Ikea. You are awesome. Why do I not shop with you more often? I am silly. You understand me in a way other stores do not. For example, these plates. They're microwave and dishwasher safe. My mother-in-law sent me these after I told her about my plate crisis. They are great. She is great. Ikea is great. I am happy. She even tossed in the cups and bowls and utensils too. I was unaware spoons could be so cute. I was also unaware of the addictive properties of Ikea's website. I can’t seem to stop finding stuff I firmly believe I need. Like this lamp. And this rug. And pretty much all of the kitchen cabinets. Okay, maybe not the cabinets. At least not until we get the new house I secretly shop for on Realtor.com while I’m at work.
Not long after getting the Ikea plates in the mail, I discovered a couple other places that sell microwave and dishwasher safe plates. And none of them are made of melamine. Because MELAMINE CANNOT BE MICROWAVED. Tupperware has these. Every piece of Tupperware I've ever owned seemed like it could withstand a wood chipper so those are probably awesome. I also found these super cute ones. Or you could always just call your mother-in-law and let her pull a rabbit out of her hat like mine did.
Updated 5/26 - Target sells some, too. I saw them with my very own eyes. Circo brand. Next to sippy cups. It's pretty much raining plates at this point.
