Pyrex Lid for Brownies

What do you do when you do not have an 8 inch cake pan? Why use a pyrex lid instead! 

We are having Dutch friends over for dinner tomorrow night, and I wanted to serve homemade (oops, packaged!) brownies. Luckily we picked up lots of clear glass pyrex casserole dishes with their lids while thrift shopping last year. This lid worked perfectly!

Oh, and that is fresh guacamole in the bowl on the left. Taco/chili salad is the main course. And I just remembered that I need to make the Ranch Dressing. Everything else is ready. Good thing, since we are walking to a brocante market tomorrow morning.

We thrift shopped this afternoon for another chair for the Beltway Apartment living room. Just need to lug it upstairs and give it a good wash down.

And the toaster oven ( brand new!) in the photo was a super thrift from a shop in Twello. Isn't that a cool name? Mellow Twello. Sounds like some place from the 1970's!

Great idea and a perfect stand-in for all kinds of goodies. The brownies look delicious!

Mmm, yes. I think I'll head out to the kitchen and fire up the oven. :)

Great idea!

Nou, dat klinkt goed en ziet er lekker uit.
Leuk om met vrienden te eten.
Veel plezier. En als jullie Twello weten te vinden zou je ook even naar Deventer moeten gaan. Vlakbij en een mooie oude stad!

Lieve groet,

It would never occur to me to use the lid. Good for you.

Looks good to me- great idea with the lid. That shop does sound like a '70s name! xo Diana

Reminds me of our Florida vacation "Iron Chef" challenges!
