I have a tiny story to tell ~
We were having a wonderful Sunday evening....
Clara had spent the afternoon with us, we'd taken her to w-mart and had a big time!
We were planning on having an old fashioned vegetable meal for dinner.
My hubs makes an amazing squash casserole, plus we planned on
black-eyed peas, cabbage, new potatoes, biscuits and even cornbread.
Brent and Emily had gone fishing together and were coming to eat
and Chase was coming over as well...
we always seem to have a crowd around here!
We were in the home stretch with dinner....everything was almost finished.
I pulled out the squash casserole and placed on the stove top.
I had just removed the new potatoes from the burner, so it was still really hot.
I decided to move the casserole over and it EXPLODED in my face!!!!
Well, first I screamed...
Emily and Clara were both in the kitchen with me
and I just happened to be right in front of the dish.
I'm just so thankful they were on the other side of the room!!
I was cut in a couple of places and GLASS WAS EVERYWHERE!
Of course, next I started bawling my eyes out...our wonderful dinner was ruined.
Glass shards were all in my new potatoes....all over the cornbread....
and of course the amazing squash casserole was ruined.
Thank goodness the other items had lids ~
My sweet boys cleaned up everything as I cried on the front porch :)
What a baby I was. Brent and Chase cleaned it all up and headed to the
grocery store to save the day....what would I do without my sweeties???
But what I wanted to tell you was that this isn't the first time
this has happened to me with a Pyrex dish!
They just can't handle high heat!!
I googled it and found TONS of folks this has happened to.
From now on we'll cook in a metal pan ~
this was just way too scary.

And for a complete change of subject....
I have a little book review for you!
I love Victoria books...the old ones and even the new ones.
I bought this gorgeous book last year and have to share a teeny bit
of the goodness that's inside this one ~

It's not too early to starting thinking Christmas ~ it will be here in the blink of an eye.

Fall is tickling us here in Georgia.
