A comment left on someone's post can lead to a possible new slice. I wish I could give credit to the post that led me here, but I can't find it and I failed to save it to my padlet of saved slices. 😞
But someone's post mentioned a Tupperware dish the family always used to make dressing. And we make dressing (not stuffing) at our house and we have a big Tupperware bowl that we always use for this purpose too! I begin the day before Thanksgiving crumbling biscuits and cornbread into the bowl in anticipation of this dish that holds more importance than the turkey at our Thanksgiving table.
I also use this dish when I make meatloaf. It gives me plenty of room to hand blend the hamburger and oatmeal before adding the sauce and egg and spices mixture. I've tried using the Kitchen aid mixer for this process. It just doesn't work. Nothing beats the hand mixing process and the big yellow (or is it orange?) bowl is perfect for this task.
The third all important function of this bowl is to make Muddy Buddies. This Corn Chex concoction of melted chocolate chips, peanut butter and powdered sugar absolutely requires the big yellow bowl for the all important "shaking" step. I could probably create a timeline history that shows my children growing up as they shake the contents in the big yellow bowl. Sometimes the Muddy Buddies get divided into smaller containers, but more often than not, the morsels of chocolate goodness stay in the bowl until it's emptied and someone decides to scrap the sides of the bowl for the last bits of chocolate and powdered sugar.
And that's the three purposes of our big Tupperware bowl that I mentioned in a comment. And then I remembered a fourth use! It always comes out when we make homemade ice cream. It's perfect for holding the paddle as we all stand around, spoons in hand, eager to scoop up that first delicious bite.
And so I knew that I had the seeds for a "Tupperware bowl slice" and then a three year old memory serendipitously popped up on my Facebook feed and provided a 5th use for the big Tupperware bowl. Check out the pics for almost two year old Teddy's creative demonstration.
