Noi stiamo faccendo una piccola festa per la nostra classe d’italiano.
(We are having a party for our Italian class.)
Ross, Josefina (la professoressa), Dale, Michelle and Max (Wooga had to miss the party due to a school obligation…we missed her)
A lunedi, ho fatto una torta veneziana.
(On Monday I made a Venetian cake)
Prima, ho mischiato un uovo con lo zucchero e la vaniglia.
(First, I mixed an egg with the sugar and the vanilla)
Poi ho aggiunto il burro, la farina e un pizzico di sale.
(Then I added butter, flour and a pinch of salt)
Infine, ho mescolato in le mandorle tritate.
(Finally I mixed in the ground almonds)
Ho messo la pastella nella pentolla.
(I put the batter into the pan)
La torta ha cotto al forno
(the cake baked in the oven)
Sara una bellissima e buonissima torta.
(it will be a beautiful and delicious cake)
La sbriciolona e stata bellissima e buonissima.
The crumbler cake was beautiful and delicious.
So sorry you weren’t there.
We did eat more than cake…we had prosciutto with melon, bruschetta, pizza and of course “la torta”. We also had a nice red vino, limoncello and for those of us who don’t drink…blood orange soda.
We will meet again for our sixth quarter of Italian on April 21.
