I had a hankering for a sundae tonight, ended up with a blizzard. Funny how sweet cravings are sometimes. So for date night my husband and I went for an ice cream cone.
Sometimes I really get a strong urge to go behind a store, even if I’ve been there the night before. Skulking behind alleys really sharpens your street smart skills and sometimes your intuition. Sounds corny, but it’s true for me.
So we stop behind one of the stores on our route and we found some serious goodies. Easter candy, socks, new underwear for adults and tots, about 10 sewing kits (all intact and new), place mats, freezer pops (those will come in handy in the hot summer) and one of my favorite, honey buns.
We ate honey buns as kids. I can remember (and this is dating myself) when they were a dime a piece. The ones we found tonight were chocolate covered. What a delight.
So tonight when we came home, we decided to have a little snack. I made one of my favorite dips. You take a small container of velveeta and a can of rotelle tomatoes and chilis. I don’t like chunky salsa so I blended the rotelle until it was a paste. My husband had never had that dip before. He loved it. It’s a good quick dip when you have chips (and we have many bags left of dumpster diving Tostitos). And for dessert? A chocolate honey bun cut in half. It was heavenly.
God has really blessed me with the insight and gift of diving. Diving allows me to save money, keep perfectly good items out of the landfill and help others with my finds who are in need.
