But here you're saying that if you don't have enough plates, you serve family style. So you must have a different concept of plating. Or have I totally misunderstood?
no, plating is what you thought it was.... sorry to confuse. by not having enough plates, i meant not having enough porcelin plates which i like to use to plate my food...

when i say family style i mean i just throw a big bowl of say mashed potatoes out there with a big platter of meat and people just serve themselves.
