For a few years, I have been on a hunt for a set of vintage pyrex mixing bowls in graduated sizes sporting colors of yellow, red, green, and blue. They aren't extremely rare, but the price tag isn't cheap. When Dick and I camped at Itasca State Park after Labor Day Weekend, we drove into Bemidji one day and stopped at antique stores along the way. At one shop, where items were semi-haphazardly displayed... my favorite... love the hunt, I spied a set at a very reasonable price. It was missing the red bowl but still a good buy. Since I was purchasing other items, in addition to the bowls, the shopkeeper offered me an additional discount on my purchases. Now the hunt continues for a red bowl to complete the set. It nests between the yellow and green bowls. (The little square bowl that holds chocolate chips and chopped pecans is another pyrex dish that I bought at the same antique store. It has the cutest line-drawn blue rooster on the side.)
Today my bowls hold ingredients ready to be mixed together for Triple Chocolate Cookies.
