The collective has expressed using their pyrex- and while I do, there are a few favorites I just can't use for fear of breaking it. So, I decided I needed spares and have been on the look out! Today, I found all of this: a pyrex lemonade carafe, a coordinating Gemco juicer, pink gooseberry casserole, and a yellow stripe small bowl! Now, I don't have any yellow stripes, so it isn't exactly a spare. And the lemon pieces pictured above will be a gift. So, still some newbies to my collection. Spares will be needed for baking... because what if I break my snowflake spacesavers?! Can't risk it! So when I found this butterfly gold lasagna pan for $5, I knew it was a match made in heaven.
I wonder if patterns were regional? Because I always find A LOT of butterfly gold in central NY. Of course that isn't my main pattern, but I've started making exceptions. The flea market dealer priced it at $10, and without me even saying a word he said "Well, how about $5"- YAY! I thought it was even priced well at $10 though...
Bought a box of tomatos and pyrex at the flea. I chopped them with garlic, olive oil, balsamic- baked it, and tossed it over pasta. Yum!
Happy pyrexing :)
