Jovonista Multicheck Print Dress – ASOS
Boots – ASOS
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!
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.
