Created by: artr

Pronunciation: choubelə

Sentence: In a slightly misguided act of atonement, Gerry started the Double Clean Plate Club. When he was a kid his mother had always pushed him to clean his plate for the starving children of the world. Now with the thought that more is better, members gorge themselves with what Gerry calls chowbella, beautiful food. So far he and his club members have raised a lot more blood pressures than dollars. Next week*s gourmand-a-thon may change that.

Etymology: chow (food) + bella (beautiful - Italian)
