Spoon Feed Me...


So, lately I've got spoons on the mind, from Heather's new tea towels, to Lady Di's great find, to my husband cooking me dinner and asking "Where's the wooden spoons?" and my sheepish reply of "We don't have any." I feel as though my life is is not quite full without these wooden spoons, being that everyone else seems to have a fabulous collection and I have not one.

Ebay, as always, has the cure to what ails me. A spectacular array of spoons for sale from ebay seller winningtreasures. I'm pondering whether I should actually buy them, or simply frame the picture. ;) Enjoy!

You should buy them and stick most of them in a shadow box and just use the flat paddle in the middle. I have its twin and 99% of the time it's what I reach for. Wonderful. Food doesn't stick in a hollow the way it does with a scooped out spoon, and somehow you can mix better.

You can buy and frame these, or you can use them as counter art. I saw a picture from one of Martha Stewart's homes years ago and she had French, antique crocks filled--and I mean filled--with wooden spoons. It was not only an impressive and tactile piece of display art, they were very useful! Personally, I couldn't survive with just one spoon. I guess my cooking style requires a lot of spoons, because I always have at least one or 2 in the dirty dish pile.

Ooh, more fantastic spoons! I reckon you should start your own collection, slowly but surely adding a new wooden spoon whenever you find a particularly fine specimen. In the meantime, frame the pic - or buy a teatowel ;)

Hey Ms. Jules! Ah, wooden spoons -- you can never have too many. I'd buy them, *and* frame the pic (what a great idea). Just remember to treat them with a little almond or walnut oil (neither will go rancid) once in a while to keep them in fine form. Hope you'll show us what you did (w/either framed pic or spoon display) if you decide to go for it!

Kate, you know, that flat one does look useful. I think my not owning a wooden spoon has something to do with me thinking they look like an amazing breeding ground for bacteria. ;)

Julieta, I do own a few spoons, but none that you'd want to take a picture of. ;)

Heather, what a great idea. Can you do one in black?

Chef Jules, I'm betting you think I forgot about you long ago, but that is not so. Your kitchen has provided me with a challenge, and one that I have been a bit stumped by. But actually, just now, at this very moment, you have inspired as to what to do about your kitchen. Thanks for the tip on the spoons!

Love those wooden spoons! My favorite is also the flat paddle one, which I have been using for many years with no ill effects, so you should try one.
And, since she commented...I've been dying to know, whatever happened with the backsplash in Julietta's beautiful kitchen??? :)
