I’m very curious what it means when recipes, directions, or instructions recommend that you “use a generous amount”.

I have a brand new bottle of deep conditioner for my hair and that's exactly what it says in the directions. “After shampooing, apply a generous amount of conditioner to wet hair.” Hmmm.

One of the ingredients on a recipe for chicken fried in a skillet calls for “a generous amount of olive oil”. I’m stumped. Is it a teaspoon, tablespoon, a blob? How big should the blob be? Is it a giant blob or only a small blob?

Well, I just don’t know. All I do know… is that it should be a generous amount.
