Vocabulary - Yummy for Your Tummy!

In this Spanish Medium Review quiz we will look at vocabulary words for things that are yummy for your tummy! Mmm, that sure sounds good and, if you think on it hard, it might even smell good too! Aromas are, after all, a wonderful thing as they can tell you what is cooking long before you even enter into a kitchen. Can you tell if chocolate chip cookies are baking in the oven? How about when a good roast is in the oven? On a cold day, the smell of soup cooking on the stove seems glorious. Yes, food can trigger many feelings and memories.

As you continue to learn Spanish, you can talk about triggering foods in Spanish. You can also have some fun as you practice saying your food vocabulary words. Test it out on the cook (usually Mom) in the house (keeping a straight face naturally). Then again, that person (Mom) could surprise you and know exactly what it is that you are talking about. If she doesn’t, you can sit back and see what it is that she will come up with to give you. Hopefully it will still be yummy for your tummy!
