Word for the day

Last night, while reading bed time stories to the Girl Child, she stumped me. She asked me how to say "clam" in French. I could not remember at all. So I looked it up this morning when I got to work in my handy Larousse. In French, clam is palourde. And now I know exactly why I could not remember this word last night. I never knew it before.

With French you can always wing it. Just add a "le" at the front and an "é" at the end. Clam becomes "le clamé".

And talk louder. You always have to talk louder.

You obviously don't stand around reading the food can labels while you're cooking!

No, I guess not. That said, I rarely cook with clams. My wife doesn't like them.
