Two bachelors were talking when the conversation went to cooking. “I got a cookbook once,” said the first, “but I could never do anything with it.”
“Too much fancy cooking?” asked the second.
“You said it.” Replied the first guy, “Every one of the recipes began the same way, ‘Take a clean dish and…'”
The bachelors would have done a lot better to invest in disposable cooking methods. If you don’t like scrubbing a baking pan, line it with aluminum foil before baking or just use a disposable aluminum pan and throw the whole thing in the recycle bin when done.
Line the bottom of stove pans and ovens with foil. It’s a lot quicker than scrubbing and scraping.
The Old Testament laws had a lot to say about cleanliness, long before germs were ever thought of by man. Just as with those bachelors, it probably seemed like a waste of time to some people. But the health benefits of cleanliness, definitely redeemed the time.
