    keep the food on the plates

    What would you say, if you wanted your mother to keep the food on the plates?


    I would say, please keep/put the food on plates and give me.


    Please help me.

    Thank you Ronbee.
    Is there any other sentences you use while you want someone to serve you food?

    Please let me know all the very kind of sayings.

    Well, I don't know everything, but how about:
    I'm hungry.
    What's for dinner?

    Re: keep the food on the plates

    Is the meal ready? Shall I sit down?

    Can I fetch the food and put it on the table?

    If you put the food into the plates, I'll pass them round.


    Your original is a bit aggressive - my mother would be very cross if we spoke that way to her!
