Official weigh in today at WW - didn't gain and didn't lose.  Considering the up and down week I've had, I'm ok with that.

By the way - did you all know that cooking is dangerous?


Last night I was cooking up some yummy stir fried chicken.

I wanted to give it a little kick, so I figured I'd add some fresh ginger to the mix.
Now, for those of you who don't know - ginger root looks like this.
it's tough, and fibrous, and not the easiest thing to work with.
Luckily I have this amazing kitchen tool called a microplaner.  It's like a grater only the 'bladed' portions are smaller and sharper.  Like, amazingly sharp.

So, I lean the microplaner against a plate, put the ginger against the blade and push really hard (cause remember that the ginger is really tough).  I manage to do this well about twice before the ginger slipped off the blade and I managed to slam my knuckles against the blades on the microplaner --- Yeah  I grated my hand....

So - who wants chicken??

  1. I agree... cooking IS dangerous. I have managed to cut my right index finger in three different places. I hope the food tasted great!
