organic isn’t that nice
so tomato ketchup or quite often we will call it tomato sauce is something you
pour over your food to give it flavor but did you know that tomato ketchup
weather was originally invented during a period of time when people couldn’t
preserve their food they couldn’t keep it fresh so to hide the bad taste of the
rotten food that they had to eat they would
pour tomato sauce over the food so that is how tomato ketchup was invented it
was invented to hide the terrible taste of the food that was starting to go bad
but nowadays we put it on everything so that’s it it’s almost time to go I am
going to have a cup of coffee thank you very much for your company
I hope you’ve enjoyed today four spoons of sugar in your coffee mr. Duncan
you’re crazy no not anymore so normally when I have a
cup of coffee I normally put two two spoons of coffee and that’s it so I
don’t eat as much sugar as I used to I used to eat a lot of sugar but I don’t
eat as much as I used to and as you can see I am I’m looking quite well these

    Earl Gray is my favourite type of tea as well. There is an English brand called Twinnings, if I'm not mistaken, and they used to sold it in a beauty tin can.
