Cooking update

I am sitting, and my hands are chapped. I do have lotion and I will use it.

I don't think I've ever washed my hands quite so much.

I made the stuffed peppers. I, of course, used my hands to mix the meatballs. This meant washing them before starting, after mixing them and then after mixing them again because I forgot the tomato sauce. My mother always taught me that when you're making a stuffed vegetable or other meatball in sauce dish, everything that goes in the sauce goes in the meat. This was a tomato based sauce, so I needed to add some tomato - I used some liquid from a can of crushed tomatoes. But it meant squooshing things around again. And then I cut the green peppers, which meant rinsing the seeds out of each one, and then I made the meatballs. Which meant I had to keep dipping my hands in water and then I had to wash them again.

And then it was time for the turkey. And that meant washing the turkey and putting it on the pan and washing my hands and seasoning and turning the turkey (I start my turkeys on their breasts) and washing my hands again and then washing everything I used, and my hands were greasy afterwards, so...

I use a moisturizing hand soap, but there are limits. I'm going to find my lotion now...

(And, btw, with the turkey and the peppers cooking, I'm done.)
