Bury me with my spoon?

I have a remarkable stout and stubborn metal spoon.  This spoon stirs up the stiffest dough, manhandles any meat, sautes the veggies and plays drums on the pots and pans.  My mom gave me this spoon and I only wish I knew where she got it so long ago.

I would have you bury me with it.  The great-grandchildren could all stand around me and remark on Granny and her spoon, but it would be a waste to put a spoon like that 6 feet under.

In this day and age of disposable $1000 kitchen appliances, I humbly present to you,

The Sturdy Spoon.

May you find one, too.


About onlifeandbeans

I like to make the adventure taste good by cooking tasty, wholesome food. Most of what I've learned in cooking, I've picked up from cookbooks and lots of practice. (Thank you, Fannie Farmer, for the right start. ) I so appreciate cookbooks that tell how and why to do something; that's why I do the same for my readers. I want to know what is in my food. I want my family to sit down and share a meal together. I want our food to taste good. Home-cooking takes time, but it gives back rich dividends in budget minding, good health and familial love. One meal at a time.
