Idioms/Expressions, Phrasal Verbs

Good morning, readers. I hope you’re having a great day!

Today we are continuing this week's theme, Cooking Vocabulary. Remember, each day we will look at an expression or word related to cooking or to food. Today we are looking at the phrasal verb TO COBBLE SOMETHING TOGETHER

A cobbler is a person who repairs shoes. But it is also a dessert! A cobbler is a quickly-made dessert with cooked fruit and a bread-like topping. But today we look at the expression TO COBBLE SOMETHING TOGETHER, which isn't the same thing. :-)

Definition: To do or make something quickly and not very carefully.

Example 1: We cobbled together the report without the final documents. 

Example 2: She cobbled the meal together with whatever we had in the refrigerator. 

Notice that this phrasal verb is optionally separable

That's all for today. Thank you for reading and enjoy the rest of your day!
