For anyone who watches 30 minute meals on the Food Network knows what I mean by garbage bowl. Rachel Ray has made them very popular. I received one recently (thank you to you know who you are) and I must say it is very nice. Any ol bowl would work. Put all your trash in it as you cook. I found it very nice this morning while making Tuckers daily "blend" to throw all the baby food jars, wrappers and trash in. Then I made one trip to the trash can and guess what....I didnt drop anything because I was trying to carry it all at once and I didnt get gunk all over me before I headed out the door to work. Very nifty idea. A bowl to throw everything in and dump once after using it......hmmmm, why didnt I think of that.
