Notes on my quest to find the best in myself, physically, mentally, emotionally.

This, my friends, is the kitchen tool from hell!!
It was purchased in a weak moment while strolling thru the State Fair Exhibits some 15 years ago and has been hidden from my sight until recently when I rediscovered it. Notice those blades!! They are sinister. Unfortunately, they are not sharp enough to cut through, oh lets say, a sweet potato or a carrot. Hard root veggies are this things down fall!!
Laura's palm, on the other hand, or actually this hand, was a piece of cake. Cut through it like a hot knife through butter. 3 times!
As with all things, blaming the tool is kind of senseless. I wasn't using it properly and was actually anticipating something like this happening. Just trying to avoid it. Not such a good job. Well, I got no sympathy from hubby, but he's gonna wash the dishes. And I am gonna trash this thing and get me a good mandolin. I think my $20 spent at the State Fair 15 years ago has long out lived its value.
