I woke up this morning and looked out all the windows as I always do to see how things changed over night (two neighbours gone, one added). I then noticed two bulging bags on my picnic table with a piece of paper flapping in the breeze.
The note said: “We go back to Holland today. Maybe you can use these.”
The bags contained:
- a 3lb sac of onions
- a garlic clove
- a bottle of olive oil
- two bottles of salad dressing (unopened)
- a bottle of ketchup
- salt and pepper shakers (filled)
- a bag of sugar
- starter briquettes for a grill (which I was going to go pick up today!)
- two large bottles of dish washing detergent
- a small box of laundry detergent
The bags rested on two badminton rackets and a birdie.
I can definitely use all of the bag contents and I’ll be able to pass on the rackets to a family with children at some point down the road (or even keep them; I like badminton!).
Hmm… all that garlic and onions and olive oil makes me think that I’m due to cook up a huge pot of spaghetti sauce, LOL!
I wouldn’t have taken in just any sort of food from strangers, but none of this stuff has an ‘ick’ factor and it sure would be a shame to throw out perfectly good food!Share on Facebook
