Madre Ma, and I had been afraid to ask, if you had eaten my " Platero " !! Platero means silver in Spanish and this Andalusian donkey is a star in childrens Spanish literature ... I love donkies and horses ...

Then you set me another puzzle. Boter is Dutch. I had to use Google translate and detect language. In Danish & Norwegian, butter = smr, in Swedish - smr, in German - butter.

Ciao, Bill,

Grazie, for clarifying Bill ... Hee Haw ...

So, please tell me which olive oil varieties have u bought for the $60 ?

Butter, I prefer French or Scandinavian to be honest. Much creamier --- nice aromas and textures.

Kind regards.
Margi.

Yes, but 'boter is beter' sounds better and my Duden covers Nederland but not Danemark. Glad to see you're paying attention.
Speaking of languages, maybe Margi or Luca can explain how a food (mortadella) was named something that is spelled like the words morta and della.

Columela (Spanish) seems to be the most commonly available here.

@ Bill,

Morta Della:

I do not know why linguistics are so bastardized and languages have so many false friends in translation from ITALIAN OR SPANISH TO ENGLISH ... however,

Morta signifies death and Della is OF THE ... obviously this cold cut meat or charcuterie has a significant historical moment of serving it --- and / or it was develped during the slaughter of the seasonal pigs from which it comes ... which is called a Matanza in Spanish ---

Have nice wkend.
Margi. OFF TO DINNER.
