Kitchen Gift

A couple is getting married. You want to give them a gift. One that will last. Perhaps it will need to survive a move (or two or more) and children.

In the decade when many of my friends (and myself) were taking the step of marriage several wedding gifts were popular. Toasters and blenders electric frying pans found their way into every new household. Linens were always popular and appreciated. But let’s go back to the kitchen.

Remember these?

A person would run out of numbers trying to tally the number of times these have gone from over – regular and microwave – to the table. And they travel well to pot-lucks. And store left overs in the fridge.

Do I still use them after all these years? Well, I needed to wash one before I staged this photo.
