¿Qué comeremos la semana que viene?

Make up a menu for the school week coming up.  Go by day- lunes hasta viernes, by the three meals you will eat.  Have as much variety as you can for desayunos and almuerzos, and make sure each cena/comida is different.

How much will all this cost?  Make a grocery list in Spanish for your week.  Check the prices at a store- real or virtual- and see how much it costs to eat for a week.  What do you think it will cost?  Write your prediction and see how close you were at the end.

Un menú
Have you ever been to a nice restaurant where the different dishes are described?  How would you describe a spaghetti dish?  Thin noodles covered with a tomato sauce, served with or without meat.  On your own or with a friend, make a menu for a fancy restaurant.  Create a name and location for your restaurante.  Use the vocabulary from this unit, as well as any other words/expressions you may need to look-up, and create five main dishes (platos principales) for your restaurant.  Also include appetizers (apertivos), beverages (bebidas) and desserts (postres).  For each food item provide a description and an approximated price.  Translate prices into an hispanic currency.
