Today’s subject in the March Foodie Photo-A-Day Challenge is “kitchen”. Well, as soon as I think of my kitchen, my mind immediately goes to my favorite bowl. This bowl was given to me by my mother-in-law a few years ago. The bowl originally belonged to my mother-in-law’s aunt. Now put this into perspective. My mother-in-law will turn 86 in May. This bowl belonged to her aunt. I can’t begin to guess how old this beautiful bowl can possibly be. It must have been loved in order to be passed down.
Imagine the bazillion number of goodies that were mixed up in this bowl! The cakes, the cookie batters and the mashed potatoes. There are indentations on the bottom of the bowl from the wooden spoons scraping against it. I love the small cracks, the weathered surface and each and every knick or ding. I sometimes imagine my mother-in-law using it as a young bride in her kitchen. It’s just another of my possessions that brings a smile to my heart. I absolutely love it.
Isn’t it beautiful? I am so very lucky to be the 3rd generation to own this kitchen treasure.
