World on the Square was this past Saturday, and again Chef Lana Cullison prepared masses of food. This year, I got to help!
Meanwhile, Mom sliced carrots. Here, you can see the broccoli florets, celery, onions, and garlic on the Asian tray.
In the foreground are some of the many squash that were donated by people in the community, and a colander filled with cilantro, parsley, and green onions (or scallions, if you want to be that way).
Lana let me use her professional chef's knife, with which I disproved the aphorism, "The sharper the knife, the less likely the cook is to cut himself." Maybe that's only true for boy cooks. I was mincing away at the parsley when -- you're way ahead of me -- I tagged my thumb.
"WHOO!" I separated knife from target as if somebody had pulled a trigger. Parsley flew in a cloud.
LANA: What happened?
ME: I cut myself.
LANA: Are you hurt badly?
ME: I'm okay, but look at all the parsley I wasted!
I slapped a bandaid on it, cleaned up the parsley, and went on with the work.
I passed the chef test. :)
Delicious dishes. I got pictures of most of them, which I'll post on my blog tomorrow.
