What a mess! I overfilled the bowl. Again. And now half the stuff has fallen onto the floor and I have to observe the five-second rule. What a lucky dog I have! And I’m lucky to have her around to clean up my mess.
When I make a salad I like to put all of the ingredients into the bowl, and then stir it up with the tongs. Or a fork and spoon. Lettuce on the bottom. Then add mushrooms, green peppers, maybe some carrots and onions. Garbanzo beans too. I like garbanzo beans. Throw on a little shredded cheese and there you have it. Salad.
But it’s gotta be tossed, mixed up, to really be good. Sol, I stick the tongs, or whatever utensil I’m using, into the bowl and start stirring. If I do it real slowly and with great precision, I can avoid spilling all the stuff. But usually I’m hungry and just reach in and start tossing. And spilling. Maybe I should put less into the bowl to begin with. Nah…
IN some outdoor type catalog I saw this thing to use for making ice cream. The old fashioned way involves a churn. Electric if you’re lucky. But this new thing is a ball and you put the ingredients inside, roll it all around, and there you have it- ice cream. That’s what I need for my salad. Put in all the stuff and roll it around.
Not sure I really want to eat if after rolling it around on the floor though. Wait. Better idea. I can’t claim this as my own original thought though. Put all the stuff into a Tupperware bowl, seal on the cover, and shake the stuffing out of it! Perfect.
What does James Bond say? Shaken, not stirred. Sounds good to me!
