Recently I was at a family dinner at my in-laws' house. As we were getting ready to serve the dessert, my mother-in-law got upset about the fact that I had put a "kitchen spatula" on the table as the serving utensil. I didn't chose it for its aesthetic quality, but more for its practical use. I didn't consider any of us visiting to be "company". We were in fact just the immediate family. So why did she look so upset? I suppose I'm very practical and my mother-in-law comes from a time of paper doilies, frilly aprons and chafing dishes lined up like soldiers.
