New Chopsticks

Posted by Picasa

Chopsticks are usually sold this way. They are packaged individually. However, a couple of years ago, I found some that were sold in a bundle of ten pairs. They were all alike. Big Sister thought it was gross. She recently requested that I buy a pair for each family member. She said that was the Japanese way to do it. I knew that, but it is so much easier to find a pair of chopsticks when they are all alike!

I bought these for Papa, Little Brother, and Big Sister. I'll probably buy them another pair, too. I'll use the old ones. I have ten pairs all to myself!

The pair in the middle cannot be put in the dishwasher. I hope we remember that!

Do you have just one set for each person or many?

I'll probably buy another pair for each. My in-laws have quite a collection downstairs. When we eat down there, we are given any old pair.
