Merry Christmas and Happy New Year little Veggie Chopper
When out of the dishwasher there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the kitchen I flew like a flash,
Tore open the cabinets in a dash,
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature veggie chopper in all it‘s glory,
With a little old blade and a pull cord, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be MY FAVORITE KITCHEN TOOL of ‘09
More rapid than her cousin the knife, her courses they came
And she whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, chef‘s knife! now, Santoko! now, ulu and paring!
On, chopper! on mandoline! on, salad chopper and slap chopper!
To the top of the dishwasher to the top of the counter
Now chop away! chop away! chop away all!”
I am her favorite kitchen tool for 2009!
Nuts are a whiz in this little chopper. Pull about 8-10 times and you have minced nuts. And just think of the muscle you are building in your arms.
Mushrooms fresh or canned chop up quick and easy in my favorite little friend.
Black olives are chopped in about 3-4 pulls. So much faster than using a knife.
I promise to try and not talk about this little tool so much this year but thumbs up for my favorite new tool for 2009.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. And Happy New Year!
