Well it had to happen eventually.....

Last Sunday while I was preparing supper....

I broke a Pyrex!

And let me tell you; it hurts!

This casserole had a sentimental value; my Dad had bought it for me at Brimfield...

You know, it happens so fast. I remeber I had something in my hand, some kind of veggie I believe.

I reached for the 1 pint casserole and next thing I knew it slipped, bounced on the KitchenAid

And exploded in mid-air after....throwing shards all over the kitchen and lodging some in my hand.

Ouch! I couldn't even see them, but I sure could feel them.

I picked up the bigger pieces by hand, then I swept the floor and finally I vacuumed.

The hamburgers were overcooked! LOL

Right after supper I was surfing the web and hunting for the very same casserole.

I found one from one of my favorite Etsy sellers Jen from Jen's closet . She is one of the nicest persons I've had the pleasure to 'meet' on the web.

Be sure to drop by for a visit and say hi!

As a matter of fact I just bought a new to me 471 1 pint Pyrex Butterprint casserole! YAY!

I'm looking forward to a weekend of floating in the pool (definitely), thrifting (hopefully), and sampling real Kansas style BBQ (please,please,please) not too far from my house. I will be cooking,gardening and reading too

Yay for summer!

Maybe I can squeeze in a post about some of my Pyrex ;)

I feel your pain! I had an oval pyrex baking dish which I believe was just like that, it had been given to us as a wedding present in 1972, and I broke it.

I nearly cried.

Oh my goodness - - - WRONG YEAR. I got married in 1975, I graduated from high school in 72.

I must be getting senile or something.

Aw, hate when that happens. Well, hope you get your new one soon, and remember we've all been there. I still haven't replaced my red bowl in the primary color set.

It takes a lot to break a Pyrex, they're tough! I'll have your new one on it's way today!

Oh no! It hurts I know and I'm just glad you found a replacement piece! Hugs, Linda

I literally said, "aww" out loud! That must seriously suck! I will keep my figers crossed you run into a replacement asap! :)
