We have a semi-national dish called dumpling-pork-cabbage. Guess what are the ingredients.
Horse, spinach and peas?
Oysters? I'm bad at guessing.
Lazy or accurate? What other food has such specificity in its name?
In Denmark you can buy "balls" in the frozen section. "Balls in curry" is a popular dish here.
Still better than Penne (Italian). We have p. today family!!
Yeah, I totally understand that in English they rebranded like macaroni (Spanish macarrones).
Oh, you still call them meatballs? Everyone I know calls them carnispheres.
The Narragansett Indians had a word for a food, 'askutasquash', that was adopted into English as 'squash'..
It means 'eaten raw'.
I don't know, we call cows beef, we call pigs pork, we call deer venison, but we just call chicken chicken. Why don't birds get special names for their meat?
It's because chicken was the poor man's food.
Lamb is just lamb
Meatball is named like Australians name their geography - looking at you, Snowy Mountains.
Don't forget Blue Lake
Nah we get pretty creative with our names, look at South Australia on a map.
dont get me started on western australia
Nah mate, the Northern Territories of Australia is where its at
maybe the australian capital territory too
The aptly named "mount Lofty"
Not to mention the Great Sandy Desert.
or Wet Creek, NSW
Different from Wet Creek, NSFW
"I'm so wet!"
Throwing blue mountains in here
Mt. Disappointment my favourite
Fun fact: The official name of the NASA logo is the Meatball.
It was named after it's cousin, Meat loaf. The kid showed promise. Seemed well rounded, versatile, and active, than the cousin did. The loaf is uninspired, and pretty much just lays around.
Just going to put it out there... Toast.
It's just an adjective that we turned into a noun. You can toast a lot of things, but toast... is just toast.
They tried calling them "beef orbs" but nobody would eat them.
Assume a spherical cow of uniform density in a frictionless vacuum.
assume the cow is a light smooth intensile particle
What is his velocity as he is shot out of a canon ?
Bull balls. Not a meatball!
Those are Prarie oysters
They do also have another name that I dare not mention for fear of being misunderstood and banned from the internet.
"borbs" was an even less popular suggestion, I imagine
I mean...Meat Loaf. Chicken Wing. Fish Stick. Oat Meal. Shredded Wheat. Granola Bar. Mixed Drink. [Insert fruit] Juice...
You're not wrong that it's up there, but I think that's just how we name food hehe.
"Animal derived processed protein sustenance sphere."
I sure feel like some spaghetti and insert above.
No lazy in that 😎
I find it completely normal, cuz in my mothertongue, every food is named as such. Just [main ingredient] + [main procedure].
What are we having for dinner?
Did you just hit that meat with an axe?
"Yam". the people who named it literally named it "yum" in their language cause it tasted pretty yummy
Pretty much all cultures have lazy ways of naming foods.
Aloo palak: potatoes (aloo) and spinach (palak).
Aloo gobi: potatoes (aloo) and cauliflower (gobi) .
Niku jaga: beef (niku) and potatoes (jagaimo) cooked together.
Shira ae: dressed (ae) with white stuff (shiro)(whatever you like dressed in a white sauce made from tofu, sesame, and miso).
Age dashi tofu: Tofu deep-fried (age) and served in dashi.
I know this is only two cultures. Other people have also given plenty of other food names in English. I think this is enough to see a pattern.
Fried rice and BLT are pretty lazy too now that you mention it
BLT? Black little things?
Should they have more complicated names?
Not at all. Their names are succinct, but their quality is not defined by the simplicity of what they're called
I'll have a cured pork belly, iceberg lettuce and Roma tomato on 2 slices of wholemeal bread please
Well, the Dutch word for baguette is stokbrood, which literally translates to stickbread
