I am going green. I am using dishes I bought as a young housewife over 45 years ago. they were called Ye olden days. Each dish has a different old picture.We used them only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have a set of eight but now only set for two. We always had ice water with our meal. Our menu was usually always very traditional but plain. No decor but lots of food and good chats.I used to think how long it took to make this meal and how quick they all ate it because the men didn't want to miss the football game. Now I eat special occasions with my son and family who live on the street in back of me.The two girls now are living in other states and loss of loved ones our table has gotten smaller. My grandson will be home from collage . I am thank ful for them all.
