I don't know what is happening to me, but lately I have been cutting my fingers all the time. I am not sure if my Costa Rica knives are supper dull and my brand new knives in California are supper sharp, but my fingers are cut up. I know I should be more concerned with whats happening to our Earth, but dam I lay in bed at night and think my fingers are killing me. I can hear my friends in Costa Rica telling me, Deby be in the moment and really I am already thinking about tomorrows breakfast. I really have never had great knife skills, my sister does a much better job of it. I am always in a hurry. I really need to slow down before I do cut off a finger. I love this knife but I need to treat it with respect. On to the Mushroom Marsala Sauce, my son Casey gave this wine to me recently so I thought I would put it to good use in a sauce. I love everything in it. Over noodles for me and Chuck will love the Pork Chop. He sure did love this dish. My pork chop picture with noodles didn't make it to my camera.
