Hello Listener friends. Welcome to English World. I am Mark.
And I am Guo Wen-Jie. 欢迎你收听英语世界
We are happy that you've tuned into our program today.
We have talked about food on several programs in the past.
Wen-Jie, What kind of food do you like to eat?
嗯，我喜欢吃什么呢? Well Mark, I know you love pizza.
Of course. Especially the deep dish.
Everyone loves pizza. You do, too.
That's right. 大家都爱吃批蕯，我也喜欢However, pizza is not American food.但 这可不是美国食物
No, it's not. A lot of people think it's Italian food.
Then, what's your favorite American food? 马可爱吃的美国食物到底是什么?
Well, I love a good thick Hamburger.
With all the trimmings of onion, tomato, pickle, all sorts of good things.
Oh…… it's so good to eat.
Ha. I don't know what's so delicious in a hamburger. 汉堡有什么好吃呢? I still prefer to eat Chinese food. 中国菜好吃多了
So, after living so many years in the States, you still have a Chinese appetite.
What's For Dinner? 晚餐吃什么?
"What's For Dinner? " is the most-asked question many husbands ask their wives. 许多丈夫最常问妻子的问题就是，晚餐吃什么呢 ?
Is it going to be Grilled chicken? 是烤鸡肉?
How about Hamburgers & Hotdogs? 汉堡热狗?
Or, Pizza? 批蕯?
How about Tacos? 墨西哥玉米卷?
Maybe Leftovers? 剩饭剩菜?
Or, maybe Restaurant reservations? 还是，要预约餐厅?
Mark, talking about American food, guess what Chinese people think of?
They are probably thinking of places like McDonald's, Burger King?
And Kentucky Fried Chicken. 许多人认为美国食物就是麦当劳、汉堡王、肯达基炸鸡
All restaurants are fast food.
I know. 都是快餐店食品
Well, we do have delicious cuisine.
Like, My wife cooks great Pot Roast, and bakes good Apple Pie, and the list goes on and on.
And what are you cooking?
Well, Chinese Food, or course. 我当然是做中国菜！
Chinese food is very popular here.
You and I have gone to China Buffet few times.
马可曾经几次到'任你吃到饱'的中国餐厅吃过 Do you know what we called the Buffet store ?
I don't know. Tell me.
Buffet 包肥。 Guaranteed to be FAT. 保证会肥
Well, I can see why. Who can resist Chinese food? We all know that producer Josh just can't get enough Chinese food.
Coming up next, Josh is going to tell us his love for the Panda.
Wait! Did you say Panda?
Yes. Not the Panda Bear in the zoo. It's the Chinese food chain called: Panda Express.
I see. 他说的，不是动物园里的熊猫，乃是<熊猫快餐连锁店>
So let's listen to what Josh talks about. Wen-Jie , you will translate for our listeners, right?
Of course. 我先来为你翻译
MMMMMMM YOU SMELL THAT!?
It's the smell of the beautiful orange chicken, the amazing spice of the Kung PAO chicken, and the sauce off the amazing Beijing beef…
It's just so delicious. I just want to shove it in my face right now!
I love going to Panda express and pigging out on all this Chinese food!
我特别爱去Panda Express <熊猫快餐店>，大快朵颐这些好吃的中国菜！
Chinese food hits Joshua's stomach just right….Chicken, rice, egg rolls, sweet and sour sauce….MMMMMM
中国菜很对我德嘉许的胃口！ 鸡肉嫩、米饭香、春卷脆、甜酸酱… MMMMM
When I'm craving the Chinese cuisine, I am craving the Panda Express.
Panda Express. Gourmet Chinese food. Now that's good stuff.
I like Panda Express, too. The food there is good.
马可也爱吃熊猫店的食物Mark, if the name is "Express", that must mean: Chinese fast food.
Chinese Fast Food it is, then!
说来说去，还不过是快餐食品The Chinese immigrants here has changed the style of Chinese food. 移民美国的华人改变了中餐的风格
So, you are saying that it has been adapted to suit local palates?
No matter what they have done to it, Chinese fast food is popular here.
Let's have Josh tell us his Panda Express experience once again.
It's just so delicious. I just want to shove it in my face right now! I love going to Panda express and pigging out on all this Chinese food! Chinese food hits Joshua's stomach just right….Chicken, rice, egg rolls, sweet and sour sauce….MMMMMM
Whether it's American or Chinese food, we choose to eat what we enjoy.
And we know food is essential to live.
We work hard to get good food.
Just like most of the people, we often worry about "What's For Dinner? "
But listen carefully to what Jesus says in the Bible.
Verse For Life 生命经文
Jesus says, 耶稣说，
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; 所以我告诉你们、不要为生命忧虑吃甚么．
or about your body, what you will wear.
Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
Luke 12:23 路加福音
Jesus is reminding us, life is more important.
We are more important than what we eat or wear.
God will provide what we need every day.
So, stop worrying and put your trust in God.
Listener friends, our lesson today is: What's For Dinner?
Huh, I don't know what I'm eating tonight.
But I know I will have something to eat and I'm thankful to God.
Wen-Jie, what's your dinner for tonight?
Well, I'll be cooking Tofu and Dumpling.我今晚要做豆腐料理和锅贴
I'm sure it will be good.
Of course. 保证好吃
We hope your enjoyed your time learning English with us.
And we look forward to hearing from you and seeing you again next time.
Until then, I'm your radio host Mark.
And I am Guo Wen-Jie.
So Long and Happy Eating!
Hey, I have never tried Tofu in my life.
Really? It's soft. It's nutritious. And it's delicious. You should try it.
Hmn….I don't know. Try convincing Josh to try it first. If he likes it, then I'll try it.
All right. It's a deal.
