Aitchbone? Aitchbone! Really? I’d never heard the word aitchbone before.

According to the dictionary I’m using, the aitchbone is a cut of meat that includes the hipbone. Maybe if I did more cooking I’d be more literate.

I assume that it is called the aitchbone because hip starts with h and, as I learned in the previous entry, aitch is the word that means the letter h. As I said in the previous entry, why we need a word for the letter h is beyond me, but there you have it.

Is it just me or does the aitchbone need better marketing? I don’t know about you, but filet mignon, New York sirloin, and tenderloin sound much more appetizing to me than aitchbone.
