Cooking Can Be Dangerous To Your Health

I'm working on prepping tomorrow night's dinner: guacamole, pico de gallo, sauteed shitake and portabella mushrooms for the quesadillas. The pico de gallo needs a jalapeño and an onion chopped. I'm now at the 'can't breath can't see stage'. I'm horribly allergic to the vapours from fresh peppers. The first time I cut up serranos, Nin came home from the store and thought I was in need of medical attention. My face was beet red, my eyes were almost shut, and even two hits from my inhaler couldn't stop me from wheezing. Thankfully, the pico only needs one jalapeño, so I'm only slightly wheezy, and no red face. Then came the onion... argh!! That's where the barely able to see part comes from.

So I'm taking a wine break before I move onto the mushrooms. Figure seeing properly is good when using a knife! And wine breaks are of the good regardless [g]

What's everyone else doing?
