Neighborly Etiquette


Something just had to be created with all these ripe figs . . .



. . . before these two men in the house ate them. So, I made this awesome (if I say so myself) French Fig Cherry Torte. And, being the kind who wants to share and give, I asked these two men to walk some over to the widow across the street.

The phone rang around 7:50 am and it was the widow across the street. She wanted to know if I'd noticed the plate she returned on the table in our front patio.

She awoke at 4:30 am to bake these blueberry muffins so as to not return the plate empty.



Neighborly etiquette says . . . when you are blessed in receiving a plate or bowl or dish of something special . . .



. . . you return the plate or bowl or dish back with something special.

That's a nice custom to have. I will remember that next time someone gives me a plate of something
