Chocolate truffle ganache, jello (for fun shaped table decor), and sugared cranberries all made the cut for Pyrex use:
Just as I was about to start baking the cookies, I realized I didn't have enough brown sugar. I ran over to the store -- and decided to hit Salvation Army along the way. I am super fortunate to live within a few miles of at least four different thrift stores. Most are along the way to somewhere in my town -- and most have a housewares department that only takes a few minutes to scan.
Today, right as I neared the end of my 'scan', I found this for a whopping $3:
It has a small chip on the pink part of the dish, right on the handle, but for $3, it was still worth it for the perfect lid alone!
I was just at this Salvation Army the other day, and didn't find a thing. But thanks to my poor planning on the brown sugar front, I now have something else to match the Pink Daisy dish I had been contemplating giving away.
Of course I put the Pyrex to use as soon as those cookies were done.
Hope your kitchen mishaps lead you to Pyrex prospects as well!
