Day 4 of our theme week! This week’s theme is brought to us by the blog, Smiling Eggplant and its owner, Cynthia! Cynthia has also recently started a Facebook page, Italian food words, a fun page that explains words and phrases related to Italian food and cooking. Let’s help her build an audience for her Facebook page!  You will be surprised what you can learn about Italian language by studying its food and cuisine!

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the word, l’anguria, which means watermelon.  You can also use the word il cocomero. Cynthia warns us not to confuse the il melone with watermelon.  See the noun used below it its context:

L’anguria è l’ideale per chi vuole mangiare qualcosa di fresco in estate. È uno dei frutti maggiormente dissetanti, rinfrescanti e ricchi d’acqua. Preferisco mangiarlo tagliato a fette. mia madre invece, preferisce mangiarlo tagliato a dadini assieme ad altri tipi di frutta.

Watermelon is idea for those who want to eat something fresh in the summer.  It is one of the most refreshing and rich in water.  I prefer to eat it cut in slices.  My mother, on the other hand, prefers to eat it cubed along with other kinds of fruit.
