Years ago, one of my sister's friends from Spain came to the states for a visit. After a day of eavesdropping on conversations at the Jersey shore to improve her English, she made a startling discovery. All Americans talk about is what they ate for their last meal, what they are presently eating, and what they plan on eating for their next meal.
Man, I had the best ham sandwich for lunch today. It had a ton of mustard and pickles. Man, that was good.
I could kill for a chocolate ice-cream cone right now. Wouldn't you? Where's that ice-cream truck?
We should make a nice pasta salad for dinner today. A little cheese. A little onion. It'll be great.
