Cooking Disasters

Friday, October 10, 2008

Good thing:
Actually getting to see Michelle Obama on the Daily Show. It was funny and smart. Jon Stewart is pretty hilarious.

Bad thing:
Dropping the chef's knife while cutting chives. In order to not get the pointy end through my toe, I jumped. And flailed my arms. Turns out that flailing one's arms while holding a measuring cup full of finely chopped chives causes a shower of said garnish to rain down on everything in the kitchen. Including, of course, yours truly, who had to spend the rest of the evening shaking chives out of my shirt and hair, and once even finding one in between my toes.

sigh.

I would gladly clean chives off your kitchen floor if it spared your dear little tootsies a knife attack!

As I was going to St. Ives
I met a woman all covered in chives....

I thought Obama was great on The Daily Show. Can't wait to see her in the White...oh I mean Black House! Get the paint ordered!!!

Hee! Thanks Molly! The toes survived. Being clumsy means that I'm very adept at jumping out of the way of falling knives.....I must become more adept at not flinging food, though, apparently.

Especially finely chopped food....

Maggie, I wonder how the rest of that limerick goes....

Obama was wonderful. She played along with Stewart's schtick perfectly: Smart, funny, skewering...

I'm being superstitious. I don't want to jinx anything by assuming that she will end up in the White House.

Either way, though, I say Michelle Obama for First Lady! Michelle Obama for co-host of the Daily Show!
