Kitchen Murder... and Kitchen Wildlife



One job in the kitchen that I really *hate*.... chopping cabbage...I tend to slaughter it....

red cabbage 120809

Even MORE so if that cabbage is red and gives me pink fingers...the process becomes even closer to a killing!


Then why do I do it? I think, "If I hate it so much, how much will another person also dislike it, especially after coming home tired from work, with a baby to feed several times at night!" and I find I can do it after all....

That said, I just *love* that knife in (one *hate* to be balanced by one *love*!) in the picture. When one has a very sharp, good knife, one may fear for the length of one's fingers....but food preparation is a doddle...well...everything except cabbage, I mean! Cabbage...somehow the chopping sort of multiplies as you cut it in slices, you know what I mean? I slice and chop, slice and chop, slice and chop..then there are the big bits to slice and chop yet again...

I want to know how each of YOU tackles this chopping-cabbage task....


Oh, and we also often have leopard bananas in the kitchen...want to see them?



120809 leopard bananas


That banana stand, I am sure, is from

IKEA

...you can also see some ordinary bananas waiting to be hanged, until they are either eaten...or spotted!

And the flowers? I *love* flowers, I get them whenever I can. The home always has at least 3 vases of flowers!


OK, I stopped the chopping because of an intense desire to share all this with you lot...must finish murdering that cabbage and wash my hands before GD wakes up!
