He-e-e-e-e-y Mattie, ol' boy,
getting back to your maternal roots, eh?
Smith - FBI - FULL BLOODED ITALIAN
(how'd she get the name "Smith" if she's FBI - unless she's married outside the lineage?)

Yeah the name "Milligan" is from the old country all right. No, not the one with the grapes and olives, the one with all the potatoes.<P>miK.

Some us got the name AND the look.
Some of us got the look but not the name (Smith).
Some of us got the name but not the look (me).
But we all got it inside us. The only question that divides us is:<P>Is it SAUCE? Or is it GRAVY?<P>Your votes are expected.<P>------------------

When conferring with the paisans from the Old Country (not the Old Sod), the straight English translation of the word for the tomato stuff that goes over pasta is "SAUCE" Gravy seems to be an American bastardization of the translation from Italian to English.
Of course, there is the influence of local dialects as well. Add to that the influence of the "Medicans" [Americans) and it becomes impoosible to speak with surety on this topic. I also tend to think as an American as well and so tend to sympathize with Major Tom - Gravy is a meat and potatoes thing and Sauce is Pasta thing.
What is this "noodles" thing? Do any of you remember hearing noodles and meatballs as a kid? Noodles were the things that Campbells put into the cans of Chicken Soup.
How about fresh Italian bread, still warm of course, sliced in half and loaded with fresh slices of tomato drizzled with virgin olive oil and a couple of crushed leaves of basil? Oh a little bit of heaven on earth.......

Polygamy's not legal in this country.<P>On the gravy issue, I agree with my punbrothers (gravy is brown, sauce is red), but some of the most paisanish of my neo-Brooklyn neighbors on Stagnant Island used to ridicule me for not dipping my semolina crusts in GRAVY.<P>Not that Wonder made semolina, but you get my point.<P>Next up on the debate list: does your brasciole have an egg in its middle?<P>And if so, do you find it difficult to walk?<P>------------------

Well, the next time I talk to Mom MOSCHIANO Milligan, I'll just pass along that her boys prefer spuds to spaghetts. No more of those little sausage bread thingys that no one seems to be able to spell.....
