Doesn’t this picture just remind you of Sunday Suppers at Nonna’s?? Homemade pasta was on our menu today. What was your favorite recipe Nonna used to make back in the day? • • • • • • •• •

Hi guys! Today's Word of the Day is a total divergence from anything we've covered before -- 鳄梨 è lí - avocado!

That's right, we might just be exploring some foods over the next few days, starting with the beautiful avocado. Incidentally, 鳄 è means "alligator," and 梨 lí means "pear," making the bumpy-skinned Persea americana an "alligator pear" in popular usage 🙃

Oh -- speaking of food -- did we mention that we'll be having a meeting this Wednesday at 4:30? We'll be making fried rice -- you should probably grab those ingredients before they are sold out from all the stores due to popular demand for participation in this meeting! 😂 Recipe can be found on our GroupMe -- message here, email Ms. Stumpf, talk to a friend... the possibilities are endless for you to get the word! 😁
