Utensil/Gadget Appreciation – Apple slicer

When I was still working as an English tutor at an after-school institution I often look for this particular utensil, an apple slicer. The kids love munching on apples and we are provided about 50 or more apples a day for each group composed of 20 kids! One can't really finish an apple in one sitting so what I would do is slice them. It would be too much of a job using a knife so I'm really grateful to whoever invented this piece...with just one downward motion you get precise slices and you can remove the core easily...

I can stay around such a place for a whole day if I can! The kids share the same sentiment with me. They could spend long hours outside picking flowers and stones, look for bugs and sit on those greens. Dandelions and lawn daisies are the most common weeds one would find in abundance at the backyard when spring comes. It's so fun that after having mowed, they grow in two days again...another chance for photography. I also like decorating the house with plants ...
