Our dishes are Fiesta, which means they are all solid colors but different colors. I cannot eat off a plate that is too similar in color to the food on it (yellow plate for Mac and Cheese, red for spaghetti, etc). I was trying to keep it a 'secret' until I realized it bothers my husband to have two same colored dishes touching each othr in the stack, so now I make sure they alternate when I put dishes away and he makes sure my plate and food 'clash' if he's getting a plate out for me. We laugh about it, but we sure don't mess with it!!
