A friend of mine in Mexico invited my roommate, LaPorte, and I to an event. I am unable to attend, but my roommate is. In my response, expressing how I wish I could come, I want to say something similar to this English phrase:
I'm jealous that LaPorte gets to eat some of your amazing food!
My first thought was to write:
Estoy celoso que LaPorte va a disfrutar la comida rica que siempre cocinan
But then I felt like celoso might be too strong of a word in this context so I thought maybe I should write:
Me esta dando envidia que LaPorte va a disfrutar la comida rica que siempre cocinan
Help me better understand how to appropriately express jealousy in Spanish in this context and maybe in others as well.
