hello all, I have got my self in a such a doubt!
A stuck up teacher said to me that the sentence:
I eat rice with beans;
is not correct, well as far as i was concerned it is correct, as the webster says that u use WITH, talking about food to indicate accompaniment; here is what webster says:
[used as a function word to indicate combination, accompaniment, presence, or addition <heat milk with honey>];
is it correct or not? if not why?
Did you ask your teacher why?
Maybe it is the verb.
I eat rice with beans is present (going on now)
I ate rice with beans is past (done in the past)
I eat rice and beans is OK.
Some people say I eat peanut butter with jelly Or I eat peanut butter and jelly.
Ice cream with cake or ice cream and cake.
