They're at it again. The advertising experts. They're attracting me to food with words. The latest is a sandwich shop inviting me to enjoy their new, "carved" turkey sandwich. Mmmmmm CARVED turkey. Sounds good, doesn't it?
I guess it sounds better than "sliced" turkey and perhaps more appetizing than "chopped" or "diced" or "pulled". It's pork they "pull" and I'm not sure why. Sliced pork would do just as well.
Have you noticed not many are inviting us to eat anything "deep fried" these days? It's because we know that's not good for us. So, they call it "crispy" or "crunchy". That's good for us, right?
I commend the local place that serves up "fire grilled steak". That sounds good. There's another place were you can get "braised beef". That sounds good, too. But, at home, we call it pot roast.
Now, if we could just come up with a more attractive name for the "beef on a bun" luncheon. I'm not showing up for that but, if you were to call it "Slow roasted baron of beef on freshly baked, homemade buns", I might try it.
