  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 246. Today, the lesson is the difference between leftovers and

  • scraps. Yes. Sometimes students will ask what's the difference between these two. All right. let's take a look at the note here. Scraps or table scraps are

  • usually small amounts of food that are usually too small to save for later.

  • Scraps are typically half-eaten or mostly eaten amounts of food from someone's

  • personal plate. So usually when you say scraps, somebody had it on their plate already,

  • and they were eating and maybe you know not everybody finishes everything. They

  • leave little pieces of food on the plate. This is what we typically refer to as

  • scraps. All right. Let's go on.

  • Leftovers are amounts of food remaining. after a meal , especially food that has not been on someone's personal plate. And are usually well worth saving and wrapped up , or put in Tupperware to be eaten at a later time. Of

  • course, there could be some exceptions. You know, maybe somebody put out a lot of

  • food on a plate for someone and then they suddenly didn't feel well. They felt

  • kind of sick, and they hardly touched anything. And they had a real lot of food

  • on that plate. We might still consider that to be kind of like leftovers and

  • wrapped up too. But generally we think of scraps as smaller amounts. Amounts that

  • somebody was actually eating and putting in their mouth with their fork and stuff

  • that's actually left on the plate is usually what we refer to as scraps. So

  • it's usually smaller amounts. Leftovers they could be a lot of leftovers. All

  • right. Let's, let's continue. Let's look at some examples. Some examples kind

  • of clarify it a little bit more . Let's look at number one. Give the scraps to the dog. Yeah I've seen this

  • even in the movies and I've had dogs in my family throughout my life. Sometimes, you know, the dog's bowl. A lot of dogs are willing to eat the scraps you know, you just push it right

  • off the plate into their bowl and you know. if it's the right or proper sort of

  • food. They will, they will eat it. So that's typical. We

  • never say put the leftovers give the leftovers to the dog, we usually say give

  • the scraps to the dog. Or number two . Clean the scraps off the plates before putting

  • them in the dishwasher. So if you've owned a dishwasher before. you know, if

  • there's still like little amounts food on the plate, you know, you have to wipe

  • them off. That'll make the dishwasher a total mess. If you don't clean those off.

  • So usually again. Those are just you know you, take a fork or a knife and you

  • just again push them off the plate. Usually directly into the garbage bin.

  • Because they're usually not worth saving you know, like I said, It's probably like

  • half-eaten stuff that's been in someone's mouth before. So that's usually what we mean by

  • scraps. Okay. Let's look at the third example. I wrapped up the leftovers and put them in the refrigerator. You

  • can have them tomorrow for lunch. Yeah again, especially if you had like food in

  • the center of the table. Maybe people picked from it. You know, to

  • put on their plate. But they didn't usually directly from that bowl or like I said

  • if it was actually on someone's plate if you know that they left a lot of

  • leftovers or they left a lot of food on the plate, we still might call that

  • leftovers. So it's usually scraps when it's becomes small amounts. All right. Let's look at number four. Usually

  • after a large Thanksgiving meal, there are plenty of leftovers

  • that can be eaten for several days. Yeah, especially a Thanksgiving Day meal or a

  • Christmas Day meal. Usually we, most families overcook and they not only do

  • they have turkey, but they have a lot of other variety of different types of food in

  • bowls that you could choose from. And there's always a lot usually left over,

  • that even and everybody is still full and there's still plenty left over. Usually

  • they could be wrapped up, and you know, they might be eaten for the rest of the week.

  • There's usually so much food that's a typical example of leftovers. Okay.

  • Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope this has clarified the difference. How we use the difference

  • between these two more. Anyway thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
