Ten Thousand Spoons, When All You Need Is a Knife...

Literally. Have a look into our utensil drawer! I'm not kidding when I say that we have twice as many teaspoons as we have forks or knives or dessert forks or steak knives. In fact, we have so many teaspoons that the utensil holder can no longer hold all of the spoons in the designated spoon area anymore.

How did this happen? I only use teaspoons to stir skim milk into my tea. Hubbs only uses it when he eats cottage cheese at home, and usually a) he doesn't eat it at home, and b) he uses the big tablespoons to eat his cottage cheese.

So where did these little teaspoons come from? Did they "spoon" and reproduce in our drawer? One of life's unsolved mysteries.

If you guys are like us, you inherited some of your dishes and utensils from parents and other family members. I guess your inheritances were overly heavy in the spoon category.

And it doesn't get any better. We now have two separate drawers for our spoons, forks, and knives.
