Need new ice-cream bowls? Head to TK Maxx.

Having locked myself out of my house yesterday and with Himself not due home for hours and hours on end, I took myself off to Portlaoise to hit up Superquinn for some half-price crab meat and other vittles... and, er, accidentally ended up in TK Maxx.


I sort of thought I might pick up a few picture frames or some kitchen bits, but I emerged with a tub of ceramic baking beans (an absolute necessity), a giant bottle of Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey shampoo (am just about out of all other shampoos, so I actually did need this!) and four acrylic ice cream bowls, two pink and two purple.

I need hardly tell you that they were an essential addition to my servingware collection.

They were €2.99 each, also available in green, black, red, and clear, and I heart them. They remind me a bit of the set of my granny's little pink glass bowls that I don't like to let people use for fear they'll break.

You can just see one here, posing as a vase:

Afterwards, I did make it to Superquinn for the crab meat which I proceeded to make into crab cakes (will post the recipe tomorrow if I get around to it.)

They would likely have been delicious had I managed to cook rather than cremate them.
