What Started It All
Whatever is this? you might ask.
“Why, it’s a clear bowl!” Whatever is it for?
One day when I was feeling particularly sad, I emptied the dishwasher. When I saw these tiny, little bowls I smiled. I smiled so big that I realized I was smiling. And in that moment, I recognized that there are so many little things that make me happy I wanted to keep track of them. I use these tiny, little bowls to put a teaspoon-of-this or a tablespoon-of-that in them while I gather all my ingredients. Then, when I’m ready, I toss the ingredients into the dish I’m making with such a flourish, I feel like Emeril or Bobby or the Barefoot Contessa (does she flourish?) and that makes me happy.
So raise your glass to the tiny, little bowl!
