I just really liked them and thought they were sweet. The mug sits in a special spot that has been marked out just for it. I had visions of putting muffins and tea on them for an afternoon tea-time; or maybe a sandwich and small cup of soup in that sweet little glass mug.
Fast-forward from Thursday to last night, Saturday. I had been away with my knitty friends for the afternoon. I put supper for the Big Dog and the boys in the crock pot and they ate a late lunch. So by the time I got home a little after 6 PM, everyone was hungry. I brought chips and salsa home and was planning to just put out a stack of paper plates and the snacks. Then, Big Mac said, "We sould use our new plates!" And THIS was his idea:
Salsa in the mug and chips on the plate. These little luncheon plates are PERFECT for this snack.
I have seen these plate sets at the thrift store in the past. Maybe you can find a set for you and your family to use for snacks, sandwiches OR chips and salsa!
