I was born in England, and left in 1967 to go to Miami, Florida, where I have resided ever since. When I arrived here, they did not know or understand the word "mutton" and used only the word "lamb" for all meat from sheep. They typically did not eat any form of lamb/mutton/sheep back then. But it has gained some favor more recently. They called the facial hair "lamb chops". For some time now, one can find lamb (the meat) around Eastertide. The Miami area used to be mostly a lot of Notherners (N.Y. area) and some Southerners (N. & S. Carolina, Georgia). Now it is 75% Hispanic.Hi there,
Lately I kept noticing "mutton chops" in David Nicholls's books [he is British], and then last night I heard "lamb chops" for the first time on Seinfeld. Is "lamb chops" used in the US more than "mutton chops"?
