Apparently the veggies resent my lack of blogging about them because as I was slicing the celery, I sliced my thumb too. Cutting myself in the kitchen always makes me feel like such a failure. And then the bandaid gets in the way of future cutting and gets all soggy when dishwashing and generally serves as a mocking reminder of my inability to wield a knife. Sigh. To compensate for my lack of knife skills, I used my food processor and blender to complete the rest of the required tasks. Screw learning how to do things properly, I’ll just buy expensive machines to do my work for me! And somehow acquire a Lifesponsor so that I’m able to afford said expensive machines…
