Anecdoote from Jim

Jim went up to visit his parents, and he told us about this conversation with his Dad.

*Jim cooks pasta with meatsauce for dinner for his parents*
Jim's Dad: What do you call this?
Jim: The pasta is called penne.
Jim's Dad: Penny?
Jim: *Jim thinks that's probably close enough* Yes. Penne with meat sauce.
Jim's Dad: Penny with meat sauce.
Jim: Or if you want to be fancy, penne Bolognese.
Jim's Dad: Penny with mayonnaise? *Jim's Dad looks suspiciously at the food on his plate*
Jim: No, Bolognese. Like the city, Bologna.
Jim's Dad: Oh, the "g" is silent.

*much laughing of Bears*

Jim's Dad is funny. He'd make a good Bear.

OK Bye

Did the Bears know that you don't actually get spaghetti bolognese in Italy? If you get a meat sauce such as bolognese, it is eaten with pasta such as conchiglie or penne, ones which have holes/orifices into which the meat sauce can seep.

If you do see spaghetti bolognese, it's probably only there for the tourists [wink]

Hello Bears! Hello to Jim and his parents too.

Callie bear.
