A few days ago I got the mandoline I ordered from Amazon. I have been making these apple chips for Boogie but because I didn't have a mandoline I was just kind of slicing them as thin as I could. Since she begs me to make them all the time I decided to buy one to make my job a little easier. I'm sure I will find lots of other uses for it as well.
As I pulled the mandoline out of the box I noticed these tiny black things all over everything. On closer inspection I decided they were bugs and quickly took everything to the back yard. I studied them and couldn't see legs but just figured they were dead and their legs were curled under them. Yuck!!
I immediately contacted Amazon for a replacement. I do not need an infestation of bugs. (I'm a little paranoid about these things)
Today I was eating a bowl of granola and gasped as I brought the spoon to my mouth....the same bugs! Oh...wait.....those were the chia seeds I sprinkled on the granola. Of course, then my mind began to play vicious tricks on me. Were they really chia seeds or was I eating bugs?
I decided Amazon can get a chuckle at my expense when they get their "buggy" mandoline back because even if they aren't insects it still seems used and that's gross. Daddy already got quite a kick out of it.
