Since the weather has been so humid, the salt shaker performance leaves much to be desired. So, we have kept the table salt in a small black clay bowl I brought back from Colombia.
While having scrambled eggs this morning I thought of painting it in watercolor and doing some kitchen art after breakfast. In the process, I remember a conversation I had with my late mother-in-law one night while we were preparing a meal together.
“The best invention for the kitchen is garlic” I said.
“I think the best invention is salt”, she responded.
She was right. Human beings have not waged wars over garlic but they have over salt.
I ate my scrambled eggs without garlic, but couldn’t have eaten them without salt!
What about you, what do you think is the best invention for the kitchen?
