At our wonderful potluck while making Molasses Batch 3, I chose to eat on our usual tin plate with stainless steel fork and spoon and a cloth napkin besides. I just could not eat on paper plates. They are less than substantial, plus they are a gift of Trees. I think I was the only one who made such choices. In times when the strange has become the norm, it is important to do strange things.
And yes, I did use 2 styrofoam bowls later for Deleta's delicious Apple Crisp and 3 plastic spoons. I couldn't help myself. I need to cut that out too. I'm not perfect but I try.
