I came downstairs the other night after an extra-long day of work to find that my husband had not only very kindly provided dinner, but had appropriated one of my mixing bowls for a higher purpose. Can you see what it is?
A dome plate cover! Add a handle and it would look just like a plate cover from a fancy hotel or an old movie. How cute, right? Cue waiters and chrome carts draped in snowy linen.
I had never thought of this, but those giant metal mixing bowls are really quite good for this function. Holding a bowl of mashed potatoes on the dining table, waiting for the roast to finish? Pop a bowl on top.
Leave it to an engineer to think of that.
