Sense at last, but not from us.

Sense at last, and France leads the way in putting a nail in the coffin of all that vegetarian nonsense of nicking names in order to hide cabbages, carrots and quorn in sausages, pies....... and even barbecues. 

Burger = meat

Steak = meat

Chops = meat

Chicken nuggets = meat

Pies = meat.

Mince = meat

Go veggie by all means but jeepers, call it for what it is and it's never ever a quorn sausage or heaven forbid, a quorn bacon butty!

And frogs legs? I suppose they're classed as meat..personally I'd class 'em as 'disgusting'. Roll eyes

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Is Mincemeat meat?

What are Mince Pies made of?

Re: Sense at last, but not from us.

Ah yes, mincedmeat or mincemeat.

Confusing I know. Smiley

And while we are on the subject, veggie food shaped like cutlets or chops - what's all that about?

Like chicken apparently but like deep fried pigs trotters, tripe and snails, never tried them and never wanted to.

Even us meat eaters have some standards!

I think not.

Pies = meat.

I'm [-Censored-]ed if I want meat in my apple pies!

Well the French are certainly bureaucratic I'll give you that, and I've experienced enough of it to last me a lifetime but this is not that is it, it's common sense not irony.

Well my son over there loves em' but I refuse totally to pay over the odds for something so fiddly, faddish, and which leaves me feeling like those restaurants are having a laugh.

Much rather have a bread roll while I'm waiting for that main course than something looks and tastes like a bit of skinny chicken. Smiley

No.

You never see mincemeat at the butchers.

It's usually labelled minced beef or minced lamb. Never just mince meat.
