Talk About Sharp

Excited about using the food processor I got for Christmas, I couldn't wait to use it.   Skimming through the directions about how it worked and all the other "whoopla," when the Pres went grocery shopping, I asked him to pick up a big, fat head of cabbage.

"Tonight we're having leftover ham with potato salad and cole slaw," I announced.

Off he went while I worked on the potato salad.  Once that was done, I removed all the contents from the box to start washing all the parts.

By the time the Pres returned, I looked like this:

One more thing.  Giving yourself First Aid with one working hand is not easy!  Keeping a tight grip on the pressure point while bandaging is a real challenge but I am glad I took First Aid Training!

OOPS!! But at least you know the blades are sharp. I have a very old food processor that is broken but still usable. I've been wanting a new one but can't get myself to break down and buy one.

They are great machines, but be careful!!!
Funny you should mention a food processor and first aid, JP, because I had the same problem last week. I was putting a food processor blade in a bag and cut my right thumb on the blade. It is very hard to try and bandage yourself when such a smallish cut is bleeding, but got it done as you did.
Oh wow. That must have hurt. I find that I need to be very careful in the kitchen these days. - Margy

Yep, food processor blades are sharp! Hope your finger heals quickly!
Oh, dear. They are indeed sharp implements. I am terrified every time I use my mandeline and make absolutely sure I grip that holder tightly. I'd rather leave a chunk of a veggie than slice my fingers up too. But, I wouldn't give up the food processor or the mandeline.
