Episode 3 – Eating Breakfast
I walk into my kitchen and turn on the coffeemaker（the coffee filter, and the coffee pot，throw out the coffee grounds）.
I always put the coffee, filter, and water in the night before so it’s ready to go.
Next, I open the door of the cupboard（[‘kʌbɚd]） where the cereal is stored.
I would love to have ham and eggs for breakfast every morning（a very heavy breakfast meaning there’s lots of fat and there’s lots of food）, or maybe a stack of waffles（batter ->waffle iron or flat pan ->waffle or pancake）,（the best syrup comes from maple leaf trees called maple syrup;If you go to arestaurant and you order breakfast and you want pancakes, sometimes they will ask you if want a “short stack,” meaning just one or two, or you might have a regular stack, which could be four or five. ） but the truth is that I just don’t have the time to cook.
So, I pour myself a bowl of cereal and put in a glass of skim milk（ you have whole milk, which has the most fat; you have two percent milk, which has somewhat less fat; you can have one percent, which is even less fat; or you can have fat free, or skim, milk, which has little or no fat at all. ）, making sure I take a spoon out of the silverware （ the knife, the fork, and the spoon together；Other people in a restaurant may call them utensils.）tray（tray is a place where you put the silverware）.
I go outside and pick up my newspaper, and sit down at the kitchen table. I love reading the paper in the morning, though usually I just have time to read a few of the stories.
When I’ve finished my cereal, I grab（take something, usually with your hand） a banana and maybe make a slice（slice is a piece of toast） of toast（the toaster heats up the bread until the bread is brown on the outside.） with jam（We would say we spread the jam on the toast. ）.
I rinse off （ clean something with water）my breakfast dishes in the sink and put them in the dishwasher（“Oh, do you have a dishwasher,” and you say, “Yes, I am the dishwasher.”）.
By that time, my coffee is ready so I pour （cereal isn’t liquid, but it is something that you can put into another container, in this case, into a bowl, and it comes out of the bigger container and into the smaller container. ）myself a cup（So,we use that verb usually when we talk about liquid things like water or milk, but you can also use it when we talk about cereal.） and put the rest in a Thermos for work.
