Fun Food Vocabulary
Slop either means "low quality food" or, sometimes (and this was the case on my grandmother's farm) it is used to describe leftover food that is fed to animals.
Goodies is often used to mean something good and sweet. A chocolate Easter bunny would be a "goodie" to most of us.
Chow describes food in an informal way. We use the word as a verb also as in "The hungry sailor chowed down on his dinner after a long watch."
Board is normally used in the term "room and board," which means that the rent you pay includes meals.
