list, so I've decided to post something about my other hobby besides
conlangs -- cooking.

How to Make Chicken Cacciatore

Well, start out with just like KFC only raw. (I like the Darth Vader kind
for this dish, not the Luke Skywalker kind, but not everybody cooks the
same.) Then do what you would do before grilling a steak, but be sure to
use only the two most common ingredients. Some cooks might embellish here
like they would do the middle part of Neapolitan stuff (see below), but
beginners should just keep it simple. Now proceed as you would for making
something halfway between an omelette and ossobucco. The next step is sort
of like letting your kids out of the car. After that, you need to add
another ingredient like you would for beef stroganoff -- not the dairy
one, the other one -- and do the combination omelette/ossobucco thing all
over. When that's done, it's just like making Neapolitan ice cream except
that you need to focus mostly on the Neapolitan part. When that's done,
let the kids back into the car and just do like you would for goulash for
a while and you're done.

The end result should taste pretty much like a combination of KFC, steak,
omelette, ossobucco, beef stroganoff, goulash and Neapolitan ice cream.
