Bachelor Essentials: Utensil Edition

This New Year's Eve, I made little pigs in a blanket for the party my fiance and his roommate hosted. I made them at their apartment, which required that I went hunting for utensils... and this is what I found:

  • light saber chopsticks (did I mention I'm marrying a nerd?)
  • a crusty slotted spoon from at least the 1970's
  • a titanium, beautifully crafted SPORK (what more do you need in life?)
  • forks with 4 prongs, not 3; (when cutting meat, you put the knife in the middle of the prongs, and if there are 3 then you don't know which side to put your knife through, so I was told)
  • butter knives with serrated edges (they can spread but ALSO cut through bagels)

 Oh yeah. Their pizza cutter (what I was looking for in the first place) was shaped like a bicycle. :)

And there you have the bachelor pad essential utensils. Anyone know if I'm forgetting anything? It was highly amusing to go through their kitchen; I think the light saber chopsticks were my favorite.


  1. hahaha that's awesome. When I was getting my wedding registry ready, I asked my then-fiance-now-hubby what kitchen supplies he already had that I wouldn't need to register for. He replied, "I have everything." Well, I decided to check things out for myself. Turns out he had one very small cookie sheet, plastic silverware, plastic cups, and four plates. Which is everything, right? Gotta love guys!

  2. Haha, that's the SAME THING Scot told me: "I have everything." Oh dear. At least now I know what I need to put on our registry... everything. :)

  3. Bicycle pizza cutter! I want it!
