John Legend and Chrissy Teigen may be the perfect couple. They have an adorable baby, cool friends, lots of public sex, and they do everything together—even maiming themselves. In a story she told to Elle, Teigen describes how both she and John Legend fell victim to a dish of scalloped potatoes.
She says one night she was making her favorite dish and demanded her hubby help. She explains, “I gave John the task, and within the first three swipes, he cut the tip of his finger clean off. He refused medical attention because of whatever was happening at that point in the game, so I told him to go sit and let me 'show him how it's done.' First swipe—first!—I sliced off the exact same finger tip. We have a great photo of us both at the urgent care center."
This story almost seems like weird sponsored content for scalloped potatoes, but I don’t think the spud industry can afford a spokeswoman like Teigen. She did say, “It's my ultimate comfort food. I love it. It makes people so happy.”
So happy she’d cut her fingers off to make it. And her husband’s.
