We are doing a special kind of housecleaning where all things are examined and judged for usefulness or beauty or some quality that says an item should take up space in our home. These are part of a collection of Rowe Pottery. They are sturdy, heavy, and useful, yet I’ve not used any of them except the one storing my kitchen utensils.
I see a use for the one shaped like a loaf pan. I can bake meatloaf or or stuffed peppers in it, but I usually cook meals for only two. This baking dish would easily accommodate a party of four. Ah, I could bake quick breads in this one.
The spice jars I display, so really I am using them, but not for holding spices.
The one with the antelope on the front looks like a crock pot. I could slow-cook a batch of baked beans in the oven in this pretty pot. Maybe I will do it soon since it’s getting cold outside.
I know what a sugar bowl and creamer are used for, but I don’t put sugar in my coffee, and I pour my cream out of the original container and place it back in the refrigerator to stay cold. Where is the adventure in that? Perhaps I need to make more fun out of my breakfast time. Steve and I go our separate ways in the morning, each to a private devotion time, I with my coffee and cup of custard and he with his Breakfast Essentials (instant breakfast) mixed in milk.
