LaPiS: Hip to Be Square
Huli man daw at magaling, naihahabol din. Here is my entry for this week's LaPiS's theme Hip to Be Square. I love this square plate (I got only one, individual sold at WalMart) since I have at least 4 sets of plates already (not counting numerous white-only restaurant-type dinnerware given by a friend) and really did not want more clutter in my kitchen. I got this single plate only for purposes of presentation for some foods (especially good for finger foods or such pinoy goodies as pichi-pichi). I used it for the first time with my pandelimon rolls about a month ago. I can also imagine it a very good plate to use for a round leche flan.
And like what Ces says, it is indeed hip to be square when it comes to dinnerware. It reminds me so much of Zen (as what one commenter said), especially with this combination of black and red.
