You say Manicotti, I say MONAGUT. STOP TALKING AND LET'S FREAKIN EAT ALREADY

Last night at a party, my comah, "Pec," and her husband, Joe over der, were talking about hosting this year's Christmas Party. Pec is a lucky woman whose husband doesn't just cook-- he COOKS. And he's Italian. When she gets home from work, dinner is all ready. I've been wanting to have a dueling "degos" dinner with him but I think I will be roundly trounced. Anyway, I asked what he would be making. He asked what I wanted. I suggested:

gavadeel with madinahd
pruhshoot
scahmutz
monagut with smooth rigut and only lucatel on top
some soprasat
a little brooschet
sasseech
and some canools for dessert.

Since my husband wasn't there, only the 3 of us knew what we were talking about, we being the only Italians. The poor medagons who would also be at the Christmas party looked a litle worried as they did not recognize any of these foods. Which made us laugh even harder than our pronunciations.

Here's the translation:
cavatelli in marinara sauce
prosciutto
Scaramuzza mozarella
manicotti,smooth ricotta with Locatelli cheese (see earlier post)
soprasatta
bruschetta
sausage
cannoli

Pec and Joe over der are New York Italians, transplanted to the boonies as I am from Sofilly. However, it cracks me up to know that butchering words is not limited to Philly Italians. Marone! It was funny!
