Just a friendly reminder to be careful and attentive in the kitchen whether you’ve 30 years or 300. Allowing yourself distraction can lead to mishaps. I’m lucky that I didn’t grab the oven rack harder last night. It was only at about 400°F and I only lightly scorched the pads of two fingers.
- Keep your knives sharp.
- Your floor and countertops as tidy as possible of stuff, children, pets…
- Have good pot holders that fit you and how you cook so that you don’t ignore them as I do and use whatever towel you grab as you open the oven door.
Me? I’ll be ordering some ironing board fabric to fix my lack of pot holders i’ll use problem.
