Reason #1 Why I Will Never Be A Great Cook

Lately, as I have been cooking or baking, it has come to my attention, once again, why I will never be a great cook.

I absolutely HATE to touch most "raw" foods. Raw meat is at the top of my "hate to touch" raw foods. And chicken is at the top of that list.

I also dislike getting my hands dirty baking...anything. So, while I will roll the occasional cookie into a ball, and lightly knead the rare scone or biscuit...when I was introduced to a batter yeast bread that I don't have to TOUCH, I was so happy. (More on THAT bread soon!)

This dislike of dirty hands keeps my gardening nice and simple too. Gotta use that shovel!

Wonder where this "dislike" came from?

you know, i used to get grossed out about touching certain things, but then one day i realized: i can wash my hands afterward. no matter how disgusting, some soap and hot water always made me feel better.

i once had a job cleaning public rest rooms so.... lol

you could always get someone else to cut things for you. ;)

(p.s. i made perfect chocolate chip cookies today, i am so excited!! i will post about it on my regular blog.)

Ewww, I hate touching raw meat, too - it was esp. yucky when I was pregnant. I buy big packs of chicken and ground beef/pork from Costco and divvy it up for the freezer, and I really do NOT enjoy that.

I used to make burgers with saran wrap on my hands. Now they have those plastic gloves you can use for touching meat, etc. Meat is the worst for me. First, I don't like meat in general & BONES are the worst! (I don't willingly eat meat with bones EVER, and NEVER pick it up & chew on it.) It takes all I can not to throw up when OTHERS do this... especially sucking on the bones?? What's with THAT?!
Maybe the gloves would help you, tho... And you ARE a great cook with great ideas. (Please dont think I threw up at your house bc of the food!) :) Tam
