vuoi (vuole?) parlare italianese(1000 Posts)
it's an effort if you're not in the mood isn't it? Plus I happily eat the cheapest dry pasta and never buy the posh stuff unless want a special shape or need fresh then I think it's cheaper to make it (when eggs are free). Machine is broken though so last time had to use a wine bottle!
Don't know about spicy fillings, last time roasted butternut squash but peeling and chopping that is worse than making pasta (sono troppo pigra) was thinking of making some red pesto with extra chili flakes and maybe chicken? Dunno, not really feeling it yet! Any ideas? What are you having for Christmas?
Yeah, spaghetti or linguine isn't too bad but it seems so much time! I really need to have help to make enough. How do you manage eggs for free, have you chickens?
Non so, spero che vui aviavu una ricetta!
For Christmas we are having
pepperoni, salami, boccicio,
tuna with beans
potatoes, veg etc
Then cassata, cannoli, cuccidato, torrone, gelato, coffee, tea, Quality Street, someone will probably break out the whisky, and then we will explode!
Actually, I think I'll make lasagne and meatballs as well.
All that? Pazzesco! Davvero? can I come too! I'll help, I'm good at pasta will you make absolutely everything, even the cassata and the cannoli?
used to have chickens but a fox got them my daughter has loads but none laying at the moment, I suppose I could BUY some eggs
where is everyone else? I have been looking after that little boy a lot lately, forgot to do my Italian homework (answering questions on an essay about FOOD) will never catch up
Non so iddi eccita pi Santa Claus? E beddu quannu sunnu bambini, properly magical!
Povero chickens. I imagine that you live on a farm, with so many animals
Si, perque semu <counts on fingers and toes> na 25? Mi penso ch'ancora mi frati veni, alora 30? Iu, mamma, mi sori e suocera cocinu tutti. Miei figghia aiuta. DD2 e una pasticeria, mamme e idda faranu cassata e cannoli. Chistu anni volia agustari fari torrone. DD1 nun avi nienti interest, niente, (si, certo, manciari, idda comu to papa, nun so chi'iu fa aviri na figghia l'comu) ma almeno quello che si diconu. Of course you can help, I warn you now my mother is brutal Flying cucciarelli and dishcloths on the back of your legs if you don't behave!!!
Alora, sentu male, DD n'e pigra, just not interested in cooking. Idda e molto molto intelligenti, e fa molto travagghaia. Studia aeronautical engineering, can you believe that? I can't! Vaiu lei dari una vasuneddu, mi figghina brava.
oh wow, is she in the RAF or a normal civilian sort of student? I didn't think you said she was lazy anyway! More interested in eating food than preparing it, that's all I read. If I did my homework and showed up at Italian circle more often I might understand more anyway you must be very proud of her, when does she graduate? Will she be a pilot?
sto di merda a bit today, it's so dark and cold and rainy all the time, I'm daydreaming about corsica for August (13yo wants to go to France, a good compromise?) and will just swim across to sardegna for provolone now and then
Oh no, just a student! Colpa mia, parru Sicilianu/ Glaswegian/ Italianu, I am surprised that anyone understands me She has 2 years left. Spero nun si un pilot, idda mania come una maniac (scuuussaa, terrible pun!), la sangu sicilliana mi penso, ajeri she reversed the full length along our street, mamma mia, I nearly strangled her. (but sooooo proud. I can't believe it!)
Corsica, che beddu! August is so far away though. Accudu, il invernu sembra never ending!
haha, couldn't she bothered to turn round? Sorry but the driving is one of my favourite things!
I know you are not Francesco's biggest fan but ever since he called me a beautiful spiteful monkey I have been enjoying our email romance eg: "ti aspetto penso spesso alla tua bocca"
Che puisia you are still emailing? That's good!
Iddu nun pensava a vutava, avia ritunari alora idda ritunava! I have a love hate relationship with the driving, it's so fun ancora aviti maniati docu?
Stasira Celtic play Lisbon. If they win, they get last 16... I have a full house again! All very nervous!
Ooh good luck Celtic again
Puisia = poesia? I agree, he is no Lentini!
Grazzi, 'lannu bisognu, 2-1... uh oh. Siamo nei guai!
Lentini AC Milan?
you just Made me choke on a cupcake
Lentini Lentini Lentini, he invented the sonnet, I paid my respects to him on the way from Siracusa to Catania
sorry about Celtic, is it all over? I want to do a sad face but I am still laughing!
Nun rideri, sugnu la cidrulina di familia
Eeh, alora, 2-1, cosi... ma they still have one game to play.
cidrulina? Credo di no! (although non so questa parola, penso you are not being nice to yourself?!)
sorry, poor Celtic, who's next?
Cidrule- cucumber/ stupid Mi papa mi chiamava 'cidrulina' affectionately, non molto portatu allo studio, anzi, my grades were truly terrible. Mi frati ancora mi preso in giro perque eranu puzzi.
I have other talents
Moscow, but at home, so they will have the crowd
Aaaaah cidrule = cetriolo, you are good at teaching me things anyway!
I'm sorry I laughed, maybe Lentini is not very famous, I studied him a bit (and Petrarch who usually gets all the credit) at university otherwise I'm sure I wouldn't have heard of him either?
I blame all these poets for my obsession with Italy, you bump into their ghosts everywhere you go
ugh, oggi sono giù again ma ciao, spero che stai bene etc
Ach it's fine to laugh! I have not heard of him either, oh dear. Did you study English at university?
ah lovely lovely flowers, thank you! I just picked a rose from the garden, mad, really strange time of year for it? Especially when it's so dark? This is supposed to be one of the sunniest bits in the British isles but you'd never know!
It could be worse, I could be Icelandic or something but in happier news made plans with one of the catania bloggers to meet and follow st agata around in feb.
A chistu tempu? Che stanu!
Nun piace essiri Icelandic, it is dark and cold enough up here! That will be amazing, that's the one that goes on all night, isn't it?
Avemu bisognu di a new thread
Yes with loads of fireworks, hooray, three days in total I think? I don't know if I want to eat her boob cakes though but will be exciting to get close to her actual relics, if we can. I was a morbid child and loved that sort of thing and still do, a bit
Cosa fai oggi? Stasera e una cena enormous-a, mia figlia ha preparata most of it, phew.
Ciao! Oh no, they are lovely, you have to try them (the cakes, not the relics).
Che c'e per cena? Una figlia brava, cocinare pi so mamma! Spero piacce a to.
Oggi, tutti mi bambini ci raffreddore, poveri! Ds1 dissi, di fatto, influenzata e, iddu ammalatto e, no, dyyinggg. He is sitting on the couch in his pyjamas (with trains on them) sniffing and feeling sorry for himself. Ci fici pasteen, poveretto. E avutri, durmianu zinu pranzo, e sunnu molto pallidu.
Mille! Mamma mia!
