|Guido. Kitchen elf extraordinaire.|
Tonight I made the stuffing and a creamy crab soup. I used my favorite Karen Davis wooden spoons and a variety of lovely handmade ceramic bowls (ok, except for that blue plastic one in the photo. It's the biggest bowl I have.) These handmade items I use everyday... they're like friends. I love that they don't match and that each one reminds me of where I bought it. Maybe I was able to meet the potter. Maybe the artist is a friend... someone I admire. Maybe it's one of mine. They all make working in the kitchen pure joy!
And then there's Guido. Tonight he came in as I finished washing dishes, and he popped into the sink (he only likes a clean sink, thank you very much.) There he kept me company... the picture of serenity. Life is good.
