Hello,
Suppose that I am a mother and talking to my girl on the phone telling her what to do at home.

1. After you cooked the porridge when you want to have it, pour it into a bowl and then eat it.
2. After cooking the porridge, take it to a bowl and then eat it.

I have some problems with the word orders. Would you please help me on them?
They are self made. Are they correct? What's the correct way to say it?

Thank you

    Neither one of those sentences looks quite right to me, sb70012.

    Here's how I would say it: After you cook the porridge, ladle it into a bowl and eat it.

    If you change the middle part of 2 to "pour it into a bowl", 2 isn't bad.

    That seems to me to be a very strange circumstance, sb. Your daughter seems to need a lot of instruction.
