sturdy inexpensive dinnerware
We are installing a tiny kitchenette for guests downstairs, which leads out to our deck. We need plates and bowls, but I don't want them breakable, since they'll be eating outdoors almost all the time. Or at least they should be able to avoid easy breakage.
I haven't bought kitchen things for decades. What kind of material should I look for? Long ago there was something called Melmac that might have worked. I know nothing about this, and feel stupid even asking...but I'm not finding anything that sounds useful when I search. Any suggestions?
I could just use paper items down there, since it's a vacation place...but that bothers me because of the environment. What do you guys think? We were so lucky to move to a small lake home, despite never having much money. Who knew at my age I'd run into worries like a young woman just starting out would have?! :D (We love it here!)
