Green eggs and ham, please, Sam.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NohTaebin

Groene eieren met ham? Ik wil ze niet hier. Ik wil ze niet daar. Ik lust ze niet. Neem jij ze maar!

Which word is more common for lunch, lunch or middageten?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rhynn

That completely depends on which region of the Netherlands you're in!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaulineStinson

lunch is certainly gaining ground in the competition!

Why is the lunch green?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Melarish

Or salad. So much salad. Tons of salad.

It was probably locally sourced, which reduced the greenhouse gasses emitted.

It's too old and it's gone mouldy!

"I do not like green eggs and ham." ;-)

The translation of these words are probably going to be the easiest to remember now. XD

Why is it "groene" and not "groen" as it is "HET middageten" ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/markclemmo

You should eat your greans

I'm Dutch, I could not hear what she said.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sasha491550

Terrible pronunciation


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CJ.Dennis

The Soylent Green lunch!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SelmaPatty

Does 'green' mean 'natural' or 'organic' in Dutch - like it can in the US?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iris_knol

Wat een gebrekkig nederlands!! Dit is geen nederlands


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Elizabeth261736

Is this literal or metaphorical?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaulineStinson

It's just plain nonsense.. If it were green in the sense of organic, it would be "Het biologische middageten"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nierls

Well, the food could actually be green ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Virmyth

Sounds like a vegetariƫr middageten


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nierls

Vegetarisch* a vegetarian = een vegetariƫr, the vegetarian meal = de vegetarische maaltijd.

Its a very confusing sentence
