I was planning to make a soup tonight, one that I’ve made and blogged about before (Navy Bean and Winter Squash Soup with Sage Bread Crumbs).
While preparing the squash, I managed to cut my thumb. It was a stupid mistake, one that I knew better than to do, but apparently I wasn’t thinking. So take it from me folks, DO NOT peel a vegetable towards yourself. I never do that, but for some reason I did tonight. And a butternut squash is hard to peel to begin with, so the sheer force I was using made my injury worse than it would have been peeling, say, a cucumber.
Anyway, I immediately stopped cooking, had my taste-tester get us dinner out on his way home (it’s not vegan, although it is vegetarian)… but at the point that we were making dinner choices, my thumb hurt too much to care. I was just glad to have dinner brought to me so that I could avoid sharp objects for a few hours. 😕
We’ll see how my thumb feels in the morning, as to what I will be preparing next… currently the bleeding has stopped but my thumb is quite swollen. Luckily the pain has subsided. Although, my chagrin will last a few days.
Until next time…
