Imagine you are standing in your kitchen planning to make lunch for your partner. Find out

Ask about general categories of food first, then decide exactly what you will prepare, e.g. a
ham and egg sandwich on brown bread with mustard and mayonnaise.

Do the same, but this time pretending that you have little food in your kitchen. After you 
have decided what you will cook, tell your partner what they need to go and buy at the 
local supermarket so that you can prepare it, including how much/ how many of those 
things you need.
