Better than Knife and Fork

One of the delights of being a parent of a young child is getting to cut tiny morsels of food for those growing little tummies. In fact, one of the best things about a night out in my book, is not having to cut someone else’s food. That said, I have been introduced to a fabulous tool to make this job easier – a small pair of scissors. Now, when one of our friends at church first mentioned this little trick, I was doubtful as to its worth. Then she gave me a pair of small scissors in a cute little plastic case, and now I am hooked. We take them everywhere, and when we don’t, we berate ourselves for the extra trouble we’ve caused.
Since we’ve started this trend with our little man, my mom-in-law has mentioned she does the same with many cooking ingredients for dishes. I must say, cutting up a large breast of chicken, does indeed go quite a bit faster with scissors than knife and fork. In fact, I’ve now decided I need a pair of kitchen shears just for this purpose. My friend who orginiated the idea even keeps multiple pairs on hand, just so she’s never without. I think she may be wise to do so.
So there you have it. Works for me. Give it a try, I think you’ll be convinced.
