What To Do?

I'm surprised at how often I'm asked "What can I do with those big bowls of yours?"

Here's an idea -- a salad we just took to a party of 21 people...

And as the salad gets smaller, you get to see more of the bowl...


  1. and the salad will taste better in that beautiful bowl!

  2. Presentation is important....why would anyone want to serve such a beautiful salad in plastic. Your bowls are wonderful. Their warm color enhances the food.

  3. and the pasta shape matches the rim!!

  4. Sometimes I take seconds with minor flaws to pot-lucks with a note on the bottom that reads: "Keep the bowl, or if you don't need it, pass it on at your next pot-luck!"

  5. I love the "what would I do with this?" question ...

  6. "...and the pasta shape matches the rim!!"

    Rotini-rimmed bowl. I like it.

    I also like the "Pass it on" thing with seconds. Good idea.

    Thanks for the compliments, smartcat and Tracey!

    Hollis, some day I'm going to do a post on my most recent observations vis a vis making versatile vs. dedicated-use pots. Let's just say -- the short story is that after this year's observations, I'm shocked at my conclusion.
