Remember these guys? Rocco has photobombed many photos on this blog, and as a duo they inspired this post in which i try to curb their appetite for trash and trash bag handles. Now with holiday parties and gatherings upon us, we had to address their equally voracious appetite for carbs, starches and dairy products.
The easy solution is to get dish covers or domes, but the glass ones, while they are very pretty, are bulky, heavy and pricey. My own version is not as pretty, but it’s inexpensive, light and easy to store. If you have pesky pets who like to pilfer your pretzels (I am not ashamed of that alliteration), I’ll tell you how to make your own dish covers.
Go to the dollar store and buy as many large clear bowls as you feel the need for. Go to the hardware store (or heck, check the dollar store, too) and buy the cheapest drawer pulls, enough for however many bowls you bought, plus a tube of super glue or epoxy.
Wash and dry the bowls. Now look at the bottom of the bowls – if your bowls have a little bump where the plastic was poured, you might want to use a nail file or sandpaper to smooth that down a bit. I lazied out on one and the handle on that dish is a bit crooked.
Here’s another shot of our dish covers in use, with Rocco pouting nearby:
Have a Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
