I also found a small vase made out of terra cotta , on its side under the water pipes. It still held some chopsticks, and I remember it sitting on the kitchen counter in our house on Parkview Avenue. I cooked Chinese food often and all four of us ate it with chopsticks. The kids could use them as naturally as they used spoons. I brought that upstairs, too. Cooking was a big hobby of mine for years and I spent hours experimenting with recipes, searching for little known spices or other ingredients and creating wonderful meals. I made everything from scratch, including bread, pasta, and complicated deserts. Now after I go to the trouble of removing a pop tart from its wrapper I don't have enough interest to bother to toast it.
