teaspoons and cinnamon
I have a large silverware drawer with probably 3 or 4 different sets of flatware in it. If I'm having company for dinner or setting a formal table I will take notice of matching patterns, but in our normal day to day routine we just grab and eat. I thought it was interesting though to take note of the differences in these two spoons. The top spoon is from a set we used when I was growing up in my parent's house. When I got married my mom gave us a few things to start and I still have a spoon or two left. The bottom spoon is from my newest set. Although they are both teaspoons the difference in size is great. I don't know if that says something about the modern design, or how much bigger our bites are these days. hmmm...something to ponder.
I love McCormick's black pepper grinders, but have you seen their cinnamon grinders? I love using it for a really fresh cinnamon taste in recipes, over toast, and in my big bowl of oatmeal in the morning.
