Surprising both myself and the naughty pitchfork-wielding Sara that was perking up on my left shoulder, I pushed the trolley right on past. Nothing to see here. Once home I biffed dinner in the oven then involved myself in some real stress relief - pushups and pullups. The upper body workout. My favourite thing!! With two exclamation marks, I am almost convinced. Halo Sara wins. For today.
After all that drama, I finally got around to creating a new form of life in the kitch.

It's quite amazing. I thought my jar would be far too small but as the water leached out, the cabbage diminished in volume. There are four cups of cabbage in this 400ml jar:
I shall now impatiently await the results.
While trying to accelerate the process by speed chopping the cabbage before washing it, I accidentally committed murder. I hacked a poor slug into five bits! Ew. It was completely traumatising. I console myself with the thought that it was a very quick end. I don't know why I feel so bad. I can eat an animal that someone else dispatches, but when it comes to bugs in the produce, I go to any lengths to save them and set them free.
I suffered the guilts over Mr Slimy, but had relatively few issues with roasting up Mr Clucky for dinner. Is anyone else illogical in this way?
