~ Bloody Peach Cobbler ~

Varmint is learning life-skills.

Today’s skill was how to stop hemorrhaging.

Well, it didn’t start out that way.  Actually it started out that I was teaching her how to make a peach cobbler.

First she cut her thumb.

Then she cut the crease between her second and third fingers.  (You KNOW how hard that kind of cut is to put a bandage on.)

I finally let her stop yeilding the paring knife when we couldn’t distinguish between the peach juice and the blood.

And then we added a bunch more lemon juice and sugar to cover up any odd flavoring in the cobbler.  You KNOW how the iron flavor of blood can just ruin a cobbler.  I’m pretty sure Martha Stewart covers that in one of her very first cookbooks.

So I guess we can add ‘Camouflaging the taste of blood in food’ to our list of life skills practiced today.

Cobbler, anyone?
