Eating is more than just a way to gain sustenance for my family; it is a path to enjoyment. No wonder than that the meal never tastes as good when the cutlery used does not include the right spoon.
I'm not talking about the level of mishap such as the use of a serving spoon in place of a table spoon. But like most everything we own, my cutlery was passed down from other relatives or bought piecemeal, leading to a mishmash of different designs and sizes in the silverware drawer. There are the spiral handled utensils I bought, the flat square-ended ones I grew up with, and the curved with a spiral pattern ones my husband brought with him when he moved in. Then, there are a few--three in all---perfect spoons that don't belong to any of these sets. They are from my grandmother's house, and sized smaller, as they are old; close almost to a child-sized spoon. But they are just right for me. Woe be to the husband who tries to include any of the other kinds of spoons while setting the table!
But before you feel too badly for him, consider he also has his special spoon with an inlaid handle...and there is only one of them! :)
