Fun at Work

"Is there anything else we can shred?" the boys asked.  Did you ever wonder if technology might sometimes take away tactile satisfaction?  With a small kitchen of limited counter space, I don't have nor want a big food processor.  Instead, I have an old fashioned hand-crank Mouli-Julienne grater.  I pulled it out yesterday to make zucchini bars, and although they shredded enough for my recipe, the boys kept shredding. 

Perhaps we are becoming an obese nation because we can in less than a minute shred a gallon of zucchini and return to the TV and couch.  Perhaps a bit of manual shredding is in order.

I used to have a shredder exactly like yours, made potato pancakes for you when you were a kid!
