Repurposing Plates

I may have mentioned this, but BC and I have a CSA half share this summer and fall. I can’t tell you how glorious it is to receive a bundle of vegetables every other week. It’s also lots of fun to figure out how to cook with what we’re given. (We record our meals on a blog with some friends, Party in the CSA.) Photographing so many of our meals makes me wish we had more variety in our dishware. If so inclined, I know of a few things we could do with our old plates when we get around to replacing them.
