The Gift That Keeps On Giving

In the past I've mentioned how patients will bring my Chiropractor Hubby gifts of food. Just tonight he whipped out a lovely elderberry pie that was given to him today by a thoughtful patient. It was in a lovely white box and it was filled with a beautiful, tastey concoction. Friday I came home from work and another beautiful white box was waiting. Again, a grateful patient delivered it to Jack. What was inside?
Inside that big white box were these beauties. Unless you don't like ribs of course. But we do. I'm not a big fan of pork and rarely make anything else with the "other white meat" except ribs. So this was a fun surprise.
So into the "seal a meal" they went.."seal a meal"..a fun appliance that can entertain you as well as protect your food from freezer burn. That is if your life is as boring as mine.
Into the freezer..don't worry little ribbies...you're in good company. Besides ribs there were individual ham slices and of course, my green whatchamacallits (beans) are there too. See 'ya sometime this year! Now, please pass the "Sweet Baby Ray's".

Don't let Kyle see those ribs...

I'm with you with the seal a meal. It is fun to watch the air being sucked out of the bag.

I'm glad Jack gets to see fruits of his labor in more ways than one. He is such a great person!

It's cool that his patients bring him little gifts of appreciation. He must be a good doc!

How lovely to be married to a good chiropractor - free adjustments and a share of the loot!

Oh my gosh,it all looks so good. I'm sure his patients love him. I wish I could go to him. He would get Danish Pastry from me. Dick and I make them every Christmas and my doctor gets two, and boy does he love it!!

Well, I messed up this comment pretty much, didn't I? I'm not sure what I did, but it posted twice. I tried to delete one, but obviously that didn't work either. I'm just a putz when it comes to learning new things on the computer. Sorry.

Yum! Gifts are always good! I forget about our "seal-a-meal"! I need to get that back out if I have enough beans to freeze!

Sounds like the Little House on the Prarie days when the doc was paid in eggs and chickens and such. I don't think people give their docs anything here. I have never heard of it anyhow. Your Jack must be a wonderful doc as well as a man. Well, heck, look who he married!

I have always wanted a job where people bring me presents to bribe me into taking better care of them. Maybe when Mr. A gets a teaching job, his students will buy him gift certificates for Christmas so we can have nice, free dinners.

How thoughtful of your hubby's patients to bring gifts...kind of reminds me of Little House on The Prairie days! I would never think to give someone ribs...although I would love to receive them!
