Question: If the silverware had a fight, who would win?
|"Bite" silverware designed by Mark Reigelman.|
Recently Ella has become more interested in helping out with the prep before everyone arrives. I think she believes they'll get here faster if everything is done. So, I've been teaching her to set the table.
About forty-five years ago, my Grandmother Hilfiker taught me a simple little poem to help me remember which side of the plate the knife, spoon, and fork go. It's so simple I've never forgotten it, and still recite it when I set the table. It goes like this:
The silverware had a fight,
The knife and the spoon were right,
so the fork left.
Not super uplifting I know, but I always remember (and now Ella is learning), that the knife and fork go to the right of the plate with the napkin, and the fork goes to the left.
Answer: The knife and the spoon win!
Speaking of silverware...
I'm in love with stamped silverware. I know it's been around a long time, but I find it classic. I found a delightful little shop on Etsy, Beach House Living, that has the most darling words and phrases stamped on silver. Thought I'd share a few of my favorites.
Spring is on it's way, and I can't wait to start growing lots of basil (for a fabulous brushetta recipe I'll share) and rosemary (just because I love the look of it).
Love the cursive stamps used on these.
Special spoons just for ice cream? Oh yes, a must. :)
Just plain sweet. And I love even more that they don't match.
Have a great day!
