Gifts for Dinner

Both Husband and I have very generous families. We happened to get two thoughtful care packages recently from family for Halloween. And great (family) minds think alike because they both sent us yummy goodies. Happily, we are eating something from both care packages tonight for dinner. For the main course, I’m using the pasta from one care package to make a yummy Greek pasta salad. The pasta is in the shape of leaves and pumpkins (very fall-ish). I’ll add some fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, topped with cheese and an oil and vinegar salad dressing (and maybe some crumbled bacon). For dessert, we’ll be snacking on these cute gummies that are in the shape of jetplanes! It's such a neat gift idea, and I had no idea they even existed. They are almost too cute to eat. (Notice I said “almost” because, truthfully, it took a lot of willpower for me to have not devoured them by now.) Thanks again to our families for our sweet care packages!

That is so nice! It's cool that your family sends you care packages like that. Maybe I'll start doing something like that for my family.
