My new (brightly coloured!) bowls

Pink bowlsEquipped with one very large mixing bowl (also useful as a basin!) and a scattering of much smaller ones, I was in the market for a medium sized bowl or bowls. When the Boyfriend and I were in Avoca Handweavers a few weeks ago, queuing for our late lunch, I did some wandering around all the gorgeous goods on display. Piles of enticing cookbooks, soft and richly coloured blankets and throws, sparkling jewellery, jars of jams and jellies, sweet-smelling breads – all laid out to entice browsers and shoppers alike.

It’s the kind of place that makes the Boyfriend get very tired, very quickly so I had limited time for wandering. I did, however, manage to find these colourful, lipped bowls with handles – one baby pink, one shocking pink with contrasting lids – from a company called Rice and they have more than proven their worth since. Because of the lids they are useful as storage containers, the non-slip ring on the bottom makes them perfect for mixing and they’ve been a good size for a making a double mixture of Chocolate Chip Chocolate Muffins and some Buttermilk Pancakes (thanks to Nic over on Bakingsheet) for an impromptu cousins’ brunch on St Patrick’s Day.

A word of warning, though. I bought these bowls in Avoca’s Kilmacanogue branch in a set of two for €10.95. I’ve since seen them on sale separately in the Suffolk Street shop, with the big bowl alone priced at €10.95. Still gorgeous – and very useful – bowls but not such a good deal at that price.
