I feel the need to blog about a bowl I have. Some people blog about special thrift store finds or must have gadgets but I really want to tell you about an extra-ordinary bowl.
This bowl is BIG, like popcorn bowl big! I used to pop popcorn in it, because it's metal, and did I mention big?
This bowl is tarnished a little, mostly from popcorn popping but some what because of the epsom salt I dissolved in it for feet soaking. Mr. Incredible bought this bowl for me after we saw a similar one on Alton Brown's show "Good Eats."
You wouldn't know it now but it once held the most amazing things! In one night it served as a hat, caught all I had eaten in one day, and contained an organ. Yep that's right an organ. You see this bowl was multifunctional at the birth of my third child who was born at home. (The hat function only served as a distraction for painful contractions and the bowl was clean when it was used as such)
Yesterday I used the bowl as a back up for my queasy daughter and today I used it to hold a salt water plant while I cleaned the fish tank.
Ahh yes I have fond memories of this bowl. I hope we will not soon be parted. Please do tell me about your mulitfunctional - can't live without - household items.
