English term or phrase: Swedish Preperations
Preperations as in what you do to prepare for a vacation or prepare for winter. Preferably with a dual meaning together with preparing a meal. ie. What Sweeds do to prepare a dish is Swedish Preperations. What Sweeds do to prepare for the comming winter is Swedish preperations. Is it possible to get both of these menings in the same dutch word for preperation?

Zweedse (voor)bereidingen
Explanation:
voorbereidingen = preparations (e.g. for winter)
bereidingen = preparations (food)

If you put 'voor' between brackets, it'll cover both meanings.
