If you ever think you might find yourself without hot water but needing to wash dishes or wash you hair in a stream, you might try Camp Suds. When we tent camped without amenities except running stream water, this came in handy. It does a great job cleaning in COLD water.

Wow-thanks for posting that...I remember my great grandmothers Melmac dishes and bowls-nice mint green color. I loved those things!

We have a set of plasticware, as well as paper and foam plates, depending on what we are eating, and whether we are having guests.

Yesteryear

My grandmother lived through the great depression of the 30's. She hoarded bacon grease like Scrooge McDuck hoards money. We never left grandma's house hungry but maybe with a little extra cholesterol
I totally understand the modern day diet concerns but the meals prepared by Grams with her bacon grease were delicious. I can't believe it's not butter? Bah, . gimme butter.
The vintage Airstreams are a visit to yesteryear when things were simple and life was good. Those green beans cooked in bacon grease were an absolute delight.
Thanks to modern science, we now live in a health-conscience society but isn't it great to occasionally enjoy a big Mac and fries? Totally delicious but sinful! You have the added benefit of sueing them if your kids get fat.
Do today's teens have any understanding of hardship? Do they know that sugar and panty hose were rationed in the 30's? Look around you at the overweight people you encounter everywhere. Most are overweight due to over indulgence rather than family dinner planning.
I am a victim of bacon grease indulgence but it's part of who I am and I shudder at the thought of a world with no bacon grease. Thanks, grams. RIP.

I went with the vintage tupperware that I found on Ebay Plates & Cups.
For the price that they get for tupperware I could have bought some nice stoneware, Ohwell vintage trailer and vintage tupperware just seemed fitting. I even got one of those neat orange skin peelers with the cups never use it but I can say along with the tons of other people that have one, I also have one now.

We used to stick strictly to paper ... but then my wife was down in a second-hand store in Taos when the property person for the film Off the Map (filmed near Taos) came in with silverware and plates. Cool, vintage-looking stuff! Now it's in our Airstream ...

Corelle

I bought a set of Corelle, white with a blue stripe to coordinate with the blue streak CCD decor, and some disposable plastic plates. I use the Corelle more than the plastic and don't plan to replace the disposables once they run out, except for parties where you need more than 4 place settings.

I always use real silverware (stainless), because even the best plastic stuff is mediocre.

Now, If you really want to be "green" you can buy your frozen foods in the boiling/microwave bags, get a good oven mitt, and when the food is hot, use scissors to take the top off the bag and holding the bag in the oven mitt, use a fork or spoon to eat directly from the bag.....

I had forgotten all about boil in bags. Great idea. Have to put that on my list, that and the brown in bags. I still have my Seal-a-Meal! (see, I am vintage!)Used to cook in large quantities then package in individual serving sizes. One pot of hot water and everyone could choose a different entree. Gee wish I had thought of that before, many dish washings ago! The homemade meals freeze and stack in a fraction of the space frozen meals and their boxes do. When space is tight we toss the boxes in the AS anyway.

Hubby came home today saying Corelle has a new square pattern. This is named stoneware so I don't know if this is actually stoneware or looks like stonewear but isn't this a great pattern for the CCD blue streak? It comes in lots of colors and white as well. All twotone. Found with a google search of Square Corelle and this was up at Amazon.
