The first rule when using a mandolin is USE THE FINGER GUARD!
I am so excited to have Mike home. I can cook for someone who loves to eat. I love with food. I used to laugh at Sofia and tease that food is her love language. If you feed her, you will get a hug and a few I Love You's. Now, my motto has become, "Come in, sit down and be loved" I love to feed my friends and family. I hope they love to eat as much as I love to feed!
Back to the rules...practice probably makes perfect. Had I used this thing more than once I may have remembered how important the finger guard really is! It is okay if you have to throw out part of the veggie to save your fingertips. Should you choose a life of crime, fingerprint-less fingers would come in handy.
