Michelle preheated her oven every month with the fertility charts. Lesson learned: only preheat your oven if you want to end up with 19 buns.

I never preheat the oven for frozen pizza (or when I cook lasagna). It will go in and after the stated time I have a look to decide how much longer it needs. 

Now, for baking I always preheat religiously. But I am generally very correct with baking recipes. In my experience it makes for a much better final product (of course the recipe has to be good) if every gram is right and all ingredients are at exactly the right temperature. Cooking is much more forgiving...

I'm a follow the directions to the t type cooker, so I pre-heat for everything. I didn't even know people didn't pre-heat until reading this thread. :laughing-rollingyellow:

I also never pre-heat for pizza, potatoes or partially baked bread (I don't know the English word for this), it never really matters.

For baking recipes it is different because it is much more exact. I suck at baking anyway, cooking is more my thing.

This is OT but I hate the term “bun in the oven” for pregnancy, as well as anything referring to a baby “cooking”. It just squicks me out. 

Oh and I preheat. For everything.

Most of the cutesy phrases used about pregnancy squick me out.

I don't mind this thread title though - it's really clever and responds to the current thread drift. lol

I remember when my boy was really new - I had to take him with me to basically - the DMV to get a health card or something. It was in a small town - and I chose it specifically because there were never more than 4 people in there (including the 2 who worked there). Anyway - as I was walking out - a gentleman held the door for me and said "WOW! That baby is fresh out of the wrapper!" 

 

And 5 years later - I still don't know how I feel about that.

I think that's sweet. Especially from a man - generally they don't make any sort of fuss over/mention a baby. :)

I abhor cutesy phrases (and a lot of euphemisms in general) used for anything.

People should say what they mean.

I don't get how "knocked up" is a euphemism for pregnancy.... someone explain.

I don't like pregnancy euphemisms either... Not sure where knocked up is from but thats usually the only one I use and i only say it  facetiously.

I still don’t get it. I know it as an extremely common euphemism but I don’t see the logic. If nothing else, having sperm ‘put up somewhere’ is fairly general to many sex acts and I don’t see that as being specific enough to explain why it’s used to mean pregnancy.

I’m generally with those who dislike euphemisms for pregnancy. For lots of things, actually. Death is another thing that attracts many euphemisms, perhaps to soften the blow. I accept that most euphemisms are used without malice, but I prefer not to use them myself. I didn’t lose my dad. I don’t believe that he ‘gained his angel wings’ or that he has passed on to a better place. He died many years ago and I still miss him - using euphemisms doesn’t change that.

Fun fact: Most newer ovens will indicate that they are preheated before they reach the set temperature. Learned this from my FiL who repaired appliances for a living. When he tested my "new" one (the one that came in the house when we moved), it takes it about 20 minutes after the indicator goes off to be the proper temp. So if you are preheating for baked goods, be aware. You can test it yourself with an oven thermometer if you have one. 

I don't preheat when I put in meats to bake, frozen pizzas, etc...they are done when they are done. I do preheat and pay attention to the exact timing when baking cookies, cakes, etc...

That was one real shocker when I trained in patisserie @louisa05 - ovens lie! I had two oven thermometers at different spots in our old oven (I recognise this is overkill) but even different parts of that very old oven were very different temps

At first I didn't understand that thread drift about ovens was literal and tried to read the responsies as euphemisms for sex and pregnancy. 
It's late, ok?

Reminds me if this part of Kid Farm where "Jean" is writing on her calender. Ovulation she can remember, but can't remember if her kid's name is Betty, Brenda or Barbar

I can't answer your question,but I do have a hilarious story.I'm American.I took German in high school.My German teacher told us that as a teen her mother had a friend from England...the phone rang ..it was her mother's friend "Susan??I knocked your Mother up this afternoon..."German teacher drops the phone,laughing hysterically...the friend was confused..German teacher mother explained what "knocked up" means here in the US....she didn't know and said she had said that to others.Kind of like "shag on the beach" is a dance here in SC>

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
