Chop chop

“Instead of chopping yourself down to fit the world, chop the world down to fit yourself ~ D.H Lawrence


Chopping has never been my strong or safe suit. While chopping, I’m likely to cut a finger or two. Not all the way, thankfully but a nick is definitely on the cards. I’ve gotten those gadgets that one can use to chop or slice veggies but in my hands, they aren’t safe either. I have slice bits of my fingers with the carrots.

They say practice makes us perfect so I guess I need to do a lot more practice yet for I’m in no way perfect. I envy those people who I see on the cooking shows who slice, dice and chop at lightening speed without hurting themselves or anyone else in the process.

Till such time that I become perfect at chopping, I’ll try to be as careful as I can for I do need all my fingers and thumbs.

  1. In Thumbs, Sabrina Carpenter discusses all of the hate that is happening in our world and that every day people wake up, and there is another news story all the time and people should be doing something to try and change it.

  2. I’ve learned a few things from cooking shows…If you have the blade in a position where it can do damage – move it!
    And always, always curl your fingers in on the food you are holding. One Chef said to you (especially if you are using a larger knife) that you shoud have the top part of the knife use your holding hand knuckle as a guide. Take your time! Home cooks do not need to rush 😀
