I haven't ended up with different sizes and types but I do have solid colored plates and bowls I bought at Wal-mart. And they all match - just what I didn't want. Oh, well. The Wal-mart matching dishes are still more interesting and colorful and easier to replace.
Here's the thing. I bought a variety of colors including yellow, orange, teal, blue, green and red. But nearly every time I reach for a plate for myself, the yellow plate is on top. I don't like the yellow plate. I don't have anything against yellow - I just don't like the way my food looks on it. Sometimes I switch with one of the other plates in the stack but mostly I just deal with the yellow. What I want to know, though, is why do I always get the yellow plate???
Maybe it's time for something bad to happen to the yellow plate! Shhh - don't tell anyone I said that.
