I made a casserole for supper - smaller than a full recipe but a little bit to big for the medium size Corningware. Solution, put the rest in a small Corningware and have an extra to share with - who? The neighbors? Or just for us to eat as leftovers.
As the photo shows, the plan failed. The green oven mitt in the top picture was slick - it needs some rubber tread on it to grasp a hot, small bowl. First mess I've had like this in a LONG time.
