In my defence, I'd just like to point out that I was peeling the vegetables because I'd been told to, not because I'm usually in the habit of peeling them. In fact, when I'm cooking I don't peel root vegetables (onions and garlic, yes -- but not most veg), it's just that when I arrived Elfy was peeling spuds and I asked "is there anything I can do?" and she replied "you can carry on with these so I can go and do something else".
When I'm in charge, vegetables don't get peeled. The only badness and wrongness in the previous post which might be my fault is to do with slashing Dickinson and Data, and nothing to do with peeling vegetables.
