    We didn't have a lot of money growing up, my mother was not a good cook but we ate off the fanciest plates in the neighbourhood. My dad was an antique collector and many of his 'finds' included the finest china and porcelain dishes at a fraction of their value. It looked spectacular on the table and even made mom's Sunday dinner look more appealing. I was the klutz and broke things easily so I'll take responsibility for the missing piece :)

    This is such a fun way to visualize our memories of Sunday dinners growing up. My grandmother always had the fine china and silverware come out for holidays-- that's how we always knew it was a special dinner. Thank you for sharing a creative way to communicate how food connects to our memories!
