This is a fun dress. I love the patterns and colours, at first I thought the blue at the front was a little ‘harsh’ but now I appreciate it!
 
Lifestuff.
Few of you might remember that I made a lamb dinner back in April (ahh, looking at that post makes me really miss my old kitchen for taking outfit photos in!).
 
So yesterday I picked up a lamb leg and decided to embark on that adventure again. My second attempt at cooking a lamb dinner turned out pretty well. I am a great cook, whee!
 
This makes me feel so accomplished because I never cook anything apart from beans, toast and dippy eggs. I’m pretty good at putting cheese on things, also. That’s about it for my mad cooking skillz. I even seasoned the lamb myself!
Here is the end result.
Oh, yes I did instagram it.
 
I had a bit of a.. momentthatwasnotmybest at work the other week, regarding meat of the lamb variety. I asked what I believed to be a VERY valid question, but turned out to be Corinne looking like a dick, basically.
 
I asked why beef is called beef when it is a cow, and pork is called pork when it’s a pig and lamb is called lamb when it’s a sheep but chicken, turkey and duck meat are the same names as the animal. I didn’t really get my question answered.. it was more of a ‘What? Lamb meat isn’t sheep, it’s lamb’. 
 
Dumbfounded, in shock, I reply ‘WHAT THEY KILL IT WHEN IT IS A BABY??’. hashtagweh.
 
They tell me about mutton. Ahh, this kind of makes sense now. Lamb is meat from a lamb less than 12 months old, how sad. 
 
I asked about Oxtail which I find out is not tail of a cow.
 
I was delighted to find out that I was correct in thinking that ham, gammon, bacon, sausage and pork are all from a pig. Nobody can explain to me why it has so many different names though!
 
Why is meat so confusing???
 
This wouldn’t be so bad, if I wasn’t a stock control manager. And two of my fifteen departments I’m in charge of are meat and poultry. Gulp.
 
What have you learnt recently?

  6. I love your Asos find! And I agree meat is confusing. And it’s true eating lamb is a sad concept…it’s just a baby 🙁 But even stranger is eating horse meat!!! In Italy horse meat is everywhere (oh my god and I’m admitting to the fact that I like it!!) but in Canada people would never think of eating a horse.

  7. That is really confusing, luckily for me I am vegan 🙂 But your dish looks super delicious. The printed dress is so pretty. Thanks kindly for stopping by, hope your week is going well!

  9. That dress has such an unusual pattern, that makes it really fun! And it seems like there are countless different names for different cuts/types of meat. Even when it comes to beef, I don’t think I could ever get all the cuts and their names straight, but I know that different cuts come from different parts of the animal and that they’re best used in different types of dishes.
