I do store meat in plastic containers but am very careful about wiping down the counters and using different cutting boards if I am dealing with chicken for sure. Of course I remember the days when no one had individual cutting boards. All we had was one which usually was built in and pulled out just below the sink. Somehow we all survived.

When I got home, I called the store and asked to speak to the deli manager. Guess what, SHE was the manager. (I could tell by the accent)

I told her what I thought of the practice and she apologized. I never went back there to buy deli food.
This is nasty.

A bit off topic but my state "banned" straws recently. You can still get them but you have to ask. They can't just give them to you without asking. I was at a sit down restaurant and asked for a straw. The lady pulled one out of her apron holding it tightly in the palm of her hand (probably hand touching 1/2 the straw) and stuck it in my drink. Now I'm drinking whatever she has got going on on her hand.

Along with whatever germs, crumbs and lint she had in her apron pocket. UGH!

The worse thing to do is, complain, then sitdown for a meal. Not a good idea, to upset the person cooking your meal.

Unwrapped straws? Ew.



I don't use straws for the most part. Only time I will is if I get a Big Gulp or something that I'm going to have in the car when i'm driving.

Ever seen those straw dispensers where you press down and it gives you a straw? How many hands touch all over that and your unwrapped straw comes out.. I'm no germaphobe, but that's just nasty.

I am curious.. is your state one that's gone to the 'paper' straws? I've heard alot of complaints that they're turning soggy before people finish their drinks.

Some cities are banning plastic straws in Florida. Straws will now have to be biodegradable.

This is me, pretty much. I have a good solid cutting board that I leave out on my island. I use it for veggies and sometimes for cooked meats. I recently bought two resin boards for raw meat which are dishwashable.

I do use the same chef’s knife on both boards, but I thoroughly wash and rinse the knife, blade and handle, between uses. Also, I do not rinse chicken before cooking, which is the latest recommendation from the sanitary police.

Also, I understand that cooked ground meat should not be eaten undercooked, because if it is contaminated, the contaminants will likely be throughout the meat. With chicken or roast, bacteria will be on the surface, and cooking, roasting, or searing will kill those bacteria.

But now, my big resin board will not fit into my new dishwasher! So I need to find a less large board, because I want to wash it that way.

At any rate, I do try to be safe as I prepare food.
