A few "Ah hah!" moments this week
I used to own a glass relish tray, but I can't find it: it's still packed somewhere, broken or lost. I knew that I'd be doing a relish tray for Christmas eve, yet didn't want to use multiple small bowls, or buy one.
Then I remembered:
Last year, about this time, I used gift money to buy 2 new sets of everyday flatware. I selected Cuisinart, black handled sets only to have the black, "painted on" plastic part start coming off! I was far from happy about them, but glad that Kohl's took them back, no questions (I still had the receipt). I still needed to replace my old flatwear that literally has been falling apart. Then I remembered:
I still have my "good flatware" Oneida stainless steel that I received from various family members/friends for my wedding in 1987. It was rarely used, like my china (still debating what to do with that)so why not use it? It's not overly fancy, is quality, it's already owned!
