tongs ta-tongs ta-tongs

It never fails that when the carnivore and I have friends and family over for dinner we are still cooking when they arrive. And inevitably while I am still rushing around to finish a meal I grab some gadget or another that makes a guest ooh and aah. Most of the time it is something that I have had for years and no longer even consider something novel, but instead a necessity. These spaghetti tongs fall in that category. (This is especially true since the carnivore went on a cleaning spree one day and threw out my backup pair of regular tongs.)

Now, as the name implies, these guys are great for grabbing gobs and gobs of noodles. On the nights that I make spaghetti for myself and the carnivore they certainly come in handy. However, that is not the only time I use them. I like to have them on hand for stir frying and serving my garlic green beans too. I mean, how else are you supposed to get those stringy, slippery guys on your plate? They are even great for grabbing freshly grilled corn since the tongs are a bot curved on the ends.

So, if you don't have your own set, get some here. If you do have them not only do you know what a great gadget they are, you probably have experienced their versatility too. Got a way to use these guys that I haven't thought of - let me know below.
