I am a Fruit Spoon....
you don't typically see me on your table,
but when you do you're glad I'm there.
I am a spoon because I hold everything inside of me.

I am a baked potato fork, today at least -often mis or little understood, but by few the perfect balance and just about rightness emerge as obvious.

Pickle fork. I'm the one you turn to when you're in a pickle.

I would like to be the cooking spoon, that big one
That sees each of our sauces
And spends so little time in a drawer.

Yes, the lemon fork has a steady base but also offers a multitude of directions for the prongs. That's me in a nutshell. Oh, maybe I should have picked the nutcracker.

I just received 2 carved wooden spoons from my friend.
"A handmade engagement gift," she said,"To feed each other with."
"To feed each other with," I said to my love as we stood in the dark of my bedroom last night.
His eyes grew wide with delight as we held the spoons up to each others' mouths.
I released air rich with love and laughter and sweetness into his mouth.
He released air full of kindness and companionship and ease into mine.
I am a… Continue

I am definitely a cocktail fork. A proper cocktail has several essential benefits. It contains many of the critical food groups: grain, fruit, water (is that a food group? It's a good thing, I know that). And I am a very health-conscious person. Cocktails are very social - throw a few into the mix and you've got a lively party. I love a good party. They can turn an introvert into a crazy dancer (hello??!!!). Plus a cocktail makes you feel good. I subscribe to: if it feels good, do it. I'm not… Continue

I am most definitely a decorative wooden spoon as found in most Russian households. For those of you who have never seen one before, they are of various size and assortments but are always made of wood and usually hand painted. The vast majority of people overlook this utensil. They see it as unnecessary as it has no use, nor is it very attractive. However, to the discriminating eye, this is a brilliant piece of beautiful artwork. It is also quite wonderful for sipping hot tea or soup as unlike… Continue

I'm a slotted spoon. At first glance, you go, wait, slots on a spoon? Stuff falls through! (That's true. I can't deny that. Lots of stuff falls through.) That's why slotted spoons are undoubtedly the underdogs of the spoon family. But sometimes they come from behind. Sometimes you could really use a slotted spoon.

I am a coke spoon...
(or I was when I was twenty...).

I’d say I am definitely a steak knife. Nothing makes me happier than making that first cut through a big juicy filet mignon cooked just a little under medium rare. It’s also a good tool for cutting through all of life’s bullshit…metaphorically speaking.

I am a matching set of large, durable, bourgeois salad fork and spoon,
carved of some sweet-smelling, exotic yet sustainable wood (like mango),
and fond of "mixing things up."
Sometimes my fork-like qualities come to the fore:
stabbing commentary, criticism, ingratitudereminiscent of Lear's line:
"how sharper than a serpent's tooth is an ungrateful child."
Sometimes my spoon-like qualities are in evidence:
the capacity to empathize, nurture,… Continue

I think I am a fork. My hair is forever a mess and prickly like a fork. My head is relatively huge compared to the rest of my body, (no joke). And even though I am pretty useful at ending slippery slopes (like a fork is to pasta) I have an edge.

the spork embraces its between-ness, defies easy categorization, and finds strength in its humble beginnings. the spork stands as a reminder that sometimes our cognitive categories are just not rich enough - or flexible. in short, the spork serves up some pretty yummy food for thought.

Unlike a knife with its sharp blade or a fork with its pointy tines, a spoon probably has the least capacity of the three to harm others. A spoon works perfectly for soft ice cream or soothing soup ... I function well when life is smooth and easy. A spoon is all but useless for cutting a tough piece of meat ... I am rendered immobile when times are difficult and stressful.

I am a gravy ladle because I am laying it on thick. I add the calories that you always forget to count. I am the enabler of the sopping up of everything heavy that lands on your plate. I am a gravy ladle.
