I accidently stabbed myself in the hand while I was trying to get the pit out of an avocado today. The good folks over at Avocado.org say:
“Remove the seed by sliding the tip of a spoon gently underneath and lifting out. The other common seed-extraction method – striking the seed with a knife and twisting – requires some skill and is not recommended.” Guess I should have read that first, huh?
Fabgrandpa was outside washing the awning. He heard me scream and came running inside to see what happened. Don’t worry, it isn’t as bad as it sounds, just a tiny wound in between my middle and ring finger on my left hand. It didn’t require stitches or anything. It DID hurt like hell, though
The remedy? An application of New Skin and Patron.
I got that little bottle of Patron about two years ago. It has been living in my “office drawer” since then, waiting for just the right occasion. It was just right and just enough for today.
Dinner tonight was leftover blackeyed peas, cornbread, and fried spam. Not very exotic, but filling and good. And I didn’t have to cook.
The recipe for the day:
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Baking Mix or your favorite gluten free pancake mix
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
Mix all ingredients except bananas. Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet. When the skillet is hot, pour pancake batter in. While the pancakes are cooking on the first side, put slices of banana on top. When the pancakes are browned on the bottom, flip over and cook on the banana side until browned. Serve with butter and syrup. The taste of cooked bananas is soooo good!
