Today I began cooking a month’s worth of dinners. I’ve done a couple of weeks worth before, but never this big of an undertaking. I started last night.
Since I had a boat load of veggies to chop I bought a new razor sharp knife. I was almost finished chopping buckets of onions when I started talking to Tristan. Yep, you guessed it, I cut myself.
I decided to pack it in for the night and slipped the knife into the soapy water in the sink. I then forgot said knife was lurking beneath the dirty water. I put my hand in to find the cutlery on the bottom and cut my other hand!
I spent another 30 minutes sitting in the living room trying to stop the bleeding.
Today, with the addition of band-aids on two fingers, I started cooking ingredients I had so diligently prepped the day before. I looked down at one point and one of the band-aids was missing!!! I had only made three dishes so I dug through them all. I couldn’t find it! I looked on the floor, in the trash and the sink of soapy water (minus the knife this time) to no avail. I debated what to do…could I get away with it? No, I had to throw the three dishes away.
Finished the cooking and took Allison to an orthodontic appointment. I had been sitting in the waiting room for ten minutes or so when the reception said to someone, “Do you smell onions?”
