Today's freebies

DD worked today, helping to move the contents of her store where she works to another rental unit within the same strip mall, right next door. Bigger space, more windows, etc. As they were leaving for the day, her boss gave her the following:

 a gift she didn't want, as she doesn't drink
A bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon blanc

the remaining creamers from a Box o joe that the boss brought for everyone who came to move the store. I estimated that we will run out of 1/2 & 1/2 this week,  so I had written it on the list. Looks like maybe it can wait until the end of the week now.

I've corraled them in a saved pickle jar.

Nice. We're on a pretty limited budget for groceries this Summer, every little bit helps, and wine certainly won't be a priority purchase!

Those are great freebies! I had a bottle of white wine that I knew I wouldn't finish, froze it in baggies in 1/2 cup increments to cook with.
Although last week I took 1 out and had a wine spritzer on a hot day - they don't completely freeze from the alcohol in them so mixed with Some orange seltzer they were a refreshing cocktail

Wine freebie - nice! That certainly doesn't happen everyday

Maybe she could use the wine as a gift or hostess gift if she gets invited somewhere. I don't use a lot of wine anymore either--we're at the age where our friends want to meet at a restaurant because none of us want to have to clean for entertaining!! (We're all over 70--it's just not as easy as it used to be. We still clean for ourselves, but it's more of a rotation thing, --- not everything gets cleaned at the same time as it used to.)

A good suggestion. DD isn't much of a wine drinker but I do like a glass upon rare occassion, often cooking with it. We'll use it, her boss doesn't drink so it was nice of her to pass it along to us. : )
