Ouch.. my arm

The clumsiness in me strikes again 😦

I started my preparations for dinner and had switched on the oven.. I’m making southern fried chicken with some sweet potato fries and decided I wanted to try them in the oven as opposed to frying them.

Upon taking out the tray I’d forgotten in the oven, I caught my arm on it and burnt myself.

It felt like it happened in slow motion. I didn’t immediately run it under cold water because I thought that it was okay..then some moments after it started burning quite intensely 😦

I currently have my trusty aloe vera gel smothered over the area and am quite proud that this is my first burn!

As you probably remember, I used to burn and injure myself quite a bit because I always felt I needed to do things faster than the speed of light. Thankfully I have slowed down and my injury count has reduced drastically.

I do tend to be more careful these days with what I am doing and make a habit of taking my time more.
The food will wait for me if I wanted to take my time.. I just need to begin to learn to take my time.

Back to cooking!

  1. Absolutely my dear Apple – burns are not fun things so you take care of yourself 🙂

  2. How’s that old song go? Slow down you move too fast, you’ve got to make the morning last…

  3. I love fried chicken, but I hate frying it! The grease, the burns, the mess, not to mention the calories – sometimes, it just doesn’t seem worth it. I’ve tried packaged coating mixes for oven fried chicken, but they never had quite the flavor I wanted. So, after some experimenting, I’ve come up with a way to cook oven fried chicken that’s as flavorful as the real thing.
