Bring Home the Bacon

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 12:53 am

When my husband told me he would bring home the bacon, I thought he was being old-fashioned. Tonight we got 2 large packages of bacon. Yes I love bacon. Love it. Don’t eat it that often, but I do love it.

Inside the one bag (which was cold) was dozens of packages of cold cuts, bacon, cheese, cream cheese, grape juice and sweet tea.

We took some food to our local food bank that we’ve been giving food to. When we walked in tonight, we were aghast. Someone or a group had given them an ENORMOUS amount of food. Chips, candy, baby food, diapers, formula, juice and other stuff too numerous to mention. I was so happy to see that I almost cried. They wanted to give US some of the food. We both said no, we have plenty of food, enjoy it. You deserve it.

That is the power of manifestation. The energy of our giving food had created a 100th monkey effect of giving and generosity.

By the time we got home, I was famished. I didn’t know what to fix. I was tired, hungry, sweaty and dirty from hauling all that food out of the dumpster, cleaning it off and putting it away.

So dinner tonight was fish tacos (cod fish) and a strawberry margarita.

Life is good.




  1. And the Law of Reciprocity strikes again.
    You are getting an over-abundance of what you give… as it should be.

  2. Bless you and your wonderful way to give back to others. When I think of what kinds of eatable foods that just go to waste it makes me mad and sick. So many starving in this world and yet the waste continues.. Sad terribly sad. 😦

  5. Carol, sadly I only get a small fraction of it. Large amounts of food waste in the dumpster produces methane, which can be harmful to the planet. If less people are hungry, they function better. It’s been proven that when little kids go to school hungry, their little brains cannot function. There is a local factory here that feeds it’s employees breakfast. Many of these people skip breakfast so their kids can eat. The company found that it was cost effective to feed their staff a good hearty breakfast so they could actually work and get their job done.
