Grandma had one of these growing up!
Mom, the boys, and I headed off this morning to the Ballpark Market here in downtown Denver. Mom and I had gone a few years ago, but had not been back for whatever reason. There are three or four of this markets around the city on various Saturdays, so it's nice to visit some of them now and again.
Personally, I was surprised that this one isn't any larger than it was after all the years they've been doing it. There was no Farmer's Market as listed and the pastries and coffees from their snack shop must have been sold out of the hot dog stand. The Paris Street Market by constrast is quite large and very busy. There is also the a Sweet William Market, too for those of you who may be interested!
However, I still found some fun treasures! I had birthday money that's been burning a hole in my pocket since March, so I was on the look out for some unique items.
My New Shelf for Teacups and Treasures
Have you ever bought something outdoors only to be surprised by how large it really is when it is indoors? Sweetheart and I have this problem every time we cut down our own Christmas trees in the forest. Like the year it passed the windows on the SECOND floor of the vaulted ceiling. Yup.
So, that will help you understand this bowl. It looked like a nice big bowl to hold my double batches of bread dough. Ok. It'll do that.
In fact, here's the t*r*i*p*l*e batch of dough, that's six loaves, AFTER it had risen.
Maybe this will help get the size into perspective! It'll hold dough for six loaves of bread with ease, but only one Dumpling.
(By the way, ignore the mess on the counter by the sink, but notice the great vintage Pyrex dishes I got!) I have no idea where I'm going to store this when it's not in use!!!
