The Garbage Bowl Debate

To me it seems necessary. To a man, it's just one more "thing" in the house. It's the garbage bowl debate. When Richie and I registered for our wedding shower, we picked out several neat items, gadgets, and decor pieces. But the one thing I fell in love with was the garbage bowl...hey, come on it is a "Rachel Ray Garbage Bowl"! For those of you not up on the garbage bowl concept, here's a brief description to go with the's a bowl she designed after one that her mom used to have and it's very handy for peeling potatoes, etc. Instead of running to the trash can or standing over one while you crack eggs, peel potatoes, etc, you just throw all of the trashy stuff in the bowl and when you're done, it's one quick trip to the trash can to dump it all! Plus, it's very trendy fact, a lot of people use it for popcorn, snacks, salad-- you name it!
I have had those moments in the kitchen, after the 34th trip to the trash can, where I think about how nice it would be to not run back and forth. However, Richie thinks that any 'ole bowl will do for the idea. In fact, he dumped out my fruit and brought that bowl to me and said, "Here, garbage bowl now." Men! They just don't get it. I wonder if I dump out his tackle box and stick it in an old caboodle if he would think the same thing? :)
