Cookware you secretly use as dishware?

RelishPDX | May 17, 2014 12:13 PM

While I was heating up the last of the leftover meatballs for lunch today, I was wondering if anyone else uses what was made for cookware as dishware, as I do sometimes. (But, of course, you’d never do this in front of others!)

And I’m not talking about just eating right out of the pan you’ve cooked in (oh, the crimes we sometimes commit when alone in the kitchen).

Some time ago a round 2-qt. clear Pyrex lidded glass casserole came into my possession. While it’s great for a number of uses, it’s also become my go-to pasta bowl. Yup, vermicelli and meatballs, ravioli, portions of baked ziti or lasagna warmed up from another pan, whatever, if I’m eating pasta alone it goes into the Pyrex. Rather inelegant, but it works! It’s also my go-to bowl for assembling a composed salad, such as a cobb or shrimp louie.

At the same time, I’ve got this ‘I wouldn’t want anyone to see me eating from it’ thing going on.

So do you have a piece of cookware you regularly use as dishware, too? Go ahead, let it all out, confess just like you were on Oprah. Inquiring minds want to know! :)
