Challenge: Hunting for Words that start with M for #alphabethunt
Hello Steemit!!! Join me in this fun challenge!
I have several instruments in my music room. A not-so-usual instrument that I have is a Mandolin. It is a Neapolitan or round-backed mandolin.
This beautiful instrument belonged to my Dad who played the mandolin.
A mandolin (Italian: mandolino ; literally "small mandola") is a stringed musical instrument in the lute family and is usually plucked with a plectrum. It commonly has four courses of doubled metal strings tuned in unison (8 strings).There are many styles of mandolin. What I have is the Neapolitan or round-backed mandolin.
The round-back has a deep bottom, constructed of strips of wood, glued together into a bowl.Source
2️⃣ Marrow (bone)
One of my favorite comfort foods is Osso Bucco. It is an an Italian dish made with veal shank containing a marrow filled bone, stewed in wine with vegetables and seasonings.
Here's a quick step-by-step recipe on
How to make Osso Bucco.
Marrow from cooked bones can be eaten. I love marrow eaten spread on toast. You may also like to know about the vegetable kind of marrow.
Marrow is found in the middle of our bones. Marrow produces many cells vital to keeping us alive, including red blood cells.
3️⃣ MalletI keep a mallet in my kitchen as one of the tools I use in preparing food. I use it mainly for cutting vegetables with thick and hard exteriors, like this Kabocha squash.
A mallet is a type of hammer. Mallets are often made of rubber or wood and are used where a metal hammer will be too hard. Mallets have large heads, so they do less damage to something they hit than a smaller hammer or another tool would.
A mermaid is a mythical creature that is half woman and half fish. A male mermaid is a merman.
I collect things that depict mermaids, such as a Mermaid bill holder, a Mermaid silver bar, and a Mermaid Silver coin.
With most of Earth covered in water, it is not surprising that folklore of many cultures believed the seas were filled with many mysterious creatures, mermaids and serpents being the most popular.
Mermaids have fascinated the imagination of people for hundreds of years in cultures around the world. For ages, sailors and people in coastal towns and villages around the world all had stories of encountering sea maidens.
Mermaids are the object of many silver coins, rounds and bar designs worldwide.
A medal is a small metal disk, usually round or a cross or star any other shape. Medals are given to someone who has done something special, or as a prize for winning a competition.
I have medals receive while I was in school as well as from my professional work. But I do not display them. What I do have hanging on the wall are the fun medals like these ones!
For 5 or 6 years, my sorority sisters batchmates did the Disney Tinkerbell Half Marathons from the 1st year they started it, hehehe! We eventually stopped doing it, but we sure had many fun memories.
6️⃣ Matchbook & Matchbox
A matchbook is a different way to store matches than the more common matchbox.
Matchbooks are essentially a folded over piece of cardboard with a rough strip on the outside for striking the matches on.
The matches in the matchbook are all attached together in a row, and also attached to the inside of the matchbook.They are also made from cardboard, and must be torn off before they can be used.
There you have it, my friends! My selection of SIX words starting with the letter M for this week's #alphabethunt.
