It was my turn to provide morning tea at church, this morning.
My husband gave me permission to take his bottle of milk (the children and I are basically vegans) and use some of that.
He also gave me two unopened packets of a chocolate mint slice that a coworker gave him.
In case that wasn't enough, I bought a packet of vanilla frosting-filled cookies, which I'd seen for 99 cents at a local ethnic supermarket. My husband was going to pick up a few things from the shop on his way home from work on Saturday, so I asked him to pick up a packet, but only if they were still 99 cents. They'd gone up to $1.29, but, being the darling man that he is, he bought them anyway and said he'd cover the extra 30 cents.
Well, when I arrived at church, I found a hardly-used bottle of fresh milk in the fridge and a woman who attends infrequently brought an enormous plateful of home-cooked goodies. There were quite a few of them left over afterwards and no one else wanted them (I asked), so I wrapped them up in the foil they'd come covered in (the donee said she didn't want to keep the foil), brought them home, and have put them in the freezer.
I've also frozen the remaining unopened mint slice and put the cookies in a cupboard, so that when I'm on morning tea duty next - about a month from now - I won't have to buy any food.
