After years of grateful service, I have traded in my old Corelle Ware. It has served my family well. I've been looking for just the right set to make the replacement. I have seen many, but most are so HEAVY. My mom and I were at Ikea heading to the exit. We took a wrong turn and ended up in the dishes section and there they were. (if this scene were in a t.v. show this is the moment when the unseen choir would sing "AAAAHHHH") They called my name and I was immediatley drawn to them. But, before I could get too excited, they had to meet certain criteria.
#1-the weight test (PASS)
#2-do they have serving bowls and a platter (PASS)
#3-can I buy additional plates and bowels besides the pre-packaged sets (PASS)
#4-are they affordable (PASS)
#5-can I convince hubby I needed them (PASS, of course. And since it's almost my birthday I had that to fall back on!)
#6- a bonus. They came packaged in a serving of 6! Most are 4. (PASS)
So, we had a winner!! The color is perfect and it matches so many of my other dishes. I love them. I'm glad we took that wrong turn in Ikea........
