In my previous blog I started about the aids that I use. This is a response from someone who had no clue about the support system in my life, he thought I was marvelous and so independent. I thought I'd write a bit about these supports.


Sunday is my only day off now that I ve started a market stall. But it means I have sometime to do a bit of cooking. J, my PA (personal assistant) helps me. She does the chopping up and cooks the rice in the rice cooker. Today I made stuffed flat mushrooms.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7015/6824403809_7dca9d661a_m.jpg  Stuffed Mushroom recipe:


Ingredients: 2 cloves garlic, 2 big flat mushrooms, 1/2 lb minced pork or beef, 1 egg, 1 table spoon soya sauce, freshly ground black pepper


Chop up the garlic. you can add some spring onions of you have some. Add to minced pork  or beef with an egg. Stir it well add soya sauce. Spread on the mushroom. Grind black pepper on top. Drizzle some oil over it.Put it into a heated oven on highest mark. Cook about 25-30 minutes. Check to see if its thoroughly cooked.


Now I should tell you of the clever gadgets I use in my kitchen. But for this dish I did not really use many except for the 'coolhands' to take the dish out of the oven. I am careful when taking things out of the oven/cooker.


The gadgets I have at hand in my kitchen to help me are the Dyceum jar opener, and the Culinare One Touch electric can opener. The Dyceum jar opener has a secure grip for easy twist off. The Dycem Moulded Cone Jar and Bottle Openers provides a soft, secure grip when opening safety caps and childproof lids. The elecric can opener is a life saver especially when I am on my own and too tired to prepare any food. Tuna fish salad with sweet corn is a life saver meal. My friend uses hers to open tinned food for her cat. It saves her from having to deal with messy lids.


Donna who volunteers at the stall says she finds the Easy grip spoon and fork really helpful for her as well.

Here they mentioned about helpful tools in the kitchen, and jar opener is included. I agree, because there are times that it is hard to open a jar and very time consuming.
