Fast forward almost 20 years later. Recently I realized some of my wooden spoons are worn out. I decided to replace them. I either couldn't find them in the stores, or they were cheap made in China that I could tell would not last beyond making one recipe, or they were very expensive/fancier than a plain wooden spoon.
When we were in Tuesday Morning yesterday, Ram's mom asked me if I needed new linens or soap. While we were there she offered to buy me something if I needed it. I turned her down on both of those as we didn't need those, but I asked for wooden spoons. I expected to get a small set of 2 or 3 and get stocked up again. Instead they had a set of 14 bamboo ones. So she bought me a very nice set because that is what they had.
I would say that I have a lifetime supply now, but I know how we go through household items here and I'll just say I'm very well stocked on wooden spoons now. I came home and threw out the old ones, which are probably from when I bought my first house in 1998. I only use wooden spoons for cooking, I don't even use wooden spoons for discipline like Dr. Dobson recommends!
