Hello Anne and Readers!
Today I’ll talk about what we eat in Argentina.
Actually there are few dishes that we can consider as typical Argentinean food. The fact is that lots of immigrants came from different European and Asian countries, especially from Italy and Spain, and they brought their culture along with their dishes.
As a consequence, we have a large number of international restaurants (here I’m answering your question, Anne). Oscar and I are keen on French and Italian ones.
The typical Argentinean dishes are “empanadas” (there isn’t any translation to this word but I can say that it’s a kind of pie with a half moon shape and you can fill it with whatever),
“locro” (it’s a stew containing meat, beans and vegetables and it’s a typical dish for people who live in the north provinces), “asado” (a special barbecue), and “choripan” (highly-seasoned pork sausage sandwich; it is cooked along with the asado). We eat milanesas (breaded meat) but I think that it was the Italian who first introduced it here.
I also have to mention “DULCE DE LECHE”; it’s a caramel spread made by boiling down milk and sugar. Do you know that it was discovered by accident? Apparently, a maid was boiling milk with sugar to an important national hero and forgot to turn off the cooker. Then, the final result was a brown cream. Dulce de leche is one of my addictions; the other is eating dark chocolates, Anne. Thank God I don’t put on weight.
Changing the subject I want to tell you that luckily there isn’t any smoke in Buenos Aires now. It is a miracle because it didn’t rain but fortunately the wind direction changed a bit.
Anne, thank you for all the support you are giving me. Do you know that you read my mind?
I was about to ask you to change the type of correction because it took me a long time to find my own mistakes. I see that this new method is better for me. Thank you!
Here is the exercise
We have to wait until Wednesday because the wind direction will change and it is expected to rain. The smoke contains high levels of carbon monoxide which causes sore eyes and a sore throat. It’s very unpleasant to breathe. We have to close all the windows and doors and stay inside. However, smoke can be smelled inside the house because it’s difficult to prevent it from filtering in. For a claustrophobic and allergic person as me, this situation is terrible.
I like this version better :- )
What a lovely job you have Anne. The preparation of the movie material sounds interesting. Watching videos and movies are a fantastic way to learn. Every time I watch one in English I try not to read the subtitles. By the way, the other day Oscar and I went to see “Death in a funeral”. It’s an English comedy. We enjoyed it very much. Oscar loves English sense of humour. I highly recommend it to all of you.
Bernadete, Brazilian coffee is delicious. I went to Brazil many times and love your country immensely.
Thank MerŤ for thinking of me. Thank God I’m fine now.
Jasmine, hope your dream becomes true soon.
Well my dear ones I’ll quit for now.
PS: For all of you that don’t know what xxx means, x is one kiss, xx are 2 kisses, xxx are 3 kisses. “o” means a hug.
