Here's a line from the above recipe that the late George Carlin took to task:

1. Preheat oven to 350F

Why not write, "Heat the oven to 350F"?

Because Carlin was too dumb to realize they mean different things.

For those interested in short stories, here are my first two years of hunting... Year Three - Bow Hunting, is in the works and will be posted at the end of the hunting season, in December.

The Chronicles of Sheena, Years One & Two

Had the best shoulder venison stew last night.... so tender, I'd forgo eating beef for the rest of my life if I had enough venison to sustain the family throughout the year, every year. Really stunningly amazingly delicious...

Huh? Are there recipies written where you put your food in a cold oven? I'm no chef, but I'm pretty sure every recipe I've ever seen called for putting the food into an oven that's at cooking temperature, not something that's still warming up.

Yes, there are, in particular certain types of baking. There are also some cooking vessels that cannot handle the stress of going into a hot oven. For example, I would not want to put my pizza stone into a 500F oven, but I'd certainly want to put my pizza on a pre-heated stone in a pre-heated oven.

That makes sense. I've only used pyrex and metal, and I guess cookbooks I've seen assume that's what most people are going to use.

Gosh, some don't get the point. What's the difference between a heated oven and a preheated oven?

I can see the difference between a heated oven and a preheated oven..vaguely. What I have never been able to figure out is why they use term near miss for a airplane accident that ALMOST happened. A near miss, by definition, is a hit.

Mim, I tried to get some hunters together after last season for a venison stew cook off. Maybe we'll have to try to arrange that this year, what with you and Yorick vowing to take multiple stags each! Personally, I think mine will win, but I would love to try others. smile

I'm thinking four or five different recipes, and each contestant is allowed to bring in three friends for blind tasting. They all vote on the best, and the winner takes the prize, whatever that might be.

Vowing? I've spent 20 hours (30 preseason scouting) so far out there without a shot. 40 hours to go, right Rob?

Stags? Saw four bucks yesterday. Had a long broadside look at one, 15 yards with the recurve. Didn't take it. Strictly a lady's man.
