    What would you do?

    Yesterday, my winter camping neighbour dropped by with a plate of Paleo scones she had just baked. We don't know her well - we winter camp together and see each other around - we've only socialized together a few times. Still, she's very nice and we enjoy bumping into her and her husband when we're out for walks or skating. So, back to yesterday. Knock on the door and here comes Susan with a plate of fresh from the oven, blueberry Paleo scones. I am SO glad W30 has given me a name for these kinds of things - SWPO indeed. I have never liked foods masquerading as other things. I'd rather eat a handful of almonds than some traditional wheat based baked good made with almond flour. Still, this offering (which, in addition to being a SWPO item, contained vanilla extract, sugar substitute and heavy cream - totally W30 non-compliant) was thoughtful, generous and kind. I really appreciate her thinking about us and sharing this gift with us. So - what would you have done? We accepted her lovely gift, thanked her profusely and threw them out. I have a real problem with food waste - I keep all my organic vegetable peels and waste in a bag in my freezer and, once there's enough, make veggie stock with it for heaven's sake! So, I feel tremendous guilt at throwing them away but think I would have felt worse had I rejected her kindness. I couldn't have re-gifted them - there are only 2 of us in the park at the moment. So, what would you have done? Have you ever had a gift like this rejected? How did that feel? Thanks in advance - this is really bugging me.
