Saturday morning

Teachers are usually inveterate hoarders. All those 'useful' pots, boxes, containers, bits of shiny paper, 'interesting' pictures - they all end up jostling for space in a cupboard or two from whence they regularly burst forth is a glorious orgy of mess and muddle before being shoved back in again, out of sight but not out of mind! I wouldn't go so far as to say you can't be a teacher if you're not a hoarder, but . . .

One of the things that appeals to me about Bodychef, apart from the food itself, of course, is the way the meals come in 'useful containers'. There are the 'Chinese takeaway' containers for the dinners. There are the round containers for things like salads, jelly, fruit salad, trifle, etc. There are the smaller round containers ideal for nuts, dips and spreads and then there are the diddy little pots which hold just (hang on, will go and measure . . .) just 45 mls, perfect for salad dressings, etc. They all have lids that are close fitting (not necessarily waterproof) and they are all SO useful!

Why are they useful? Well, I dunno, but they are! I'm a teacher - I know!
