Do you have a dish or container that most people your age also own? Well, I think that most people my age own a big tupperware bowl in either yellow or green. In later years they changed the color I think, I'm not sure. I haven't been to a Tupperware party for MANY years, but in looking online it seems there is a similar one in orange and white and made out of a different material. It doesn't have the memories that mine has!
I received my bowl as a shower gift in 1975. I don't remember who gave it to me, but it was money well spent. Over the years it has been used for MANY batches of potato salad, rotini salad, bread dough, Christmas cookies, beer batter, and a variety of other things. I can tell my kids and my hubby to get the big yellow bowl and they know exactly which one I'm talking about! The bowl has a few melted spots where it got too close to the stove, or a hot utensil, but never melted all the way through. My name, written in black marker, is fading on the top of the lid. Putting my name on it was necessary as I have taken it to many family dinners, picnics, and high school potlucks.
So, family leave me a note about this bowl. Friends, let me know if you have an item most people your age also own.
