Tupperware.  Described by Google as "A home products line that includes preparation, storage, containment and serving products invented by Earl Tupper of Orlando, Florida, in 1948, and as of 2010 had 13,500 employees with a net income of 225.6 million." Described by me as "one of the most delightful creations ever invented!"

Not only are the colors beautifully prismatic, it makes whatever I cook taste better.  No matter how rigidly I follow my Mother-in Law's recipes, (instructions included) at my house, we still put the potatoes on the gravy.  Looks beautiful, tastes not so terrible!

I've had a lot of Tupperware in my lifetime, but each time a new catalog comes out, my heart skips a beat. When Kim Harris gave it to me at the C Store, I was overjoyed. I had to stop myself from pulling over in Haswell to look at it on the way home.  Later that evening, as I ooooohed and aaaaawed while contemplating my latest order, I couldn't help but wonder where I was going to put it.  I woke with a start in the middle of a dream that we were sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner and the table was set in Tupperware....beautiful purple plastic plates with matching purple plastic glasses that  have matching purple lids with holes for straws.  Beautiful straws...it could catch on....the salad spinner did....  

Who needs all that namby pamby Noritake china with lead crystal goblets on glass shelves?!  Out with the old and in with the new!  I can't wait to see all of those beautiful new Tupperware colors displayed under the soft lighting on glass shelves in my "china" hutch. "Come, Kawasaki! We've work to do!"

May you be living the good life, Cassie Frey!
