Tonight I start my new part-time job as a server at a little Italian restaurant in our neighborhood. Read a review here.
It should be a lot of fun, and of course it will be nice to make some money. I'm thankful to the Lord for providing this job. It's within walking distance, it should pay well, and I should only need to work two nights a week (Friday & Saturday) to make up our current budget short-fall. This means my study schedule won't be terribly disrupted. (Side Note: Please pray for me as I study this weekend and next week for midterm exams. Yikes!)
I've never been a waiter before, so I've got a lot to learn. I've got even more to learn about Italian food. Today I've been trying to memorize the descriptions of the different kinds of pasta noodles. Many of you probably know more about this than I do, so here's a little quiz for fun. The winner gets an entree of his/her choice on me (I'll use my employee discount of course) the next time he/she visits (or the first time you visit if you've not been here yet). The winner is the first person to leave a comment with every answer correct. Two rules: No Googling. No research of any kind.
Match the description on the left with the correct noodle on the right.
1. Long, thin, round noodles
2. Long, flat noodles
B. Shell3. Tube-shaped pasta with ridges
C. Ravioli4. Long, extra-fine, thin noodle
D. Rotini5. Long, large, tube-shaped pasta
E. Capellini6. Pasta pillow stuffed with meat or cheese
F. Spaghetti7. Corkscrew-shaped
G. Manicotti8. Seashell-shaped
H. Lasagne9. Long, flat sheet of noodles
