This post couldn't have came at a better time.
Growing up and up until a few years ago, my parents always hosted Sunday dinner w/ my sisters, their husbands, their kids and my husband and I, and our son. I'm the youngest of three girls and we all live pretty much locally. My one sister and her husband live about 5 minutes other sister and her family, and my parents are about 25 minutes away. sister that lives near my parents (we'll call her K..has taken on the reigns of hosting Sunday dinner. My husband and I do not always make it b/c sometimes we have dinner w/ his family or we choose to relax @ home. It's usually an unorganized mess @ K's house and we have too many frequent trips to the grocery store. We used to bring a dessert, or a side dish, but now my sister has been tallying up the dinner and expecting us to put money into this.
I suggested that maybe we rotate homes and whoever is hosting, foots the bill and maybe everyone could bring something (dessert, side dish, drinks, etc). It went in one ear and out the other.
Now K wants to go buy plastic utensils, plates, napkins and split it 4 ways between the family. She says this will only be used when we are having a cookout. I don't agree with doing this, b/c my husband and I don't go over every weekend. That..and I don't see why we don't use dishes instead of wasting and spending money on things we are throwing away.

Your thoughts...
