Into the woods.

Once upon a time there was an oval baking dish and a rectangular baking dish. They lived in the forest in England with all their friends: foxes and hedgehogs and owls, all under a canopy of leafy trees. They spent their days doing what baking dishes do best: making roasted vegetables, baked pastas, fruit crisps, and anything else they were in the mood for. One day they met, and they decided to form a set—after all, they had so much in common. And from then on they brought dinner from the oven to the table every night, and we’ve lived (and eaten) happily ever after.
