Vince brought in a tote the other day that had silverware and a huge variety of other stuff in it. Almost every box or container I unpack has a treasure that I’ve halfway been looking for. This morning I told him I’d work on that tote of silverware til I found my grapefruit spoons and then I was done unpacking for the day . . only because he had already declared today and tomorrow to be days of rest . . except we’re going to cook and eat at home. This morning when I went to fix breakfast, he asked if I needed help. Vince! Offered to help cook. I think having to fix his own meals for a while did him some good!
I use my grapefruit spoons all the time but rarely for grapefruit! When I was making twice baked potatoes last week, I missed them so much because that’s what I use to scrape the potato out of the shell but they weren’t here yet. I did find the grapefruit spoons so I stopped unpacking but I will empty that tote before the day is over and get it out of the house.
Almost all the silverware from Texas is in the dishwasher. Since we had several sets when we had two houses in Kentucky and since I had bought a set for the apartment in Nevada, MO, we’ll always have a bunch of mismatched silverware. If we are having company and I care that it matches, which I probably never will, I have plenty of each set but also, with just the two of us, there are lots of times that all the forks or spoons are dirty and the dishwasher still isn’t full so I’m very happy to have plenty of silverware, even if it doesn’t all match.
I love the Rada knives and if it were up to me, I’d get rid of everything except Rada. My knives had all been thrown in a drawer . . potato peeler, paring knives all mixed with the butcher knives. I’m happy to have them all separated again.
Now I can cross stitch til time to cook dinner!
