squares是餐或頓的意思。前面一定要連用一個quantifier,例如每頓、一頓、兩頓、三餐。

    很有意思, 所以查了一下字典, 發現 square 當名詞用時有一個特別的美式俚義 抄錄如下

    square n.

    a good and nutritious meal. (Always with quantifier when square is used without meal.) : I need three squares a day—at least. , The old soak looks like he could use a square meal.應該就是三餐或三頓了

    三餐 或 三頓的營養午餐

    In British English 'a square' doesn't mean the same as 'a square meal'.

    three squares a day .

    每日三正餐(美國用法)

    three squares a day .

    (可能是)每日三塊巧克力或果凍(英國用法)

    為了避免誤會﹐建議使用﹕

    three square meals a day.

    你的例句中不會誤導

    因為有前文呼應

    單獨使用時要小心了。
