Thankfully, as a church, we invested in an aga style cooker a few years ago, so there are plenty of hobs and three ovens. Even with this, the use of three or four slow cookers is needed to ensure the food is kept hot.
Warming the plates before hand is an essential part of ensuring everyone's dinner is as hot as it can be for as long as possible.
I discovered a while ago, that if you heat up a stack of plates in the microwave, and then store them in a cool bag, they stay warm for quite a long time. I had been using our cool bags from home up until this week, but as I seem to have so many things to remember and inevitably end up forgetting something, I wanted to have one less thing to remember to take, so invested in a couple of cool bags to keep at church. These ones took my eye, so bright and cheerful! They did a great job, and at just 99p from the 99p Store they were a good investment!
As I loaded up each bag throughout the lunchtime, I thought how pretty the bags were, and then thought about how many other polka dot items I own. There seems to be a bit of a theme!
Here is a quick glimpse at some of the dotty things in my life!
