When it comes to eating have you ever thought about the fact that all good things come in a bowl? Ok, it's true, some really good stuff comes in a bun (mmmm, hamburgers and hot dogs) but dishes like soups, chilis, mac and cheese, pastas, stews, risottos, all arrive on your placemat in a deep dish and just scream comfort.

With a young daughter who is still shuttled to all her activities by either me or a friend, I'd never thought of the fact that she'll one day be old enough to trudge out for the entire day on her own, let alone needing enough provisions for it as well.
