There is a dark side to the Fumbling Foodie - a side where weird wacky ideas pop out with no warning.
It all started a few weeks ago when I noticed that I seem to have an affliction known as Spatula Acquisition Syndrome (SAS for short). Then a cable channel showed a parody commercial about a big box store named Spatula City. Then it struck me: The Spatula Museum. If my city can have a Bead Museum, then I see nothing wrong with turning my growing collection of spatulas into an online virtual Spatula Museum.
Exhibit 1 is a Lamson Sharp Backstop Turner from their Pro Walnut Kitchen Tools Collection. I really like this spatula when I am sauteing fish, as the backstop keeps the fish on the spatula during the occasional 'aggressive' shove of the spatula under the fish.
I also like it because it is pretty stiff, making it ideal for those occasions when it is necessary to aggressivly de-glaze the pan.
Heather at Plate It Up! can set you up with one.
I'm gonna be a spatula, spatula, spatula.
I'm gonna be a spatula if you won't marry me
