TRANSLATION
- Is working on Sunday finished ?
- In January, it’s finished.
- I made you a No-gluten meal.
- How nice of you !
- A cucumber salad. A lamb stew with carots with rice or mash potatoes.
- And for dessert ?

Préparer : to prepare.
Concombre (masc.) : cucumber.
Ragoût (masc.) : stew.
Mouton (masc.) : lamb.
Carotte (fém.) : carott.
Riz (masc.) : rice.
Purée (fém.) : mash potato.
Kiwi (masc.) : kiwi.
Ananas (masc.) : Ananas.
Promenade (fém.) : walk.
In English, if you want to precise what sort of salade you’re speaking of, you put the noun that gives some precisions before the main noun :
a cucumber salad, a fruit salad.

In French, we can’t do that.
To complete a noun with some precisions, we often use an other noun or a verb but we relate them to the main noun with a preposition (most of the time à, de ou en). That’s why we say :
salade de concombre, salade de fruits.

In this lesson, we have a few examples :
Un repas sans gluten
Un ragoût de mouton aux carottes
Translate in French :
1. A cucumber salad.
2. Working on Sunday is finished.
3. I made you a fruit salad with ananas, kiwis and bananas.

Translate in English :
1. Je ne travaille plus le dimanche.
2. Un ragoût de mouton aux champignons.
3. Et si on faisait du shopping cet après-midi ?

Champignon (masc.) : mushroom.
Shopping (masc.) : shopping.
