Some background story about my glass baking dish

Sharing a story about my glass baking dish for posterity’s sake. You may have seen this anchor bake dish twice in this blog which is actually as old as my daughter

My two-decade-old Anchor Ovenware Baking Dish.

This was given by then Health secretary Carmencita Reodica to health reporters as a Christmas present.

It was a sort of tradition for health beat reporters to hold a simple Christmas party. We had some food to feast on and prepared a little something for each one. The health chief would usually grace the salo-salo and greet everyone a Merry Christmas. Sometimes the token is given (before or) after the health secretary visits the press office. 

Sec. Reodica was assigned at the DOH from April 1996 to June 1998, so this baking dish could be 22 to 23 years old already. It still looks brand new after all these years serving good food and desserts. 

I hope to pass it on to my kids whoever wants to have it. 🙂

Everyone is busy preparing Christmas decorations at home and wrapping gifts to their friends and relatives. I may have plans or prepare an imaginary Christmas list for some people close to me, but things are not favorable as I wish it to be this year. For now, my “shopping” list will have to wait until maybe I have enough resources to cover for it.

For my kids’ advisory teacher, I might get them some delectable home-baked goodies from my friends’ business such as Fedhz Polvoron and Sammy’s Pine-Carrot Cupcake. I should have placed my order earlier in time for the kids’ Christmas Party next week. I’m sure the lady teachers will love the polvoron and cupcakes. The male teachers won’t surely trade these sweet treats to a pack of perdomo cigars.
