Blue Skies and Pyrex: Vintage Kitchen Picking!
I've missed my blog! I had to take time away to rest before I can get to editing my cook book. Yesterday afternoon I sat on the rocking chair in my sunroom, listened to the one remaining a.m. oldies station and rumbling sky as a thunderstorm clouded out an unseasonably warm sunny afternoon. It was very soothing. Except for the weather report: Snow for Sunday!
For over two months seven days a week my kitchen was a working WWI - 1940 recipe testing facility from dawn until way past dusk. In order to force myself to take a break I've ordered a muumuu online! It's an assignment I gave myself. I'm going to treat mandated relaxation like a job complete with its own uniform (that does seem counter-intuitive and granted is a bit kooky). I'm definitely a Type A prone to overworking, so it's what I gotta do. We all could afford to stress less, don't you think? That's something I plan to cover in my book after my cook book.
I took a walk around my neighborhood this afternoon and snapped a pic of these clouds that look like they are speeding by. As for my vintage picking today, the pretty blue mixing bowl above is Pyrex. My cost: $1.
These cute little "Citrus Fruit Eating Gadgets" are the same starburst pattern as my flatware. My cost: $3.
I LOVE these vintage 1940s blue tint Pyrex Flameware glass saucepans with detachable glass handles! They look like they were never used. I bought them on sale at an antique shop, all three for $26. I especially like that they have the original paper labels.
I'm not comforted by the "For your protection" clause though, but I plan to use these on lower heat settings. I think they might be good for making pudding and white sauces.
I'll aim to update at least once a week. Have a great weekend!
