Do you have that problem? I do. Every so often, my kitchen utensils go missing. This has been so after I had help at home.
The most common item lost is the vegetable peeler. It goes missing, no, it should read: "lost for good" every two to three weeks. Now I buy them by the dozen that the uncle at the shop thinks I am in business. My guess is that the helpers forget to set it aside after skinning the vegetables, and wraps and disposes them with the peel. However, they deny it. Where else could it have gone? I never had that problem when I had no help because I consciously put it aside every time after I use it. I would wash and keep it even before I dispose the vegetable peel.
I would say that is not so much of a mystery. The real mystery to me is my missing dessert forks and spoons. Every time before I host guests at home, I have to check that I have sufficient dessert forks and spoons. There is never enough even though everytime there is a sale, I would stock up on these. 10 of each at a time. I really dont understand how they can go walking away on its own, but it is always the case. Cant find any teaspoons or dessert forks.
Tell me: Is there a monster in my house that loves eating kitchen utensils?? Do you have that same monster in your home too?
