Transporting Pyrex, haven't been here in a while
I havent been in here in ages... been busy...
In any case my wife who is the real cook in the house , has finally succombed and joined the hospitality committee at church and they have decided to have a cooking competition. They arent calling it that, but...
The are having the 7 last words for easter and they are selling these $.50 tickets and you can get a small piece of whatever for each ticket. Church full of hungery people, 6 or 7 women anxiously standing behind dishes on tables arrayed in the basement...
One of the ladies , when they decided to do this, had had COLLEGE STUDENTS over for dinner the previous week. She went on about how they didn't eat any of the food and they didnt appreciate home cooking, and they were to use to eating fast food.
Life is sweet in the land of dillusion....
And she was they main person saying that she wanted to bring more than one dish.
Mind you wife is 30, the rest of these ladies are mid 50's and older
In any case , when my wife told me about this , I told her she should remove herself from the competition, cause it wouldn't be fair, it would be embarrassing (to the others) it just wouldn't be right. But then I quite cause she could use the ego boost and it would help her to go on the regular.
I've been going to this church for over 30 years and the last great cook there died in the kitchen, well she had a heart attack at church, while serving and died about 4 days later, her mom did the almost the same thing a few years later,
but i digress
My wife and her mom are the best cooks I have run across since, which is part of the reason, she's my wife.
When I told my mom about it, she all ready to go and support her daughter in law. My wife and my mom get along like sterotypical wife's and inlaws,
which is made worse by the fact that there's almost 40 years between them. But mom's knows she will be in the lime light that day.
So anyway, back to my question.
I think wife is going to take 3 dishes, greens,mac and cheese and sweet potato suffle' with the nuts and stuff on it. I think we are going to take a 10x15 a 9x13 and a 8x8 pyrex of each thing. 9 dishes total. That way if those folks don't appreciate good food, It's already split up and one can go home with my mom and another to my aunt.
I am trying to figure out what's the safest way to get them from home to church, we will be warming them at church and I want to put something decorative like a skirt around them on the table.
Somewhere in my mind I get the impression that pyrex makes transporter bags or sleeves for like the 9x13 or the 8x8, but I wouldn't know where to get them with out buying more dishes and we have enough pyrex around here now to stock a factory outlet store and I don't think I ever saw one for a 10x15.
