Taking Food to Friends

"I have a few friends who live alone, so I make larger batches of food and freeze leftovers for them. I date and label the contents on the front. This is something any family can do to look after others, and it's always well appreciated." - Caramia Sommers, Oswego, New York

"When I go to garage sales or auctions, I often buy a box of mismatched china pieces. I use the pretty dishes for potluck foods. After the meal, I tell the hostess to keep the dish. We're both winners, because she has a new dish and I don't have to take a dirty one home." - Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas.
