Pyrex In Action

Hello fellow Pyrex fans!

A few weeks ago I picked up a large old orchard Pyrex bowl for $6.50 at our local Salvation Army.  It didn't have its lid, bummer, but was free from any scrapes or scratches.  Well worth the money!

I put my new Pyrex bowl to use holding our first batch of Gazpacho soup.  Without the lid I had to cover it with foil for the marinating process, but that's okay.  I hope to find a lid soon!

I'm in love with my new bowl and had to share my Pyrex in action!  I do so love ALL Pyrex!


  1. Nice find...soup looks good too!

  2. Okay we should have a rule here...if you show us food, you must share the recipe :) I've never made gazpacho soup but yours looks yummy, care to share your recipe? :)

  3. Here you go, the recipe:


    4 cups tomato juice or V8 (I prefer the flavor of V8)
    2 cups peeled, seeded, finely chopped fresh tomatoes
    1 cup finely chopped celery
    1 cup finely chopped cucumber
    1 cup finely chopped green pepper
    1 cup finely chopped onions
    3 Tbsp white wine vinegar (don’t skip this!)
    2 Tbsb extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
    2 tsp finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    ½ tsp salt (taste without before you add, V8 has a lot of salt in it already)
    ½ tsp Worcetershire sauce (don’t skip this!)
    ½ tsp fresh ground black pepper

    Combine all ingredients in a large glass or stainless-steel bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve cold.

    I got this recipe from the South Beach Diet book. It has become one of our family favorites. Tastes like you’re eating a garden! Served with hamburger patties or deli sandwiches is a nice combination.

  4. Thanks for the recipe, Michelle! I'll be trying it out soon. Maybe I'll post my own proud photo on here, too :)
