This evening we decided to have the other half of the pork joint my Nan cooked yesterday for Sunday roast. (pulled pork baguettes … YES). I started carving the pork up and I could feel my hands beginning to ache so I thought I best put this knife down before I cause some damage to myself (just in case tremors kick in). My better half takes over and is carving it alot better than I was (lets not say that outloud). Im chatting away and all of a sudden my Nan shouts she’s cut her finger, out the corner of my eye I thought I saw her finger flying up in the air (it wasnt it was a piece of pork coated in blood) and then blood squirting out of her finger. Now I dont mind blood but when it comes to it squirting out of where its meant to stay then that is a no go for me, I cant even have a blood test without foaming at the mouth (bit of an exageration), I feel sick and well 9/10 I am sick, then light headed. So I look and then quickly look away from the finger situation, grab some kitchen roll and hand it to her to cover it up. Safe to say we was heading for A&E if this blood wasnt going to stop. So without thinking I say I best get some pork sandwiches made up as we shall be at A&E for the evening. (Well the look on my her face was not very good as you can imagine ).
Luckily her Dad is an ambulance man so we called him he came round and checked it out, turns out A&E was not needed thankfully, pretty deep cut though. So next time your thinking of having a lovely pork baguette for dinner take a miss and get it pre cut and pulled or you might end up with a trip to A&E.
Pork Anyone ?
Peace out !
