What else can you do with a fish poaching pan?

I'd forgotten that I owned a fish poaching pan. It has been in storage. I used to use it when I'd go to Crow Lake and catch lake trout. I don't do that any more. What else can I use this for? Asparagus? What? It is one of those stainless steel ones with a rack in it, long and skinny.

Great suggestions Andy. Or she could fill it with dirt and create a window box for herbs on the sill. But I like that stuffed pepper idea.

Use it to poach fish, but don't get caught!

That was my first thought. I have a coffee pot I generally use because I like to tie the stalks and steam them standing up, but the fish poacher looks as if it would work for that as well.
