LOL!! Thanks - I've developed a tolerance. Since I was a little kid - we stole raw bits of hamburger from mom's dinner preparations....never ever a
problem. At least 50 years, that means.....I've been stealing bites of raw hamburger whenever possible.
We also licked the spoon and the spatula and the mixer beaters and even the bowl!! Raw brownie mix!!! Raw eggs, powdered mix, oil,
water.........same for cake .....
"want to lick the bowl?"
And the other thing - so toxic I should be insane by now....mimeographed paperwork - the fluid was like sublime heaven!!!
Oh wow. Dee Lish Ussss...
Teacher would come in with an armload of freshly mimeographed handouts - some silly quiz or writing-practice worksheet - paper still as warm as fresh
bread.....aroma as heavenly as the same ..... the blue butter of the mimeograph process was the secret ingredient.....
I can still imagine that high right now!!!! You guys, right?! Who knows the smell of fresh mimeograph handouts???? Weren't they the elixir of grade
school?????? 1960s and 70s.....
ETA: Yet I still handle raw chicken only when outfitted in hazmat accessories ....
oh, and pork makes me nervous,too - never ever put it on wooden cutting boards!!!......keep the tap pre-heated and plenty of dish-soap on hand.
Bleachy wet-wipes are handy as well......
Best and most germ-free method:
Get out your baking dish and whatever cooking things you want: red wine or oil or pesto or soy sauce or curry or broth or bbq or salsa...whatever.
Choose your style and set out the ingredients.
Put on food-handlers gloves. With dominant hand, open the package of chicken or pork by tearing the plastic. Overturn the styrofoam tray or packing
plate and allow the meat to fall into the baking dish. Drop the styrofoam tray into the trash, then carefully peel off the glove that was holding the
tray with the other (still sterile) glove. Then drop that one into the trash as well.
I used to be like that.....
now I actually sometimes rub seasonings in with my bare fingers!!!!
They want us to stay hysterical. Don't give in!!!!!!!!!!!!!
