Okay, so I haven't actually TAKEN the quiz thingie, but I'm fairly certain I'd fail. Why, you ask? Cuz I'm sure all 1940s wives had this memorized:
I'm proud of myself that I can tell the difference between cow, pig, and chicken meat.
Now, I know the different cuts (sorta kinda.) I know that file mignon tastes good. I know that tri-tip tastes good. I like steak. I like sirloin. I like ground beef. But I couldn't tell you which part of the animal my meal came from.
And I most definitely don't know the "best" way to cook each piece.
There are women - and, let's face it, they all belong to my grandmother's generation - who can look at that cow and say, #1 - broil, #2 - saute, #3 - oven roast, #4 - good for soup, #5 - grill, #6 - pot roast, #7 baste and sear.... There are women who know the difference between panfry and panbroil.
I get to the supermarket and think, "Hmmm ... I think I'll buy some cow."
It doesn't help that I've spent most of my married life (i.e. most of my cooking life) in a foreign country. I can tell you that I really like picanha, mamminha, fraldinha, or costelas, but I couldn't tell you what they are in ENGLISH, let alone what part of the animal I'm eating.
And any meat vocabulary I've learned here is all due to this:
Hi. My name is Becky and I break the Word of Wisdom. Eat red meat sparingly? OBVIOUSLY THE LORD HAS NEVER BEEN TO BRAZIL.
Pretty sure I can point to where it came from on the chart.
