01:32 am - Quick question about a word.
I'm having a little discussion in rasseff1 about the word "entree", and its usage in the UK and the USA.

Poll #365525 All about entrees

Which phase of a meal is an "entree" for you, and where do you live ?

Appetizer, and I live in the USA.

Entree used to mean main to me, but since I hang out in Australia a lot, I tend to use "main" and "appetiser" instead :-).

On menus here in the US, I think it always means main.

I probably do, but shamefully, I don't know how to type accented characters directly, and couldn't be bothered looking up the HTML codes :-)

I thought about having a "hungry" option as well as thirsty, but I figured one silly option was enough.

I think it's hors d'oeuvres, then entree, then the main course. I may be wrong, though.
As to whether it means appetizer...I'm not sure.
