A Vintage Find

Nothing like a great vintage bargain to start off my Friday! For months now I've wanted a divided dish for serving vegetables. Sounds ridiculous, I know, but growing up my mom always had at least 2 veggie options at every dinner and they were always served in an oval milk-glass pyrex divided dish. Now that I have a family of my own I also like to have at least 2 veggie options (not that my son will eat any that are offered). I'd done some online browsing and found 2 that I liked but thought they were overpriced - one was from Rachel Ray and the other was from Chefs. I'd also checked eBay to see what was offered but I knew I could find something local at a thrift shop or something.

We don't have a lot of space on our kitchen table for serving dishes and I don't like the though of dirtying a ton of dishes so up until now I've always just left everything on the stove and dinner was served on plates before going to the table. But not anymore! My neighbor across the street was having a garage sale bright and early at 7:30am this morning. As I was taking out the garbage I decided to take a quick look at what she was offering. I was so excited to find a vintage milk-glass pyrex serving dish with a lid for only $3! Woo-hoo! After I got it home I looked online and found the same one on eBay for $19.99 and Amazon for $44! I'm so excited! It doesn't exactly match the rest of our dishes but it will make me smile and remind me of my mom every time I use it. Okay, what's for dinner...
