Boring Rice

Just a quick blog entry so that I don’t forget to write down something funny that happened the other day…

At home, I was served a dish which was very close to risotto, one of my favorite dishes of all time. I commented on it to Gladys, but she said, “No, it is just chicken and rice.” I then explained that in the US (and Italy, where it comes from) we use a kind of rice called aborrio rice (arroz aborrio) to make risotto. She chuckled and said, “You use boring rice?” (¿Usan arroz aburrido?)

And thus, I understood my first Spanish pun.
