Kapusta? I think I’d rather eat the paper plate 🙂
jphone, kapusta doesnt taste THAT bad!
jphone, come here and you would be good friends with kapusta (the food)
mepal, thanx for defending me 🙂
I use China for the adults and Corelle for the young ones. Under 2 gets plastic. I barely ever use plastic even during the week – and I don’t have a dishwasher, nor would I let my cleaning lady wash my dishes.
I do recall my husband telling me that at a shiur on Hilchus Shabbos the person giving the Shiur mentioned that officially it wasn’t so OK to use plastic since after you’re done using it – it becomes Muktza, however, since some food usually remains in the plate then it’s OK.
Our kids are mostly married but B”H our table on Shabbos will usually have up to 20+.
Many years ago we invested in several sets of nice yet inexpensive stoneware; silverware and stemware. In the long run it comes out cheaper that having nice paper plates, etc. We have enough that washing is not necessary until after Shabbos when we do several loads in the dishwasher. It does enhance the Kavode Shabbos and our Oneg Shabbos.
