As most of you know, my oldest child went off to college this fall and we are all "growing" in this experience. This post shares another milestone- one I did not expect.
My son comes home for a visit from college and I am eager to prepare him for whatever may come his way and I ask, "Do you need anything for school?" He mentions that the entire can of soup (that I have stocked his shelves with) does not all fit in one bowl and he would like bowls that he could use and not wash. I mention that he has dish washing liquid, the proper dish cloth and that washing is easy. Well we settled on a pyrex bowl. I stood staring at the shelf of pyrex containers trying to make a decision. I think the Target store employee thought I was a little crazy to require so much time to the task. It made me a little misty to think this bowl may last him a long while. I still have a mug that I bought during my college years to microwave my oatmeal on my cupboard. My mug has lasted a long time 20 plus years at this point. Pyrex containers have been a staple in my parents house and in mine and now I will be passing along the tradition. The above picture is the chosen bowl. It holds about a quart and will work well in the dorm microwave. What is it about Pyrex?
