Mum: We are going to have Ukrainian borsch with pampushkas and garlic for the first course and cabbage rolls for the main course. For people with a good appetite - pizza, to finish with.

Peter: Well, mom, I don’t feel like eating borsch or cabbage rolls. I’ll start with pizza. I love your chicken pizza so much. It’s the tastiest dish I know and you are so good at baking it.

Mum: You seem to have a passion for fast food, you, flatterer. But be a good boy and have some vegetable salad first. It’ll be a good starter.

Oksana: Remember what our granny keeps on saying: “Soup and salad every day keeps the doctor away”.

Peter: OK, OK, so much pressure.

Mum: Would you mind putting sour cream on your borsch, kids? It tastes better with it!

Oksana: Not for me. And pampushkas are out of the question. I don’t want to put on weight.

Мит: I think you may start your diet tomorrow, honey. Look! The pam pushkas smell so good and they taste so delicious.

Mum: That’s better. Bon appetite, kids!
