I'm making a lot of soups this week...and watching videos, for example, of a lentil soup, searching for some variation...and there they are, in all of them...people cutting carrots up or whatever.

I'm sure it is just me. But why not start with "add your cut up vegies", and not show me how a knife works. I think your dad was a smart guy to not get in the middle of that kitchen nightmare, even Gordy Ramsey would run.


When I was growing up, I noticed a great family rift... that started in the kitchen!

When peeling, for example, apples using a knife, my paternal grandmother (my father's mother) always peeled TOWARDS herself...

Whereas my mother, always peeled AWAY from herself...

This caused a lot of tension between my mother and her mother-in-law!

(I think my Dad stayed diplomatically out of it...)

My grandmother insisted peeling TOWARDS yourself is the right way!

But my Mom was equally insistent that peeling AWAY from yourself is the right way!

Things like this could be the start of World War III...

Best wishes!
