I find the vagueness of 'Vegetarian dish' a little discomforting, too.


I do wish this restaurant near me had thought a bit more carefully about where to put the first line-break on its blackboard...




Also, Kevin and I have been at the Sunday Papers again, with Kevin bravely attempting to cure me of my debilitating football blindness.

Yeah, that ... and the fact that "all lambs are babies" does not make it any better ;-)

Alison said...

uh-oh. (Incidentally, someone once told me that all lambs were baby lambs.)

Minced baby is actually very difficult to keep on a skewer I would think...

Sunday papers, yay! It would appear we share this rarest of conditions - Football Blindness. Who knew! :D

Oh, and also, as a vegetarian, I demand further investigation of this mysterious dish.

Oh I have that minced baby recipe in a cook book by Jonathan Swift... Not bad... Not that I've tried it.

Re, Football Blindness, try this website:

It turns all the teams into Shakespeare's plays, so it was actually Coriolanus v. Antony & Cleopatra for the final.

Hurray for Sunday Papers! I look forward to it every month.

Last time we came to Tall Tales we had the worst pizza ever from the place next door to the venue. It's starting to look as though we'll never get a nice dinner on Kilburn High Road. Any recommendations?

That baby should be puréed - that way you don't have to bother with chewing. ;)

You wonder why this lamb is specifically a baby lamb, when all lambs are babies... A classic Arthur-esque slip up!

The "baby lamb" specification makes me wonder what sort of chicken the chicken is.

Yay for a new Sunday Papers! I love these days; when you notice how last month ran past with a wave and a shout and you are left with a period of time that is as mysterious as a dish labelled as containing "vegetarian."

At least one might suspect that the dish, however mysterious, is actually vegetarian. A couple of years ago a small-town restaurant in Poland was made famous by its vegetarian soup prepared with the use of bone broth. Because vegetarians don't eat meat, duh.

There's a cafe by mine that regularly sells "beef mush stroganoff" and "Spring V Soup". Still can't work out if it's a lesser successful cousin to Alphabetty Spaghetti or an early homage to the outdoor festival.

And the less I think about the mush, the better.

As a New Zealander (and, as we all know, all New Zealanders are well versed in sheep), I can definitively say that "baby lamb" is rather redundant.
I hope it was purposeful, just for that particular line.
