These days, it seems that every other person we meet is raising a flock of backyard chickens, tending to a vegetable garden, or at least browsing their local farmers market for the perkiest produce. With so much emphasis placed on our food's provenance, it only seems natural to become more interested in the origin of the plates and platters on which our favorite dishes are served. In that spirit, we're making a pointed effort to extend the movement to our dinnerware collection by shopping from the plethora of dinnerware producers based in the good old USA.
If you're tending to ceramics and silverware incorrectly, the odds are stacked against you, and you'll likely run into snafus in years to come. Want to preserve your fancy ceramics and silverware for life? Follow these instructions for packing with care when you read more.
Here are a few more of my favorites.
While I'm a huge fan and advocate of pitcher drinks, it recently came to my attention that I don't own a pitcher! From sangria to lemonade, I plan on making a lot of concoctions this Spring and Summer and it's high time I invested in a sturdy, yet stylish pitcher. Can you help me find one? Here's what I need you to do: search the Internet for pitchers and when you come across something you think I'll like, bookmark it in the Off to Market group in the YumSugar Community. This will allow me to share your discoveries with everyone. It's super easy and really fun, so start looking for pitchers now!
With the weather warming up, I've turned my attention to alfresco entertaining. Last weekend, I suggested my guests and I grab our cocktails and appetizers and head out to the patio. There was a lot to carry and on my third trip back to the kitchen, I couldn't help but wonder why I don't own a stylish serving tray? Can you help me find one? Look for a large chic tray with edges to ensure that nothing slides off during transit. Save the trays in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Serving Tray. I'm excited to see your discoveries!
