World Kitchen and Corelle - Weekend winning and a giveaway

Weekends are tough.

Not only am I required to parent The Feral Threesome ALL DAY on account of teachers not being tough enough to handle them 7 days a week, but I also have to cook for them.

OMG with the hunger.  Always with the hunger.

Saturday night I cracked it.

I'd had enough. 

I'd had enough of being treated like a short order cook, and also, I'd had enough wine.

Enough wine to serve this up as dinner.





The small plate is for the rest of the family.

Deliberately placed only one profiterole on their shared plate, so that they could go head to head in a fight to the death with #1Hubby over who scored it.

The big plate is mine because I made them.

Plus I really felt, at the time, that it perfectly conveyed my level of disdain over my outrageous short order cook treatment, in a totally appropriate passive aggressive manner.

And, wine.  I was wine hungry.  Eat all of the things.  Extra points for cream or cheese.

Winning!

Since this post is supposed to be about the plates - aside from my genius, please also note the delightful yet simple pattern on the Corelle dinnerware, and also the convenient range of dish sizes.

Perfect for sticking the virtual middle finger to your family, with a visual dash of understated elegance.

Winning again!

Our backwards dinner saw dessert followed by some hastily microwaved pizza, when #1Hubby realised I was not kidding about the meal, and was not about to plate up a nutritious, delicious, filling main course that everyone deemed acceptable.

Also served on the Corelle Brushed Dinnerware collection in Platinum Silver.

Because I am all about the fancy when dining on microwaved frozen pizza.

With added cheese.  More winning!

The kids were a delight following their incredibly unhealthy dinner.  They were a mix of sugar high and apprehensive about when the punch line to what was clearly a set up would occur.

Caged animals.  It was a little like observing three caged animals who were elated yet slightly anxious.

Or so I imagine.

If you are dying of jealousy over my weekend winning of understated elegance, wine and microwaved pizza - then covet no more!

Thanks to World Kitchen, I have a Corelle Brushed Dinnerware collection to give away.

Now I am off to seek an invite to Tiffany the Tipsy Hostess' next dinner party.  Judging by this, she looks like my kind of girl.

 


Check out the Corelle YouTube and Facebook pages dedicated to Tiffany's shenanigans and tips.


Fist Bump, Tiffany.


And also Corelle, for creating an affordable range of dinnerware that I will not break, despite my best (wine consumption) and worst (poorly co-ordination) efforts.
