Food for thought

December 22, 2014

I am reading alot of novels by US authors at the moment, whether beta reading, reviewing or for fun, but there are a few things that I just don't get.
Collard greens - what on earth are those? Tea with cream - that's so very wrong: it's tea with milk! And gravy with biscuits!! In the UK biscuits are sweet things (something like cookies) and the thought of eating them with gravy - yuck! Then there's pot roast - is this a joint of meat or a chicken, roasted in the oven? And is it called pot roast because it's put in a pot, or have I got this totally wrong and it's actually put in the sort of pot we call a saucepan, and cooked on the stove with water. And if it is what we call a roast, why would anyone want to eat it with salad! It's supposed to be eaten with gravy. Oh, wait - what do you Americans mean by gravy? We call gravy a type of sauce made out of the juices of the roasted meat. Are we talking about the same thing?
I'm soooo confused.
