Glamp or Camp...Paper Plastic Corelle

What kind of dishes do you use when camping? I know my husband doesn't have a preference. I lean towards an extension of home. Do you have a preference for wine glasses (assuming it applies).

We have a set of Nordicware Microwave safe plates and bowls that we use all the time for most meals. We also carry good old paper plates for that quick sandwich or snack.

We use melamine dishes.

We don't use paper plates, seems like a waste to me.

We err more on the side of glamping instead of camping.

We have a set of BPA-free polypropylene dinnerware that is unbreakable and microwave safe - cost about $15 on target.com. Still carry paper plates and cups for quick stops when we don't want to deal with dirty dishes while on the road.

We do it all. Silverware, glass plates and bowels, along with paper plates and plastic ware. Stemmed wine glasses and a couple of stemless plastic wine glasses. All depends on the mood.

Not sure what they call them because they were bought 20 yrs ago but the plates are those blue ones a lot of people buy for camping then we use regular silverware and coffee cups. We also have 2 glass Mason jars with stems like a wine glass attached at the bottom (Redneck wine glass) when we are feeling up-town while having our bourbon.
I've never been much for paper plates at home or at camp but will use one if that is what lunch is served on. I'm eating outside so a samich on a napkin is normally all I need.

I believe it was called Texas ware. We had a set if dishes and bowls that lasted for 2 generations of campers.

I looked those up and yep that's what they are. I like how they have the raised edge it helps keep any liquid or gravy from dripping over the edge.
Thank you

Plastic plates, cups, etc. when we're connected to water and sewer, paper when we're boondocking and conserving water and gray tank space.

We use one of those brushes that has the handle that you can pour soapy water in. Learned our lesson after our first trip out at how fast the tank can start to fill when she filled the sink to wash the dishes twice a day
