“Now, kids, simmer down. Don’t make so much noise.” 「ほら、もうちょっと静かにしましょう。」


“Simmer” is a cooking word. It means cooking something at a low boil. The water will boil off and evaporate over time. But we use “simmer down” to mean “become calm”. It’s useful when telling children to be a little quieter.
