    I tried something new tonight-portabello mushrooms topped with a chopped spinach and mozzarella cheese mix. Baked them in the oven in my favorite 40-year old (wedding present) casserole dish. Was serving the 2nd one when the handle slipped, the dish fell on the plate, cracked off a big piece, and left little shards of glass on both plates of food! I don't know which makes me sadder-losing the new culinary treat or my favorite casserole dish. So now we're having homemade pizza from the freezer. :-(

    Oh, so sorry that happened to you. I have had a few of my favorite pieces broken and I refuse to get upset about it. It's just not worth getting mad or sad over. At least you get to enjoy pizza.

    Oh No!!! :( You had my mouth watering over those mushrooms....
    I too have lost a few favorites and it is sad, because there were many memories from using them all of the time. My kids will say that the food just doesn't taste the same without it being served in "that" dish....

    A few years ago a friend made me cake on a very old Corning plate. As I am walking home I fell in the garage and dropped it. I panicked but found a replacement on Craigslist all the way in San Francisco. Search around. Maybe you can replace it. I know it will not be the same one, but it will do the job. I am sure the size was perfect for you.

    I would have been more upset about the dish than the food. When we had a fire in our kitchen of all the things lost I was more upset about my big ceramic and glass bowls. They were expensive and it took me forever to save up the money for them. Not sure if the heat from the fire broke them or the firemen did. I found them tossed in the back yard broken. Enough ranting sorry.

    cjomomma, I completely understand. I can always fix the dish again, but may have trouble finding a dish to replace mine. Mainly, tho, I am just really glad that neither my husband or I were hit with shards of glass.

    C'mon, you really wanted that pizza. Admit it! (This is coming from a pizza fiend. I could have (and have had) pizza 5 days in a row. It IS the perfect food. (Sorry about your dish)

    Your dish sounded so yummy. I'm sorry you lost the casserole dish. We grow to love those wonderful dishes we are used to. I remember breaking a blue bowl of my moms. She sat in the middle of the kitchen crying. Found out later it was a bowl her mother gave her just before she passed away. So sad.

    Ohhhh sorry about the loss of your wonderful cook ware and mushrooms. I bet they would have been good.
    I think we've all had those days. I was trying a new recipe with chicken and it said cook in glass dish so I did. I brought it out of the oven and the glass exploded. What a mess. And it was hot. I don't care if a recipe calls for glass dish anymore I will no longer put a glass anything in the oven. :shock:
