I've been feeling slightly envious this week - my next door neighbours are off to Spain for several weeks. However, this has definitely been A Good Thing for me!
The first phone call came Thursday. Could I use the remaining contents of their fridge and freezer? Now I am definitely a girl who doesn't need to be asked a question like that more than once so I'm now better off by two packs each of cheese and butter, about a dozen Yorkshire puds, plus peas, mince and pizza are all happily in my stores.
The second call came Friday. How would I feel about the contents of the vegetable rack? I'd feel very grateful, that's how I'd feel! Which is why I'm now making a butternut soup and I've got all this lovely stuff in my fridge!
I think that must be a whole week's groceries for me - and all free!
(I shall make them something when they come home though.)
