Word to the wise: When chopping up jalapeños, wear gloves. Even if you think you don't need them. Especially when scraping the seeds out.
Yeah, I was that stupid. I didn't think about it until I took out my contacts. YE-OUCH! I wasn't about to wear my glasses to work this morning, mainly because I can't see so great out of them. I washed my hands in milk and in dishwashing liquid. Didn't work. So, how did I get my contacts in this morning? I used plastic wrap. I put a little bit on my index fingers and got them in.
Needless to say, I will be wearing gloves next time I chop those little suckers!
