The other day I came across an old Crate and Barrell gift certificate, and by old I mean it was a wedding gift. I've been divorced for oh I don't know... 7 yrs now so you get the idea when I say OLD I'm not exaggerating! In fact it's so old that it's paper which is why I didn't use it for a long time. We didn't have a store and I didn't know how to go about redeeming it. But I tacked it and ended up getting it in the mail today... a set of reusable produce bags, a 4 cup measuing cup with a scale built in and my fav.... a mandolin! I've wanted it forever so was super psyched to try it. I happily sliced a few zucchinis then decided to get started on the salad fixins. So there I am slicing away at some celery when zip, off goes my finger tip right into the salad!! We aren't talking a tiny bit, we're talking a big chunk. OUCH! It's still my fav but I'll def be more careful when I use it! Here's me... the injured!
