I polished some silverware, that came from my late mother-in-law, this afternoon and before I knew it, it was time for dinner. Of course, I hadn't even thought about what we would be having. I quickly whipped up some crab cakes and pasta.
This is what it looked like before polishing, not real bad but bad enough.
Here it is after I got done.
This is the pattern, but I have no idea what it is.
Not even sure if it is sterling or silverplate. Do any of you experts out there have any idea what I have here? Sterling or silverplate?
Here is the recipe for the pasta.
