Ingredientsia

Today’s Daily Prompt:

What’s the one item in your kitchen you can’t possibly cook without? A spice, your grandma’s measuring cup, instant ramen — what’s your magic ingredient, and why?

The stove? Is that an okay answer? I know, I know, all that it’s your blog it’s your space you do you nonsense.

But–no. The issue I have with this prompt is that I cook so many, many different things. Not everything needs a spoon, or butter, or lemon juice, or chocolate chips, or even salt

Some weeks a bowl is essential.

Some days I need foil.

At all times I need comestibles, but that’s a given.

Maybe I should just pick salad fork. I don’t reach for whisks, normally. I don’t mix with a dinner fork. Just now, when I needed a tablespoon of butter, I retrieved a salad fork from the silverware drawer. 

Yes. A salad fork. I’ve always been partial to them. They’re so diminutive and cute. And useful, to boot. 

Salad fork.

I used to eat everything with a salad fork. Except cheese. That’s knife and fingers.

    I agree tgatthat this is a bit of an odfodd prompt. I think I’d be tempted to say olive oil. It’s in almost all my recipes.
