I can’t wait to put some Cerignola Olives in it. I’ve never heard of an Olive Boat.

What have you found lately.

    A like-new stainless lid for my 10" All-Clad omelette pan. It's similar (but not identical) to the actual AC lid, & for 47 cents (incl tax!) I'm happy.

      You never can have enough lids. I find myself using 12 X 12 foil squares for lids all the time.

        I've had one of these for years. Don't use it so much anymore as it started feeling a bit contrived :)

          That’s interesting. I love single purpose gadgets. I guess that’s the Virgo in me.

            Well, watch out for that "contrived" feeling ;)

            I love to hunt for old cast iron. I found two small old ones at Goodwill a few weeks ago. I use them both inside and outside. I also season them and give them to friends. Very fun.

            I think I might go to a thrift store today- if I score, I will post!

              I was getting ready to edit this when I saw your reply. I think I'd use it if I were doing more "composed" hors d' doeuvres. But mine seem to be a bowl of mixed olives (maybe with cubes of feta), cheeses, pates, crackers, etc. My set also came with the little bowls for the pits which I will use on occasion. And I am DEFINITELY not into one trick ponies :) It's alright for me to keep it because they sit behind the salad and dessert plates.
              PS: It's against our marital guidelines :) to take things OUT of thrift stores. We do the reverse. ALOT.
