So if you are thinking about having veg today keep this in mind enter">http://tinyurl.com/clwfyvu">enter link description here it got even better when I read that it had something to do with National Food Safety Week.
What is National Food Safety Week, some site that warns you which foods are most likely to attack you? And the quote "Preparing hard root vegetables is something better left to the professionals" is a line that could have been from a Monty Python sketch.
How did we manage to survive for so long with out all this advice and guidance on eating veg.
Perhaps it was all that pre-teen practice sawing logs and chopping wood with an axe for the fire, digging up and peeling spuds, turnips, etc. and helping in preparing and cooking dinner for 7 that has enabled me in my adulthood to manage somehow.
But then we'd never heard of a 'Take-away' except for the Chip Shop on rare occasions when on an outing.
The only accident of note we had in the Kitchen was when my mother was trying to remove the damn fool plastic wrap from a swede, the knife slipped and she ended up stabbing herself in the hand, blood everywhere.
Moral of the story beware clingfilm it'll get you every time.
30 years ago I was slicing an orange with a serrated knife and was distracted by a kitchen timer going off. Went nearly to the bone through a finger, the worst part was that there was acidic orange juice on the knife blade right into the cut.
I still have the scar and will never forget the worst pain I have suffered so far in my life.
Blackhat, sounds about on par with my eye-tooth extraction 10 years ago. Full throbbing double abscess in roof of mouth - 2 months straight of antibiotics had no effect. Tooth extracted (at ordinary Dentist Surgery) through the abscess with no anaesthetic at all. I didn't move or make a sound - I must have been paralysed with pain.
