My MIL called today and was telling me about her prep for hosting T'giving dinner for their large Italian family in Naples, Florida...we're in the Northeast and are not joining them this year. She was on her way home from Costco where she bought "quality paper plates" to use for dinner. I almost dropped my phone, who uses paper plates for Thanksgiving?? It's the one holiday of the year where the food is the star. Money is not the issue and she has several (including holiday) china patterns. And she has two dishwashers. Sure it might make clean up easier but how totally wrong wrong wrong! I'm trying to wrap my head around this.
