What does the term "sweet bread" mean to you? To me, it covers all the pumpkin bread, zucchini bread, banana bread, etc... varieties. And imagining such, I asked for "sweet bread" as part of the Christmas party breakfast signup sheet yesterday. Nick, however, felt compelled to direct me to wikipedia:
"Sweetbreads is the name of a dish made of the thymus gland or pancreas of an animal younger than one year old. These animals are usually lambs or calves." Sick.
Give me a break. No one actually knows or assumes this, right?
