Pedestrian? Perhaps. But I, for one, can't imagine life without knives, spoons, and forks.
How would we feed babies without spoons? Cut into a perfectly done T-bone without a knife? Swirl fettuccine Alfredo onto a spoon and into our mouths without benefit of fork tines?
Life without cereal? Finger foods forever? Messy hand-held surf-n-turf? I'm so grateful for flatware.
What are you thankful for today?
