I need to join a support group for Pyrex lovers, something like Pyrex Hoarders Anonymous if such a thing exists.
I need to stand up in front of the group and announce to them that “my name is Helen and I have a Cinderella problem” and then the group would immediately know that its not a Disney princess issue that I have, but a colourful, patterned, vintage glass mixing bowl with pourers on the sides problem and sympathise with me!
I currently have ten Cinderella mixing bowls. Yes, thats right, ten.
Question – How many cakes do I bake? Answer – Not that many, as we are trying to cut back on sugary treats.
Question – How many fruit bowls do I need? Answer – Only one, as there are just two of us in our household.
Question – How many mixing bowls do you own again Helen? Answer – Ten.
Oh, the shame….Still, at least I can write a blog post about them!
I have the complete set of pink Gooseberry mixing bowls.
This Morning Star bowl. (My current fruit bowl)
These two white and yellow Gooseberry bowls.
My personal favourite, this turquoise Gooseberry one.
And these two Toledo bowls, which aren’t in the best condition, so they are my everyday cooking bowls. Although I do use all of them, honestly – just not all at the same time, as I do not run a bakery from my kitchen!
Apparently because I might have too much Pyrex, it totally justifies Rob owning four bikes!?! My answer back is that all of my Pyrex together cost less than the equivalent of one wheel or a pedal or something on one of his expensive bikes.
And at least I can sneak my guilty indulges into the house easier, I suppose!
