Old Pastry Blender

Late post today for November 21st’s sketch a day as the majority of the day was spent preparing for Thanksgiving Dinner and getting out the Christmas Decorations to put up tomorrow or this weekend.  But today’s sketch was completed in about an hour and I’m only posting the final result.

I love the old green and red handled kitchen tools from the 40’s (and earlier) and have several.  This is one of them and I used it today to blend the pastry for the crust of a lemon meringue for tomorrows meal.  These old tools are made so well that 70 years later they are still functional.
