  • 08:04:56: Working on CE questions from UK Gird/Luap book & revisions on Kings for US ed.
  • 17:50:33: It's a lot easier to fabricate a carcass with a really good meat saw. And an electric meat grinder. Lamb chops for supper.
  • 17:52:12: Though not all the lamb chops came out the same thickness, due to the inexperience of the operator (that would be me.)
  • 22:42:23: Lamb chops--cooked in cast-iron skillet with a little wine...next time more herbs...but really good.
  • 23:17:58: Maybe, just possibly, I figured out why the scene I'm working on is so stuck. Note to self, and then bed, because I need dawn-brain for it.

Some years ago, when we were approaching our first intentional episode (not counting poor Nameless Heifer, who broke her leg in a hole), my husband looked up "butchery" and discovered that the professional term for disassembly was fabrication. Apparently because the butcher was creating, or fabricating, the cuts of meat seen in stores--or that's what we guessed.

So we use the term both out of respect for the very real skill of professionals who do this for a living and from the awareness that this has to be the most unusual "fabrication" around.

I knew if I looked up the word, it would mean that in one of its definitions, because I know you wouldnt be abusing words.

I didn't check to see if it was in the dictionary with that meaning--lots of occupational word uses take a long time to come to the attention of people outside that occupation.
