Too bad about the Pyrex. I've seen it at least three times before, and resisted the temptation. I am only guessing, but I suspect that a similar Pyrex set will appear soon. Anything that sells well returns to Woot from what I've seen.
About the cooking for myself, I made pie crust last night, and have it sitting in the fridge so that the water can get into the flour, making a flakier pie. There are a couple of dozen apples sitting in my work area, so I can eat an apple as I work, if that's what I want. Best of all, I get to "test" the pie as it cools to make sure that "it's okay to eat." (heh, heh)
After that, it's going to be either homemade marshmallows or homemade caramels. I love making candy, and am always amazed at how much great candy you get for very little effort. I'm not talking about molding chocolate, which I understand is challenging, but making yummy regular candy (like marshmallows or caramels) is pretty easy. If you have a good digital thermometer, 99% of the tough stuff is done.
