I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE: I’M AFRAID OF THE VEGETABLE GRATER. I have Gratophobia.
I know, it’s silly. It’s true. I avoid grating anything. I leave it as the last task in the kitchen. I have been known to bribe others, namely my niece and nephew to grate things on my behalf. Or I use the grating attachment on my food processor.

I have clear memories of barbeque season. You see, growing up, we lived in a city with scorching summer heat — barbequing was a necessity. It was a newfangled way to spend time, especially with the cousins, aunts, and uncles always dropping by on weekends. My parents were consummate hosts, so using our backyard for entertaining, helped break up the monotony. I have to give them credit for trying their best to emulate Canadian traditions (within reason) – they wanted us to experience some form of Canadian normalcy.
