Grill Brush Danger

The grill is the domain of men in most households. It is the same in my family with my husband and late father-in-law.

A few years back, my husband did as what he normally does by using the grill brush to clean the grill before cooking.

During dinner, I felt something poking me inside my mouth while I was chewing a piece of meat. Fortunately, I was able to get it out in time. It turned out to be a piece of bristle out of that grill brush.

Before this incident, we saw some shared post on social media that some people swallowed this piece and got to have emergency surgery.

None of us believed that until this happened to me.

Obviously, we immediately stopped using any grill brush. So far, we were not able to find something similar, but safe in the market yet.

Here is what we have been doing since that incident.

After a thorough cleansing of the grill, we wrap a piece of foil on the grid. You still get the beautiful grill marks. The foil is discarded every time after one use.

If you guys know any better method or tool to replace the regular grill brush, share with me.

Fun Culture

The Chinese words above represent Lychee. There is no simplied Chinese writing of these 2 words.

In Cantonese, it is pronounced as "Lai Chi". In Mandarin, it is called "lizhi".

It is an exotic fruit. In ancient China, Lychee was exclusively for royalty only. Even though you can find it in Southeast Asia nowadays, it is very seasonal and expensive.

There is a Chinese saying, "It's time to enjoy Lychee when the cicadas sing."

It grows on trees. The fruit itself has a layer of very thin red skin which is hard, very similar to the texture of an avocado. The flesh is white, close to the texture of a grape. In the middle of it is a small pit. The smaller the pit, the better it is.

During off season, Lychee fans can enjoy Lychee-flavored soft drinks and ice-cream. Canned Lychee is not very common in the Asian societies though. (Click here for MORE Subscriber Exclusive Fun Culture related to this newsletter)
