Empty Food Containers

Whenever you visit someone's house and the time comes to leave, you'll more often than not be offered something to take home with you. Accept, as it will be meant in the best of possible intentions; it's just simply Arabic hospitality.

When you return to the same host it's customary to take the plate or bowl back with you. However the cultural rules say you must have filled it with something edible; sweets or nuts, snacky things.
