Shrink It!

This Sparked Me!

I shrink all my eating utensils...I use a salad plate rather than a dinner plate whenever I can. And at home (I haven't quite the courage to do this out yet), I eat with a silver (yes, I'm worth it...but they had been my children's) baby spoon & fork. My salad plate looks so full & I'm forced to slow way down with the small utensils. I also use a beautiful hand blown wine glass for beverages. Elegant and useful in keeping portions at bay.
