Ode to my favorite kitchen utensils

As I was cooking dinner tonight I realized that I have two go to utensils in my kitchen. These are the two I use pretty much every time I cook. I really believe I could throw away all the others in my kitchen drawer and do fine with these two.

First is the black plastic skimmer. I use this for everything from straining vegetables to a makeshift colander to draining canned beans or vegetables. I love this spoon and couldn’t live without it.

Second is the wooden spatula. I love this for sautéing, stir-frying, scraping; you name it. It’s great for scramble eggs, browning meat and stirring stews.

What’s your favorite utensil?

Mine is a plastic spatula and tongs that I use for turning meat, chicken etc. I use those the most!
