    Question

    Would you please tell me the meaning of underlined parts:

    Wayne: What are we going to eat for dinner?
    Lilia: Im going to fix some pork chops.

    Waiter: How do you want your eggs?
    Kate: What are my choices?
    Waiter: Scrambled, sunny side-up, over-easy, and over-hard.


    Connies going to get a face lift.

    I would suggest you get a facial every four to six weeks for a deep cleaning

    Pork chops = small cutlets of meat taken from a pig. http://tinyurl.com/mpc5a

    Waiter: Scrambled, sunny side-up, over-easy, and over-hard.
    Sunny-side up: The white is cooked only on one side. The yolk is still runny.

    Over easy: The egg white is turned over once and cooked on both sides and a thin skin is cooked over the yolk.


    Over hard: Similar to over easy, but cooked longer. The yolk is completely cooked and is not runny, but flaky.


    Scrambled eggs: Beaten eggs mixed with half and half or milk and cooked the whole way through.

    A face lift is a surgical procedure to "tighten up" the skin on the face. It gets rids of wrinkles and is supposed to make the person look youthful again.

    A facial is often done in a salon; it is a professional cleansing of the skin on the face, using specialized soaps and moisturizers and other products. The face is often exposed to heat or steam so that the pores open up, and then they can be "deep cleaned" with a product designed for that purpose.

    I probably should've clarified in my original answer, sorry. It's a mixture of 50 percent heavy cream and 50 percent milk.
    According to this site: http://www.gumbopages.com/food/half.html,
    y'all would combine whole milk with "single cream" on your side of the pond.
