Recently, I latched onto this little nine-inch chopping block.
Actually, it has been stored in our garage for a few years, but originally it was in my mother-in-law's kitchen. I remember her chopping anything and everything on it preparing for many meals. (She never heard of bacteria-contaminated cutting boards! She is now 100 years old and her children are 75, 78, and 81 -- guess it didn't hurt.) Her father, Grandpa Bloyd, had made the board from salvaged walnut and apple wood.
Now, it has a future in our kitchen.
It elevates anything ordinary ---
Serves as a frame for a garden bouquet ---
Or, simply, is a reminder of family history.
For now, I must go roast those tomatoes to put in the freezer for use in winter soups. I always think the tomatoes will never ripen on the vine; then I wonder what I'm going to do with all of them!!
