I have a set of these casserole dishes that belonged to my grandmother. I use them all the time and each time I do I think of her. I remember going to her house and having holiday meals and she would use them. I am reminded of how my grandmother used to have carrots, my favorites, in one of these dishes. They would be oh so hot and swimming in butter. I also think of here when I make butternut squash and mix it with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter and bake it for Thanksgiving dinner. I use the bigger one to cook stuffing and more often, Shepperd's pie. These casserole dishes are very sentimental to me.
Last night Rich was putting something away and broke almost everyone of them. I am so very sad!!! I know that they are only things but they are the things that remind me of my "Nana". I suppose now I am going to have to be on the hunt to find replacements. I feel as blue as the cornflower design!
