As I told you before, the cook’s on leave, and the backup cook is not picking up the phone. So, I kinda helped in the kitchen.
My first experience cutting an onion wasn’t that bad. I was supposed to cut it in half, and after several useless attemps, I somehow managed to make several deep cuts in the onion, but failed to cut it in half. At least I din’t cut my finger..
My first experience stirring the vegetables was quite better than cutting an onion. All you have to do is stand, and stir, like an old granma. To make it better, I imagined I was making a potion, with Professor Snape monitoring me, and I couldn’t afford to make a mistake. But it got a bit unbearable after some time, with all the staem coming on your face, and your feet aching from standing to long. After about five minutes or so, I collapsed.
However, peeling a cucumber is not that tough. All you have to do is take that victorinox peeler, and move it on the cucumber. But its not a child’s play either. AT first, the peeler moved against the peel aimlessly, not even making a scratch. But with a superhuman effort, I made a scratch, and that was the best moment of my life. I felt so proud that I had learnt to peel a cucumber. But the labour wasn’t over yet. The whole cucumber remained to be peeled, so I peeled, and peeled, and peeled, and voila! the cucumber was peeled!
Well, to my readers, I would like to give one simple message, beware of onions and knives and hot ovens when working in the kitchen
