Did You Know?

I am horribly petrified of getting salmonella or food poisoning. But only when I cook food for myself. Any piece of chicken you have at my house will be on the dry side. Don’t even bother to ask for a rare steak. It won’t happen. And every piece of meat will have cut marks to make sure it’s not still raw. I even smell the milk every time before I use it. Why am I so worried I’ll get a big swig of sour lumpy, milk?? I mean, it takes weeks for milk to go that bad, right?

The funny thing is I don’t know why I have this fear. I have never been sick by any type of food. And if anyone else cooks it, from a stranger in a restaurant to my own mother, I don’t worry. Yes I look at my food but after that I don’t give it another thought.

Weird, I know.
