In lieu of recent events (Mommy burning her thumb on the baking tray), Mr. N thought it would be a good idea to share his “Kitchen Safety Tips.” Unlike Miss A (who often breaks rules 11, 12 and 19), Mr. N is quite concerned about his safety and the safety of others. And he’s often quick to point out when Miss A is violating any of the rules below. Enjoy!
1. Be sure to wear good oven mitts.
2. Kids shouldn’t touch raw meat – and if they do, they need to wash their hands.
3. Be sure to wash your hands before and after cooking.
4. Wash your hands after cracking eggs.
5. Put long hair into a pony tail.
6. Kids should never touch the stove or oven.
7. Don’t touch the dish disposal.
8. Only chop with a sharp knife with a grown-up.
9. Let food cool before sampling.
10. No more than one person on one stool and be careful.
11. No standing on the kitchen table.
12. No climbing on the counters.
13. Be sure to wash the counters before and after cooking.
14. If you spill ice out of the ice maker, pick it up off the floor.
15. Don’t leave cabinets or drawers open or you can bump your head.
16. Make sure food isn’t moldy or expired.
17. Do not put your hands near the inside of the blender.
18. Don’t touch the blade part of a knife.
19. No running in the kitchen.
20. Have fun!

“No more than one person on one stool and be careful.”
Haha, most definitely!
“No running in the kitchen.”
And definitely no “tickle attacks” in the kitchen either. As my wife tells me, they’re a pretty dangerous thing to do when someone is wielding blades and pokey things!
LOL! I got attacked by both kids the other day in the kitchen. I was besides myself – hard to stop them when they’re both going after me! 😉 Darn Mike for giving them my ticklish spots – that’s akin to treason. 😉
Very cute! Number 7 freaks me out. I always have visions of what could happen — yikes!
Thank you for these very important reminders, Mr. N! I needed the reminder to close the cabinet doors and drawers.
I am very good at following rule number 1, but forget that a cast iron pan will stay hot for a loooong time, so I burn myself when trying to put it away, this time with bare hands…. amazing that I’ve done this more than once… or twice! 😉
