What with the holiday cooking load, there's a lot of spatulating going on in my kitchen these days. (Just as an aside, isn't it an odd feeling to spend the afternoon cooking, then find yourself at 5 p.m. without a thing to serve for dinner? You cooked all day, but it's still gonna be frozen pizza for dinner.)
Anyway, during one hectic moment, I asked my husband to hand me a spatula.
He handed me the item on the left in the photo. What I wanted was the item on the right.
We call both items a "spatula," but clearly one of them must surely have a different name. So what do you call the black item on the left? And the white item on the right?
