I'm not an accident prone person. I don't stumble and fall frequently. I've yet to break a bone (knock on wood). I rarely fall and injure myself. The only place I'm accident prone is in the kitchen. At least once a night Tai will hear me say ow! I usually burn, cut, or otherwise injure myself during the cooking process. This week I grated my finger on the zester! My beloved husband keeps the band aids close since I frequently need them!
Tai thinks this is sign that I rather not be cooking. So far from the truth. Usually my mind wanders and I forget what I'm doing or I forget that I just took that pan out of the oven. Sometimes I think I'm Claire and that don't need my mitt to get that pan out of the oven. Often times I'll remember in time. Others I'm not so lucky. I've never seriously injured myself in the kitchen. Never required stitches or anything but I go through a lot of band aids :)


  1. I am pure evil when it comes to my fingers. I am constantly cutting and injuring them.

    I think the saddest thing I ever did to them was I in doing the trial run of the grooms cake managed to cut a good chunk out with the vegetable peeler. I still have no idea how I did it.

    And there was the other time in making pumpkin soup, the spoon flipped out of the pan and smacked me on my bare thigh. I still have a scar from that.

  2. Okay, can I just tell you that I tried the Crash Potatoes last night??? Didn't realize that Red Potatoes and New Potatoes were not the same thing!! Red Potatoes do not smash so well... by the way. I have pictures of the mess that I will post...
    But they did taste yummy!!

    I am trying the rib recipe Friday - I'll let you know how that turns out!


Shiny! I love comments.
