Juan’s Spatula

This post is not about a cookbook, but about my favorite silicone spatula.  Well, not really MY spatula — it’s Juan’s spatula.  I don’t know who Juan is and I hope I don’t ever meet him because I’d feel really guilty.  Juan’s spatula is almost identical to one that I owned except that it has Juan’s name written all over the handle in giant letters. 

I was in culinary school and in my final class when my spatula went missing one night.  My initials were on the handle and I almost successfully made it to graduation without missing a vital kitchen tool (I did lose an Ateco pastry tip in an earlier class, but managed to do without it by using other sizes).  So imagine my sadness when I realized that I lost the one tool that I had been using almost every single day!  I think it was the day after my loss that I came across Juan’s spatula — just sitting there on the floor, underneath my station, with no Juan in sight.  None of my classmates were named Juan, so it didn’t belong to any of them.  So I took this spatula and washed and sanitized it and made it mine.  That was five years ago.  To this day, my husband makes me feel bad by saying how poor Juan must be missing his spatula.  So Juan, if you happen to be reading this, I apologize for taking off with your spatula, but hopefully you’ve become a successful chef and don’t even miss it!

By the way, if you’re interested in obtaining a spatula of your own, you may purchase one at:  http://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-Professional-Heat-Resistant-Scraper/dp/B0000CFO2S/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I15VQFSO16TU32&colid=TGTCZ3K9VPCD

I love this spatula so much that I even posted a review on Amazon.com.  I’m the one named “Funfoodie”.
