Язык и пословицы

Die Sprache ist das Herz des Volkes, die Sprüchwörter aber sind die Adern, die das Blut nach allen Theilen des Körpers hinleiten. Язык — это сердце народа, а пословицы суть жилы, по которым кровь растекается по всем частям тела.


Nachos are a popular food based on nixtamalized corn, of Mexican origin associated with Tex-Mex cuisine that can be either made quickly to serve as a snack or prepared with more ingredients to make a full meal. In Mexico, they are called totopos instead. In their simplest form, nachos are tortilla chips (totopos) covered in nacho cheese or shredded cheese and/or salsa. Sometimes French fries, potato chips, or popcorn are used rather than tortilla chips. First created circa 1943 by Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya, the original nachos consisted of fried corn tortillas covered with melted cheddar cheese and sliced jalapeño peppers.
Nixtamalization typically refers to a process for the preparation of maize (corn), or other grain, in which the grain is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution, usually limewater, and hulled.

Crede mihi bene qui latuit bene vixit, et intra

Fortunam debet quisque manere suam, Ov. T. 3, 4, 25.


He lives the best who from the world retires,

And, self-contained, to nothing else aspires.
