apply heat to some food ... like if you just make a sandwich that that's prepare.
That's not cook. Now cook up what's the difference between cook up and cook ? It is
usually cook up means you you're going to try to do it fast or or not take too
long. So let's take a look at the the note here. This is the first ... the
first meaning. If someone cooks up some food, he prepares it by cooking or you

you got to cook something up. Number two. To fabricate or completely make

alibi So that suspect cooked up an alibi. So he
can pretend he was innocent. I don't know maybe had a friend or a
girlfriend and maybe he asked the girlfriend to vouch for him. To say you
know, he was with her at the time of the crime, so that he can have an alibi,
something like that. And number four here. What kind of excuse
