For A Friend . . .

A few weeks ago when I made the Cowboy Caviar, I had a friend who was in a little funk. She was struggling with an aspect of her life that cannot currently be changed.  I wanted to do something, even though I couldn’t really do anything, so I packaged up some of the yummy treat for her and designed a label on the computer to finish it off. I just wanted her to know I was thinking of her.

I upcycled a clear food container from Jennie Doezie’s package.  I think I need to have a stash of these on hand.  How cute would they be with a few large cookies inside, or some colorful candy? And those chips are gorgeous in a cello bag.  They just scream “I’m good for you!”

Are you like me? Meeting emotional needs with food.  I can’t help myself.

PS. Thanks for all the well wishes! After a weekend of illness, Hannie B., The Hubby and I are feeling much better, but Big C woke up with the achy body and fever this morning, so we’re not in the clear yet. Praying for RedDog and Owlie to stay healthy. There is nothing worse than a sick baby.

Great pick-me-up gift! Healthy, colorful and cleverly labeled! Hope it helped lift her spirits.
