enough room

I'm lucky to have enough room to have a vegetable garden.

When you have 'enough room' it means that you have plenty of space to be comfortable or to do the things that you want.

Notice the following:

  1. Do you have enough room for a swimming pool in your garden?
  2. I think we have enough room for 8 people to sit around and eat dinner.

all year round

Wow, you grow vegetables all year round!

When something is done 'all year round' it means that it happens at all times during the year. The seasons do not stop it from happening.

Notice the following:

  1. I go running all year round. 
  2. The fairground is open all year round

procedure

How do you make soup? I mean what is your procedure?

A 'procedure' is the method or the way that you do something.

Notice the following:

1. Make sure you follow the correct procedure.
2. When people start a new job it takes a while for them to learn all the different procedures.

stock

I often add a base of some sort, a stock, a veggie stock.

A 'stock' is a liquid used in cooking, it is added during the cooking process to make the meal tastier.  Vegetable stock is made by cooking vegetables, salt and spices in water for a long time.  Many times stocks are made with meat instead of vegetables.

Notice the following:

  1. I prefer to make my own chicken stock, because what they sell at the store is too salty.
  2. The vegetable stock should keep in the fridge for a few days.

organic

I get some organic veggie stock.

When something is organic it means that it has been made or grown without the use of any artificial or unnatural chemicals.

Notice the following:

  1. I only eat organic foods as I think that they are much better for you.
  2. I grow all of my own organic vegetables in the garden.
