We have a tiny kitchen, so everything needs to serve a dual purpose. The cookie drying rack is also a dish rack. The porcelain tart pan is also for baking fish and small chickens. The hand mixer serves as blender, mixer and food processor.
And leftovers get put in cheap dishes from Chinatown topped with foil. It's a good system until you have to take them somewhere! If I had more room, I would love a set of these glass containers from Martha. And at a little over a dollar a piece, you don't have to worry about giving them away.
