The little girl downstairs moved out last month. She had been a potential “girlfriend” said my sons, but, since  her move, had fallen out of favor. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess.

Her parents bought a house. Despite all the acquisitions they must have made, they insisted they didn’t need anything for the new house. At their open house this weekend, I did not want to give the traditional gift of bread (that this house may never know hunger), salt (that life may always have flavor), and wine (that joy and prosperity may reign forever) for several reasons. I have never actually seen them drink wine (inconceivable!), and they have alternative eating style that I am not sure includes bread or salt.

So, what do you make the couple that has everything? Personalized plates!

There are only three family members, so I made a plate for the “guest” as well. (Can’t give a set of three plates, right?)

I learned how to do this personalizing  of the plates on Pinterest. (Anyone who doesn’t know about Pinterest is missing something. It’s like a cosmic bookmark center for anything you ever wanted to know how to do.)

True dat!

Instructions: Decorate plate with Sharpie. Bake at 180° C (350° F) for 30 minutes. Finished. It’s that simple. Thank you, Pinterest.
