boy, do you feel like a professional when you use prep bowls.

mis en place is the official (read: french – “meez an plass”) term for getting all your ingredients ready before you start cooking, and it ideally includes lots of these little bowls. unfortunately, i’m such a dump-and-guesser that i’m generally not that prepared.

but even if you don’t set a perfect “mis,” prep bowls come in handy all the time for minced garlic, pre-measured spices, chopped herbs, a separated egg, olive oil, portion-controlled ice cream at midnight, etc etc etc.

a very small – but worthwhile – investment. look for packs of six at the container store, bb&b or your other favorite home-goods store.
