HOW the dinner CAN BE A MEATBALL???
Maybe it's a really big one
Last full rations. Tomorrow we start with half meatballs. Enjoy your dinner; here's to our rescue (tips non-existent wine glass)!
Why is it ένας and not ένα?
Because κεφτές is masculine, not neuter.
So ένας κεφτές is not a nominative case here?
ένας κεφτές is in the nominative case here.
So I must be missing something. Thanks anyway.
nominative VERB TO BE nominative
I find it a bit misleading, that both sentences can be correct here with and without the word ένας. In other examples failing to include the "a" results to a mistake whereas here is requested.
Can you not say "κεφτεδες"?
Κεφτέδες is the plural of κεφτές. A meatball= Ένας κεφτές, meatballs=Κεφτέδες
I think when in Greece I was only offered κεφτέδες and never the singular form. Is that likely? I've never heard κεφτές in the singular before. Maybe I mixed with a whole lot of greedy people!
This is just a fun sentence. Or it might have been a mistake but hey why not a little fun?
Check out the image here. Now that would feed a lot of people.
I see now. That's some meatball!
I found the name in the comments and from the photo it looks like the same girl>
Indeed it must be to have its own theme song. ;)
Yes if you have them several but in that case you run the risk of getting overweight.
Apparently i'll be left hungry tonight :D
On Google, for κεφτε I get 93,100 hits. For κεφτεδακια I get 1,400,000+ hits. What's the difference?
κεφτές is the main word, κεφτεδάκι is a diminutive ("little meatball"?). It sounds cuter or could be used to refer to a smaller ball.
In Romanian, a meatball is similarly called 'chiftea'.
yes they both come from Turkish, köfte
what is the difference between κροκετα and κεφτες?
Κροκέτα is a small ball that can be made of fish, cheese etc. Κεφτές is a ball made of minced meat, or τοματοκεφτές made of tomatos and κολοκυθοκεφτές made of courgettes.
