jovonista multicheck dress
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?

    I agree- meat can be confusing. I just typically eat what’s yummy and try not to think about where it comes from! 🙂

    Dear Corinne, for me it is also hard to know that we kill the babies (the most defenseless of the animals) and eat them …

    I learn each day so much, especially how less I know!

    And your dress is really cute <3

    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.

    • December 28, 2013 / 9:07 pm

      Haha, I’ve never tried horse!

    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.
