My Wooden Cutting Board

Observation Blogger

Cutting BoardJust after breakfast, I developed this fascination with my wooden cutting board. This is where I prepare nearly all my food.

The shades of stains,
the mesh of grooves,
the spread of cutting angles
how one side is more indented than the other,
the alluring smell if you snuck a whiff.
I was entranced.
I marveled at it for well over a minute.

Instead in these well-used wooden boards, there is history. I use one side more than the other, slowly sculpting it to become undoubtedly my greatest work of art. The unplayable golf green.

If this bacteria ridden monstrosity doesn’t wet one’s appetite, then nothing will.

  1. I am captivated by your cutting board and must agree, one must be well broken in to be worthy of a good steak.

  2. If there was a culinary museum near by, I’d definitely show it there. You can almost see each layer of bloody steak I’ve put on that baby! If it was any more broken in, it would be house-trained. Thanks for popping in!

    We have a plastic one… I told my wife it just is wrong…she went on and on about the bacteria…. what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

    • I couldn’t agree more on all fronts. Hey Bad, I saw a pretty good 2018 movie last called ‘Leave No Trace’ about a war vet living out in the forest with his daughter. It probably squeaks into my top 10 movies of 2018, but only just. Have a great May day!
