This whole hand thing is becoming a drag.
While I no longer have to force my two digits to “bend and stretch“-I’m still quite swollen and numb in parts. Plus, I think I’m getting hooked on Vitamin E oil. Not ingesting it, just using it to massage the hand and scars. Stinging from tender and dry cuts is not pleasant.
As for cooking-my husband is still helping with the prep work. Yesterday-our daughter-in-law and I hung out and I put together a noodle pudding.
I’ve found that if I hold one pot handle with my “good” hand (that being rather an operative word at this time, I think “less bad” is better)and lean the other handle on my forearm this gets me from the stove to the collander.
My small appliances are in the same shape. As I was blending my custard mix for the pudding I heard something funny coming out of my 14 year old blender. The hard rubber blade on the base broke.
I’ve decided since our budget is rather thin-I’m going to start using that “new” 3 year old food processor for all my pureeing needs until further notice.
Luckily-I believe in Alton Brown (the food guru on Food Network) who says he doesn’t believe in unitaskers. Neither do I. I even use my mother’s hand-me-down (read this: from her wedding gifts)melon baller to help core pears and apples.
And now, my swollen and numb hand is stinging and stabbing-so I’m out of here for another week.
