Grandpa Pencil Looks at Cooking With Fruitflies Now with the 'Almost Everything' conversion Calculator
Before we begin cooking it is essential that we do everything right so we don't hurt ourselves so here are a few hints to help you on your way. Please be safe and have fun.
Always make sure that your Fruit Fly asks the permission of an adult before starting.
Be sure that the fly thoroughly washes All of his hands, dries them well and cleans his fingernails
He should put on a clean apron and cap to keep the gunk out of his hair.
It might be a good idea, especially if you are using raisins, if your Fruit Fly wears a yellow or orange floaty jacket.
When using electric mixers or other appliances be sure that your Fruit Fly has no loose clothing that might get caught. They get very dizzy going around in the beaters.
Never let your Fruit Fly carry any heavy or hot things and never ever let him put things into, or take them out of, the oven.
Never let your Fruit Fly put his fingers in the toaster or power point.Your Fruit Fly should never put his finger in the mixing bowl to have a taste. He should always use a spoon and wash it before tasting again.
You should be quite stern if your Fruit Fly mucks around with sharp or hot things. It is very dangerous.
Make sure that your fruit fly washes all bowls, saucepans, spoons, knives and cutting boards before doing another job to stop the yikky bugs.
