Downsized My Plates!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I saw a book that shows how 1963 dinner plates averaged 9" compared to today's, which are 12" wide. I found 9-inch 'Food Network' "salad" plates at Kohl's that I use for dinner plates. The smaller plates make portions look bigger. Kohl's also has 1-cup ceramic bowls and Target has 2-cup cereal bowls. Now when I put something to eat into a bowl, I know how much I have without measuring. emoticon
