WOW: The Green Bowl

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
Since my last Pinterest fail, I decided that I would find an easy 'do-able' cake recipe that I can make up for my DH without having to pull out the cake mixer and make a big deal of it. Interestingly, I do own a cake mixer (that gets used only yearly), as well as a gorgeous set of mixing bowls that are sitting in the cupboard, nested perfectly and gathering dust. When I need to mix, I always pull out this bowl which is 35 years old. How old?! I can barely believe I just typed that.

In this bowl I have mixed cakes for all my children's birthdays (back when it was the norm to bake your children's birthday cakes yourself) and made countless Easter and Christmas mixes too. It's interesting how a plastic bowl can have so much value, but the truth is, no matter how many times I replace it, I just can't bare to let it go.

It looks like I'll be using it until it falls apart. Unless it goes on to outlive me. It's German made, so anything's possible!

What's Your WOW?

  1. I know what you mean Esther - where as I do bake more than you do I seem to use the same pans and bowls all the time although recently I saw a really neat scone baking dish that I might buy.

  2. I totally get this, I do the same thing. I have favorites I reach for every time. At some point there comes a moment when you fear breaking it or using it up, and then you have to start making yourself use the new one to save the favorite one! I am so glad other people are like me. LeeAnna
