  • ha...lets see. i dont even remember what i ate. TMI........ i remember that i wanted it to be lighter things because i was afraid of having my first BM. i didn't want it to hurt or hurt to wipe.

    But I would either ask them or maybe even try their favorite food.

  • I just made my girlfriend a pot of chili. I brought it over in the crock pot so she could just reheat and even freeze some. I made corn muffins with it too.

  • I wanted spinach casserole. It is full of protein and some green stuff. You can use spinach or any green vegetable that you want. VERY YUMMY. If you want the recipe let me know.

  • I LOVED when friends brought food. I had a friend who came to visit after both my babies were born and brought 3 giant sub sandwiches, they fed us for the visit, then again DH and I for dinner and lunch the next day. So awesome to just be able to grab something out of the fridge and prep nothing at all. But I agree with lasagna, or make some spaghetti sauce and portion it out and freeze it so they can make several meals, all they need to do is boil water for the spaghetti.

  • I got casseroles: lasagna, chicken and rice, stuffing and chicken, a noodle bake with chicken in a cream sauce, stuff like that. We also got sloppy joes one time. Homemade bread is always a plus!
