I love it when neighbors drop off homemade treats for us, for no particular reason. What a joy. And likewise, I love making delicious goodies to share. One of my neighbors, who has been the recipient of a number of treats, made me laugh the other day. I'd never checked in with her about food allergies. I'd routinely sent my boys over to her house with baked goods, and this time I thought I'd go too and check in. After enquiring about food allergies, she told me that they were 'equal opportunity consumers'. The phrasing was brilliant.
So to get back on topic, I'm always searching for sharing plates. The idea is, to present a neighbor with a thoughtful plate, and then the neighbor, in turn will pay it forward to the next neighbor with their own goodies.
