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".

LOL Martina! Love the picture. Too bad you weren't wearing your "needs more Garlic" shirt to perfume it with its own.

Good thing you weren't working in the doctor's office that morning. Who knows what could have happened...

:) Kelsey: it's is a good thing I didn't work at the doctor's office, because the day before I was in the kitchen and almost seriously chopped my finger (thankfully it shaved off a chunk of fingernail instead). Maybe I'm just not made for big kitchens!

Christen: remember making the haystacks with the olive juice all over my desk? ;)
