I am crushed, Auntie Pearl. Should I consult a lawyer or a private investigator?
Sleepless in Salem
Here’s a tip: Check the newspaper and bulletin boards for notices of church fairs and yard sales. When you arrive, make a beeline for the housewares table where you will find attractive plates at dirt cheap prices. It doesn’t matter if they don’t match your dishes at home. They will be used for those occasions when you bring a dessert, such as your prune squares. (By the way, check out my website, auntiepearlbakes.com, for exciting alternatives to fruit squares.)
Best of all, should you leave a dish behind, it won’t matter. And who knows, you might even come upon your lost platter. Don’t hold your breath waiting for your husband.
