making the most of it

a couple of years ago, i purchased Mesu Portion Control bowls:
Dieting is hard work and measuring every bite makes it even harder. So we’ve created MESÜ®, a line of bowls that help you put an end to portion distortion, without signaling to the world that you are on a diet. MESÜ means measure beautifully™. Great design and subtle graphics let you measure perfect portions directly in a bowl that you bring to the table!
i am absolutely ashamed to admit that i purchased these. i'm embarassed for two reasons:

1. that i spent $50 (!!!) on something that takes advantage of a dieter's neverending quest for the panacea product that will lead her/him/them to weight loss. what will naturally follow, of course, is success, fulfillment and everlasting bliss. yeah, riiiiiiiiiigggggght.


2. that i actually bought them from QVC.

i have, however, found the absolutely perfect use for them that redeems their less noble beginnings.

1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate m & m's. now that's "measuring beautifully."
