Tonight I am going to be making Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs.
Make sure to keep the meat in the fridge until you are ready to use it. I don't want to get food poisoning tonight!
Before we begin cooking, we must make sure to wash our hands, put on an apron, and tie back our hair.
When dealing with meat, it is important to either use a different cutting board, or wash the board in between each use to avoid cross-contamination.
In this recipe, we also deal with garlic. When mincing the garlic, we need to point the knife away from us in order to avoid getting cut. Immediately after using the knife, we should clean it.
Now it is time to put the pasta into the boiling water to cook. We will cover the pot with a lid to keep the steam in the pot. Remember to open the lid away from your face when you check the pasta. This will prevent getting a hot steam facial!
Quick tip: When dealing with the stovetop, remove dangling or loose clothing so that it does not become a fire hazard (catching on the flame).
There are two main ways to put out a grease fire. 1) smother in baking soda 2) put out with fire extinguisher
OH NO! My meatballs caught on fire!!
There was a fire, but if I did not know the proper way to put it out. There would have been a disaster. This just goes to show how important kitchen safety is.
