RECIPE vs. RECEIPT: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a nice weekend.

Today we look at more vocabulary that came up during Ziggurat's last CommunicACTION Weekend in Viladrau.

Today's words are: Recipe and Receipt

Meaning of Recipe (Rés-a-pi): instructions that tell you how to cook something and the ingredients that you need for it.

Meaning of Receipt (Re-sít): a piece of paper that shows that goods or services have been paid for.

Example 1:
She has an excellent recipe for lasagne, but she won't share it with anyone. She says it's a secret.

Example 2:
Cashier: That will be five Euros please.
Customer: Here you are. Can I have a receipt please?
Cashier: No it is.
Customer: Thank you. 

You may also want to consult the Daily Vitamin sent on October 22, 2007; it dealt with the difference between recipe (receta de cocina) and prescription (receta médica).

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.

I'll see you tomorrow.
