I do have some of my grandmother's plates and silverware. Probably have it until I die and my hope is that my daughter takes it.
Same with my cast iron. Over 60 years old and my grandmother used it, my mom used it and now I have it.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

In fairness, I found out the hard way that the smileys don't show up on everyone's phones. I was teasing a member and offended him, although we cleared it up pretty quickly.
Anyway, I find this post hilarious and will now be watching for someone to share a photo of their meal in a Cool Whip tub.

My wife rotates her worry list every couple of weeks. A month ago it was lead in dishes.
Seems the Cornflower and other patterned Corningware and Corelle Ware had lead.
She loves the plain white Corelle because it stacks so neatly—and no lead.
Like driving an ‘06 Odyssey, very practical is my wife.

Re: “She loves the plain white Corelle because it stacks so neatly—and no lead.”
And, as I noted earlier, it’s the one Corelle “pattern” that’s always available.
Look about you.

40 years ago the wife and I splurged on a Corelle dish set. Plates, saucers, and cups. The whole shebang. We still use them everyday. For our RV we got a chic red square set.

Boonton Ware. Since forever. Not microwave safe, but neither am I.
Guess I must be odd. Eaten from paper plates, plastic and, Corning ware. I used to have multiple sets of Indiana Glass from the 70s and 80s. Six beautiful 64 ounce Indiana Glass Harvest Grape pattern milk glass pitchers. The harvest grape and leaf is raised near 1/4" on the surface. The were beautiful. Matching tumblers came in 3 sizes of which I had 34 of each. Never used them all. Paid over $100.00 for 8 Westmorland bread and butter plates of harvest grape milk glass. Found 6 Westmorland harvest grape milk glass dinner plates in a antique shop for $35.00 each. Also lined my cupboards with Libby blue cobalt glasses. Had beautiful Imperial harvest grape pattern candy dishes. Very large and beautiful. Other translucent blue candy dishes. I spread 12 LE Smith glass gobbler turkeys throughout my beautiful apartment. Nothing ever got broken. Mahogany tables quite old, decorated with milk glass, brass and blue cobalt. One mahogany antique card table contained 2 Browning BDAs in .45 ACP and 1 BDA in 9mm. One would need to rotate and flip its top to expose its hidden compartment. I decorated my surroundings.
I speak jive.
I only have white plates and bowls and such.
And they're all square or rectangular, except the ramekins.
Nothing but a cabinet full of matcbing white dishes.
I have other options boxed up and put away, and some sentimental things scattered about.
But I rock the all white squares, myself.
