    I love lentil soup. I make so many variations, and I just can't stop making new ways. But by far my fav would be the classic, Lentil + Onions + Potatoes.

  2. Sarah H.P. says:

    I have a set of four mugs that I found at Goodwill that I’m completely in love with! They’re white and very squatly shaped but they work perfectly for enjoying a warm cup of herbal tea!!

  3. Becky says:

    My favorite dish set is my wolf plates. Love them because I love wolves and they are white and blue. I also love the big cups for soup.

    I love the plates my sister made me. They went on an arts and crafts trip where they painted andglazed designs. They make me smile every time I eat.a

  5. Annie says:

    My favourite dish is a plate my husband painted and had glazed for me for valentine's day one year, it's dishwasher safe, but I can't bring myself to use it!

  6. Sarah says:

    My favourite dish (es) are cupcake shaped plates my mother gave me when I first moved out on my own.

  7. Mike F says:

    I have this blue dish that must have been handed down from my grandmothers house. It is always months before I see it, no real reason why, other than not matching any of the sets. Just a loner.

    Old wine glasses, if you might consider those as a part of a set of dishes, please.. They have a painted Christmas Tree on them, very, very old pre-spode…. I have 16. When I was a young girl, I gave each of my grandmothers a set, over the Holidays each grandmother used their set and many fun times were had… not just drinking wine, but soda, juice & milk for youngsters too. Unfortunately both of my grandmothers passed away, but I was lucky that they were returned to me. I now share them with my family during the Holidays. Hopefully I can pass a set on to each of my girls as they hold a lot of memories, laughter and tales… and many more to come! Thanks for reminding me of my grandmothers and my life!

    The green and white platters we bought for our wedding!

    I have a set of pyrex mixing bowls that were my grandmother's; every time I bake I use the big yellow one and think of her. The bowls are probably over 50 years old.
