My family so kuntry!
« on: November 24, 2022, 05:49:39 PM »
Today during Thanksgiving dinner at my house...

Asking me for a paper plate and a plastic fork because that is all they ever used.  >:(  I was like, 'baby you need to study hard and get yourself into college.' 

Do you use paper and plastic in your house? I don't buy it unless I'm cooking burgers in the park.

I never use paper or plastic at home.  If I get takeout food, when I get home, I put the food in a glass plate and I use my metal silverware. I throw away the Styrofoam plates and plastic ware.

When we host family gatherings we use paper plates and plastic silverware. We require everyone to get a fresh plate each time they go up for seconds/thirds. I don't want to handle anything that someone has eaten or drank from.

I'm not sure why Capler would think its kuntry.  :shrug: 

What Decks points out is fair, but a good hand washing and putting the dishes, glasses, flatware in the dishwasher on sanitize will do the trick.

That is what I do. I can't phantom eating out of a styrofoam box with a plastic fork and knife. Call me weird but i feel there are some things educated middle class folk should not do.  When you know better, you do better. Eating in rooms at your house not designed for eating in is another.  :shrug:

I don't eat off paper plates. Paper is another expense when buying groceries and other home necessities.

At Thanksgiving this year we used good plates and silver ware.

Years ago, my dad preached about people saving things for tomorrow and tomorrow isn't promised. My mom and uncle gave me real china and crystal glasses. I use them as often as I can. A gentle handwash in hot water is all it takes.
