My overpriced mini Pyrex shroom bowl.
One member of the Pyrex Collective recently asked for my advice (via email) regarding Pyrex addiction and the best way to go about bringing new pieces home. You know what I'm talking about. You find a beautiful medium-sized yellow Pyrex mixing bowl which would go perfectly with your small and large-sized yellow Pyrex mixing bowls. Heck - it's a set. But you know in your heart of hearts that your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, sister, mother, father, child, cousin twice removed will not understand. To them, it's just another Pyrex bowl. "Like you need another one."
My big problem is that I keep buying same size Pyrex casserole dishes and I NEVER MAKE CASSEROLE.
In an ideal world, our loved ones are rational people who would never lord over the housekeeping pursestrings like Michael Douglas' ex-wife. But Pyrex addiction can become a problem.
My husband is pretty cool with Pyrex and we don't need approval from the other person to make purchases. Most of the time, he likes what I buy and he uses Pyrex around the house. Still, there are times when I do have to ask myself if it's necessary to highlight the fact that I've bought yet another casserole dish that we don't really need. Is it even worth pointing out that a new piece has been purchased in the big scheme of things? Would he even notice that there was another Pyrex dish in the cupboard? Probably not. Still, I tend to come clean and in an upbeat way and show him what I've bought, making sure to point out all the amazing features of this latest piece of Pyrex.
What do you do? Group therapy time. Dish on the dishes.
