Looks like Noritaki ? I also love China.  Tend to go for more informal these days, but nothing nicer than the full works.  Bought a French dinner set at an Auction.  $20.  Use it every day as the dinner plates are not too large.

The baked beans were really nice. Very much like tinned ones but with a little extra taste.
The dinner set is Royal Doulton. It was my Mum's everyday set!!!!!I am very lucky as I have 4 Royal Doulton dinner sets. I have Mum's everyday set that we use every day, her best one, a cheaper one I used to use everyday but it's missing bits now and MIL bought us one when we were first married. I love them all but fortunately we don't break much and so they will last for ever and ever. I love them and couldn't see the sense in tucking them away. I also have a collection of cup, saucer and plate that are Doulton. Some are mine but many were from Mum.

I agree cookie, you might as well use your beautiful dinner sets and your Mum would be pleased if she knew that you did.
Re the baked beans, I printed that recipe but I couldnít find out what a serving size was therefore I couldnít work out the nutritional values per serve.  Nagi normally puts the serving size on her recipes I thought.

It certainly is a lovely set Cookie. I think it's great that you use your china everyday. If family isn't special enough to use it, then who is? I use a Royal Albert set on weekends, DH won't use it through the week as he doesn't want to hand wash it.

Thanks, Michele and Cookie for the inspiration.   We are having a dear friend for lunch tomorrow.  I will get out the Wedgwood that we havenít used since we came to Invermay. The Sterling silver might be a bit over the top so will use the plated silver. Iím sure it will give us all a buzz.

Judy, I haven't made Nagi's beans, but when I make any recipe that says serves 4 for eg, I get around it by weighing the whole lot at the end of cooking and dividing the weight by 4 so I get the correct serving size and place that amount into containers.  I don't think of it as a pain to do as I'd rather get the size right.  :D

JulieO what a brilliant idea. I usually eyeball the amount and mentally work it out. Iím going to start doing that.

Yes Iíve done that Julie but with this recipe Iím thinking maybe I should only make half the recipe as I donít want too many bags of it in the freezer.  If a recipe is for 4 I usually get more out of it than that.

Judy, for you Iíd go with one tin of beans and a third of everything else. This will probably be enough for one meal and one over, or more.
DD bought herself a new printer yesterday and her new one has wifi. I love it, so I have been printing all the RTE recipes I love and will get Officeworks to make them into a book for me.

Thanks cookie, Iíll try that.  Those printers are great cookie, from the comfort of my armchair I can print out anything I see whilst browsing on my iPad.

DD was doing a face to face lecture a while ago and I kept sending things to the printer. It is a bit noisier than the last one but seems great.
