Handheld Mixer Incident – with Food Porn to Compensate


Decades in the kitchen and numerous scars later, I have learnt to always, always get the oven gloves on before diving into the food furnace. Another good culinary practice is to never, never leave knives on the counter while rushing around doing things in its vicinity. Gathered this the hard way, after a near stabbing accident involving a knife falling at speed towards my foot and then almost stepping on the razor-sharp wretched object with my other foot.

But last week, hell of hells, a handheld mixer which was kept in a cupboard at head height, leapt out as I was rummaging around for a coffee grinder and, ouch of all ouches, smashed headlong into my bare, spring-welcoming foot. I doubt bones were broken, but much self sorrow was indulged and the appendage still throbs to remind me of my stupidity.

Maybe I need to wear steel-capped boots while I cook…

I nurse my hurt feelings with some food porn, today’s creations for yet another school fundraising Cupcake Day 😀
