Re: PLASTIC...

Trying to get away from storing and heating food in plastic. Corelle plates it on top of Corelle bowls as lids, did ya know? Even the 1- and 2-quart serving bowls. I'm actually using my vintage Pyrex casserole dishes, of every size, for fridge storage and cooking/heating, as well as using the Corell...
