Coffee Klatch - Promise to A Virgin Pastry Board
So, to begin, I bought a new pastry board. I'd like to make it a promise.
Message to My Pastry Board: Welcome to our home little wooden board. You have been untouched by meat, vegetables, fruit, play dough, and other non-pastry ingredients. I promise to take good care of you and to never let anything touch you except pastry dough, pie dough, bread dough, savory and sweet dough. Never will meat drain its bloody juices on you. Never will you smell like garlic or onions. I will not let you swim in water causing you to warp and dry out. Together, we will make beautiful pastries, breads, and pies. When I am no longer able to roll or knead dough, I will make sure you are given to someone who can carry on our mission.
