Los ñoquis, un plato para comer el 29 de cada mes. // “Ñoquis, a plate you eat on the 29th of each month.

Queremos empezar con una nota sobre un plato sabroso “los ñoquis” (albóndigas italianos de harina y papa). El 29 de cada mes en Uruguay es el día de los ñoquis y los restaurantes y tiendas de pasta fresca promocionan los ñoquis a lo grande. El 29 del mes, justo antes del día del pago , las cosas estaban un poco apretadas y los ñoquis era una de las cosas más baratas que podía hacer para comer. Así que el 29 se convirtió en el día del ñoqui y hasta el día de hoy se considera buena suerte comer ñoqui este día con una moneda debajo del plato, lo que supuestamente garantiza un mes prospero. // We want to start with a note on one tasty dish, los ñoquis, or gnocchi (Italian flour and potato dumplings). 29th of every month in Uruguay is ñoqui day, and you’ll spot restaurants and fresh pasta shops promoting the ñoquis big time. It’s a tradition that results from the last day of the month being pay-day. On the 29th of the month, just before pay-day, things were a bit tight and these pasta-like dumplings make from ground potato and flour were just about the cheapest thing you could make to eat. So the 29th became ñoqui day, and to this day it’s considered good luck to eat ñoqui on the 29th with a coin under your plate – this supposedly guarantees a prosperous month!

Un puesto de verduras en la feria del barrio. // A vegetable stand at the neighborhood fair.

una cazuela = casserole, normally either de lentejas (lentils) or de mondongo (tripe)

un guiso = stew

los tallarines = spaghetti

el matambre = meat roll (beef rolled with condiments, vegetables, ham, and egg, then sliced on meat. It is available either hot or cold as a lunch)

matambre a la leche = meat roll cooked in milk

la milanesa = a fillet of beef fried in breadcrumbs (or milanesa de pollo is the same but with chicken)

“vamos a comer un asado” = “let’s have a barbeque. Different types of meat will be roasted on “una parilla” = a barbeque.

la milanesa napolitana = milanesa with tomato sauce, ham and cheese on top

una hamburguesa = hamburger, available al pan (on bread) or al plato (straight on the plate).

los mariscos = seafood

una tortilla (española) = Spanish omelette

Coming up next… Class 23: El Mate
