I've recently become a sexagenarian. I'm also plagued with a 40 year collection of dinnerware, serving pieces and bakeware.
Have been cooking for just the 2 of us for 35 years, with seasonal influx of family/friends in the summer and at holidays.
Tonight I made seafood crepes with a mornay sauce in 2 oval pottery dishes. Pulled them out of the oven, looked at the salad I prepped to serve alongside and wondered if any neighbors were around to share dinner with us.
Anyone else out there having problems "downsizing" ??
