GherkinGate™ Story
I decided to make a salad for lunch & I was trying to open a large jar of Gherkins, but I couldn't get it open because I have a broken arm & I can't use to much force, because if I did my arm might fall apart. So as one does when they are not of sound mind I shouted "Fuck you Gherkins!! Fuck you!!" Then went off to the living room & sulked whilst being mean to my boyfriend online. I then went back to the kitchen because it was gone 3pm & my hunger had reached a new level, ran the gherkins under hot water like a form of torcher before trying to release the lid again, but nothing. So I stepped the heat up, steam began to rise, the moment becoming more intense. I put my hand on the hot lid, gripped it with all my right handed mite & turned it...POP! Finally juicy Gherkin goodness. Then whilst chewing on a good bit of gherkin I thought ooh that's what I'll put on my lettuce sitting lonely in a bowl, and so GherkinGate salad was born. It was very tasty, but make sure you've got a nice warm surrounding before eating it. It's comforting but you may need to team it with a good brew!
