SoCS – An Unfortunate Incident
When I saw today’s SoCs prompt – food, I immediately thought back to a couple of weeks ago. It was Super Bowl Sunday to be exact. I was prepping vegetables for an omelet when one finger decided it was not going to get out-of-the-way of the super sharp ceramic knife. Well, needless to say this unfortunate incident required a trip to the emergency room.
Since I tried to sever the tip of my finger, I’ve done very little that involves a knife other than a butter knife or one of those serrated plastic knives, which by the way – although they may not relieve your hand of a much-needed digit, they do hurt. I’ve probably lost a couple of pounds because of my lack of cooking. Hip hip hooray. Anyway, I’ve had more salads than I care to think about, oatmeal, cream of wheat, PB&Js, tuna sandwiches and anything you cut with a plastic knife. I even had the guy at the cheese counter slice my cheese.
Anyway, it’s healing rather nicely. When I went to the grocery store today, I decided that today is the end of the fear of the ceramic knife. I loaded up on vegetables and a few other things that will require using a proper knife. The interesting part is I don’t particularly care for cooking, but I actually missed preparing halfway decent healthy meals.
Sunday’s dinner will consist of a few specialties.
- thin cut pork chop lightly floured, quick fried to brown and finished in the oven
- smashed zucchini with garlic and red chile peppers
- caramelized fried apples
