|Ew, eww, ewww!|
Thankfully, it doesn't occur too often, but when it does, I find a way to deal with it. I call up friends, let them know what I'm doing, and they help distract me (distraction is a HUGE help). It's a great system.
I decided to make some potatoes for this Shabbos and I cringed when I found that they had sprouted. Okay, no big deal, I'll call a friend and cut them up as I chat. Unfortunately, my phone needed to be charged, so I realized that wasn't really an option.
Deep breath. I can do this. It's just a potato. Why does it gross me out so much? I had music playing, so I chose to focus on that as I washed, peeled and chopped them all up. I did it! I know it's absurd, but it was a small victory for me (yay!).
Coincidentally, as the potatoes were going in the oven, the brownies needed to come out. I took that as a sign :-) Homemade brownies fresh from the oven are amazing!
