    I have to tell you what happened last year. I made a big double recipe for my family's Christmas dinner. Took it straight from the oven and headed out to the car for a 50 mile drive. Oh, forgot to mention it was in a glass Pyrex pan. Got to the dinner, carried it inside and opened the casserole carrier. The glass pan was in a million pieces with date pudding running out all over the place!
    There's a lesson for new cooks--and old ones like me should know better. I'm told Pyrex will go from cold to hot easily, but not vice versa. We live and learn!

    OMG! That must have been awful for you...I set a huge pyrex dish housing a large ham ready to go into my oven one Easter. I had company and family there. The burner had not been turned off completely and it did not tell me! LOL It broke into thousands/millions of pieces too-I know what that is like..I didn't dare use the beautiful ham so went to my freezer and got out a roast. It was small but it had to do...ha

    At least I was at home, you were 50 miles away..:(

    I'd like to make it again this year because, obviously, we didn't get to eat any of it. But this time I will use a metal pan!
