well dressed

This morning I worked in the kitchen as a slight variation to the doctor's office.  Yulia put me to work on the salad dressing.  I dutifully poured in the soymilk, oil, and yeast, trying to figure out what ingredients to mix in to make it flavorful yet healthy. Humming a little Greig to myself, I pushed the buttons to "high".  The blender worked beautifully, and I was tallying up the benefits of garlic as I turned off the machine, my dressing almost complete.  I just had to throw in a little dill, and it would "smakte veldig godt!" 

The lid had a mind of it's own though.  I pushed.  I pulled. I pushed and pulled.  Pulled and pushed.  Finally with a zing it came off.  Next thing I knew, salad-dressing was flying everywhere all over the counter, onto the floor, all over my apron, and down my shirt.  Even if the dressing wasn't meant for external use, I must say after that episode, that I was pretty "well dressed".
