Since the 1940's, "Cheerios" have graced many an American breakfast table...what's more 'white bread American" than a bowl of Cheerios, right?
Well, lo and behold:
We don't have small children, so I don't often linger in the supermarket cereal aisle--but when I saw this box, I had to get it. They're muy deliciosos...
Culinary multi-culturation continues. Just had to share.
And because I'm a language-teacher, I have to include this little pronunciation lesson: pronounce 'dulce de leche' as 'dool-seh deh leh-cheh'...and NOT 'dol-cheh'...
A few years ago, Starbucks was serving a 'dulce de leche latte' (not that different from the caramel macchiatto), and almost every time I would order it, the server would 'correct' me by repeating my order:
"Okay, so you want a double 'dul-che' de leche latte?"
To which I would patiently reply, "Yes, I would like a DOOL-SEH de leche latte."
"Okay, a 'dul-che' de leche latte for you, um, what's your first name?"
Please--know how to pronounce what you serve.
If you're going to charge nigh four bucks for a cup of cofffee,
know the difference between Italian and Spanish, POR FAVOR! PER FAVORE!
(And no, 'venti' does not mean 'extra large' in Italian.)
No, that wasn't a rant.
Time for a happy taste to take you to a happy place: dulce de leche breakfast cereal--Bon appétit, amigos!
