I've written before about the joys of working with my grandmother in her kitchen. When Gran was preparing potatoes for making fries (known as chips in Scotland) she would keep me involved by first peeling and slicing the potatoes then letting me chop them into wavy fries using a chopper much like this one. A kid can use this pretty easily two-handed and it's safer than using a knife. I was always delighted not only to be involved in preparing the meal, but to be making the chips look extra special!
Now, I'm not giving away the veggies to the lucky winner. Just the cutter. The veggies are going into the soup for my family today. To be entered in the drawing just leave a comment. If you want to spread the word through your blog, or by some other means, you can have an extra entry. Enter by midnight Central Standard Time on Tuesday, March 31st, 2009. I will announce the winner next Wednesday.
