Did you know that it is entirely possible to eat chuck roast that slow cooked in the oven 5 hours that day with cooked carrots and perfect mashed potatoes...on paper plates??? Amazing!
I guess I always assumed that when you put together a perfect dinner that it better be on a set table with all the trimmings. And, you know what? I know there've been many a time when I haven't cooked anything "fancy" because all that work was followed by a sink load of dished to go with it.
Ah ha moment! Roast, carrots, and potatoes...or a steak dinner...or home-made lasagna...taste just as good on paper plates! Who knew?
