こんばんは！How’s it going?
Today in Austin, the wind was crazy! I was expecting for some of our older wooden fences to come down, but I think they survived. We really should get them replaced but I think we’ll hold out as long as we can.
The photo for today is of our shelf where we keep a bunch of our eating utensils – mainly our はし (chopsticks) and wooden spoons. We have a regular kitchen drawer where we keep our regular forks, spoons, and knives, but I prefer to use はし whenever I can, and instead of metal spoons, I like to use wooden spoons.
To me, wooden utensils make the food taste better because there’s no metallic tang that comes with regular silverware. Plus wooden utensils feel better on the lips, mouth, and tongue. Really!
One drawback is that the wooden utensils can’t go into the dishwasher since the extreme heat can damage them, but that’s a small price to pay for a more natural eating experience, IMHO.
If you only have metal eating utensils, why not get a set of wooden utensils and give them a try? You might just become a convert like me.
I hope you had a nice Sunday and a fantastic weekend!
