One of my favorite hobbies is cooking, as I love food!!!!!!! From preparing new recipes to making delicious everyday meals for my family, cooking makes my heart very happy. Being disabled has definitely changed the way I cook, and now when I prepare meals, I have to put a great deal of thought and effort into each dish. Probably the biggest concern for me in my kitchen is, SAFETY! The kitchen is filled with hazards for anyone, but chopping, slicing, and dicing can be very problematic when your hands are constantly shaking.
That being said, I’ve changed the way I do things in my kitchen. I’ve realized that sharp knives were not the best choice for me, so I purchased a food chopper. Now I’m am able to chop vegetables without a painful and expensive trip to the first aid kit, or worse the emergency room.
I’ve also change the way I fry food. Working with a pan filled with hot oil and shaky hands would be a very foolish choice, so I joined the ranks of the air fryer movement. I can whip up fried chicken or any number of delectable treats without the risks associated with frying in hot oil, and the clean up is non existant.
As the years tick by, I’m sure there will be many other adjustments I have to make. Because I love to cook (and keep my fingers), changes I will make.
With that being said, what adjustments have you made in your kitchen to keep putting out the goods, and keeping the goods?
