Many thanks to Isaac who set me a challenge in class today. Isaac went to a Mexican restaurant recently and some of the words on the menu were Spanish. His challenge was, “Do you know what the word ‘albóndigas’ means in English?”. Fortunately I did!
If you want to know how albóndigas are made, here is an albóndigas recipe.
