Most of you remember my Pyrex dinner nightmare a while back. If not, you can read all about it by clicking here.
The short story is my homemade chimichangas were ruined.
I ended up disposing of more than a dozen pieces of Pyrex glassware (in addition to those pieces that shattered into thousands of tiny shards). Out with the old!
Clearly, I needed some replacements! There were several suggestions from my loyal readers: cast iron, metal, stainless steel, Le Creuset, and Pampered Chef, the latter of which received the most votes. And since I happen to already own (and love) a number of Pampered Chef products, and since we go to church with a very nice lady who is a Pampered Chef consultant, that’s what we chose.
Michael placed the order and decided to be very generous (mostly because he likes those chimichangas and wants to ensure I keep baking them). So, he purchased four new Pampered Chef baking stones. Two are 9X13 rectangular ones, and two are 9X9 square ones. All of them have a beautiful cranberry finish on the outside. And, the best part is, they are made in the USA! That’s something to cheer about, so in with the new!
These bakers are eager to be seasoned, so now I just need to decide what to bake first! I’m thinking cinnamon rolls.
