Nancy Leson suggested, "Let's talk about our favorite kitchen tools." After a moment's reflection, I realized that one of mine is small, plastic, and cost 89 cents. I use it every day for anything from spreading mayo to filling dumplings – which I roll out with another favorite, the homemade pin I made from a section of broomstick.
You can see both in my right hand in the picture above. That shiny thing in my other hand is something from my drawer of forgotten gizmos. More on that later.
Among Nancy's favorites are her 1930s jadeite salt and pepper shakers, also pictured above. But wait, there's more – with pictures and everything!
