We don't want 9" plates to lose weight, we want them because that's all that will fit in our tiny boat sink.
I've learned that 9" plates are considered luncheon plates, so I could get some of those. Or I could get plates at a restaurant supply place; they have all kinds of sizes. Or I could find oval plates.
I'm not sure what we will do about dishes, but I'm leaning towards oval plates. Which means I have to go shopping at department stores which I don't enjoy. Maybe I can find some online and have them shipped to my doorstep. That would be much better.
