Paper Plate napkin holder Handy serving tip

Deb Crane


While grilling a sandwich for my son, I played around with the napkin and seem to always fumble while trying to carry the plate and napkin and condiments. I came up with the simplest idea. I simply slit a cut in the side of the plate, and the napkin stays put! One less thing to carry. I will do this from now on when I serve a buffet style menu!
I know, silly, but an easy no cost solution to an irritating issue. :)
