Xmas Gift Idea – Chocolate Spoons

chocolate spoonsI know you don’t want to hear this, but it’s coming. You can’t stop the slow advance,  it will suddenly be upon you. Christmas, is indeed, coming to town. Your only way to escape it’s ravages is to begin preparations now. And a classic recipe involving cutlery is the chocolate spoon. The recipe is simple but the variations and applications are almost infinite. I don’t like mine with sprinkles as I like to stir it into my “magic Xmas coffee”, so I prefer it to be dusted with cinnamon. Great gift idea and special treat for breakfast on Christmas morning.

Halloween Pumpkin Carving Tools

318Nq1keQoLIt’s that time of year again to carve pumpkins into scary shapes and faces. In our house it was done with a fish filleting knife that no child should have their gourd guts covered mitts on. Wired’s Gadget Lab goes almost Steampunk with their choice to review this brass and walnut handled carving set. It’s a little over the top but they make a good point that after Halloween it can be used for more than just pumpkins.

Flying cutlery from Air France

airfrance560I spent a lot of my childhood on trains and the conductor would always give us cool cardboard trains to assemble. I never flew on an airline until I was an adult and was disappointed I didn’t get a set of pilot wings (which I hear they don’t give to children anymore). But now Air France has had the idea to make cutlery that can be assembled into toy planes. I can see a whole mess of problems with this. Child won’t eat because they want to play with cutlery plane. Child eats and then has food soiled toy plane. And the best one is that it’s all fun and games till someone loses an eye because of a flying fork.

Glow in the Dark Cutlery

Glow Cutlery

This stuff looks pretty cool. I’m not sure how sturdy it is, there is always a problem with plastic utensils. But I’m convinced that it would be the ultimate cutlery for Dining in the Dark. My big concern would be to not break the handle and accidently season my food with biohazardous glowing goo. If anything, you’ll never have a problem finding your spoon under the table if you drop it.
