A Pyrex Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is only a few days away so I thought I'd share these Pyrex holiday recipes from their 1955 ad campaign in Better Homes & Gardens. I often associate Pyrex with the holidays because I can distinctly remember my mother's kitchen being full of Pyrex bowls and cookware during Thanksgiving and throughout Christmas.
The 1955 Pyrex Thanksgiving Menu:
- Fresh Fruit Cup
- Roast Turkey
- Celery Stuffing
- Baked Broccoli
- Bacon & Sweet Potatoes
- Pecan Pie
- Cranberry Sauce
Recipes, ideas and baking suggestions are all included in the Pyrex ad above. Just click on the image to see the full-size version.
Vintage Pyrex glassware is very popular and extremely collectible now due to it's longevity, smart design and bright colors. If you'd like to learn more about vintage Pyrex I highly recommend visiting the Pyrex Love site where you'll find helpful pattern references and an FAQ. Pyrex Love is also responsible for the wonderful Pyrex Love Flickr Group where Pyrex owners share pictures of their colorful Pyrex collections.
