  篇一

  思绪在像橙汁一样蔓延

  At a local supermarket, two women push half-filled grocery carts. The ladies are good friends, but they couldn't be more different. One is a stay-at-home housewife who loves to create
culinary masterpieces from scratch. The other is a training supervisor at a prestigious advertising agency. Household chores, particularly those in the kitchen, are not her idea of fun. The two
ladies stop for a moment in the frozen foods section. "I'm so tired," sighs the professional woman. "I don't know what to do about supper." Her friend suggests, "What about a microwave dinner?"
The weary professional sighs, "No, I don't feel like cooking tonight."


  在一间本地的超市里,两位女士推着半满的购物车。这两位女士是好朋友,但两人之间的差异是大得不能再大了。一位是持家的主妇,她喜欢大展厨艺,从全生的作料,一步一步创造佳肴杰作。另一位是在一家颇具声望的广告公司任职人事训练主管。家务琐事,特别是厨房事,并非她乐趣所在。二位女士在冷冻食物区前停了一会儿。职业妇女叹道:「我好累,我不知晚餐要作什么好。」她的朋友建议说:「何不来一顿微波炉晚餐。」这位疲惫的职业妇女又叹道:「不,我今晚不想作饭。」

  If you think American cooking means opening a package and tossing the contents into the microwave, think again. On the one hand, it's true that Americans thrive on cold cereal for breakfast,
sandwiches for lunch and instant dinners. From busy homemakers to professional people, many Americans enjoy the convenience of prepackaged meals that can be ready to serve in 10 minutes or
less. On the other hand, many Americans recognize the value of cooking skills. Parents-especially mothers-see the importance of training their children-especially daughters-in the culinary

arts. Most Americans will admit that there's nothing better than a good home-cooked meal. But with cooking, as with any other skill, good results don't happen by accident.

  假如您以为美式烹饪就是打开一个料理盒而将里头的东西拋进微波炉加热,那你得改变想法了。从某一方面来说,美国人以早餐的冷麦片,午餐的三明治及快餐晚餐而发育健壮,这倒是真的。从忙碌的家庭主妇到上班族,许多美国人喜欢享受事先包装好的便餐所带来的方便,这些速餐在不到10分钟内就可上桌。从另一个角度来看,许多美国人都认同厨艺的价值。父母亲--特别是妈妈看到训练孩子,尤其是女儿,烹饪艺术的重要性。大多数的美国人都承认没有什么比得上一顿自家做的餐点。而谈到烹饪,一如其它的技巧,好的成果并非偶然天成的
