[quote=LEFSElover;681234]I love these threads. Finding it reminded me of the other ones where I learned a lot of really good information.

Spend about a hundred bucks on one good knife.
It'll pay for itself over and over again in all it'll do for you.
My Wusthof 7" chef knife cost me one hundred well spent dollars.
I wish I'd have seen this set at the time of buying mine online.

An infant spoon is the perfect size for filling deviled eggs.

I like to nuke my lemons before I squeeze gits all of the juice. And when I peel grapfruit I drop them in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes the skin just slides off and no whith pith is left behind

I remember a few months ago when a local Dr. had asked me if I had gotten ridden of my Wusthoff knive after it sent me to the clinic for stitches........I looked at him like he was nuts.......are you kidding this thing cost me a $100.......and I love it and it's sharp........it's my fault that I tried to catch it before it fell into the toilet and chip itself on the porcelain and I didn't know the laws of gravity, etc., it's not the knife's fault

A question ... you used the knife in a bathroom?

Expat, I was talking to hubby at work on the phone while I was cutting something in the kitchen one day <--- [yea, ME] and I said loudly, "uht oh, honey I have to go NOW". He asked what was wrong and I told him I'd just cut off the tip of my thumb.........................................I superglued it and butterflied it and it did 'sort of' heal.
