What are some good ideas for meals to take to new moms, sick, etc.?
Casseroles & tossed salads
meatloaf, baked potatoes, veggie or salad
if they're sick....homemade chunky chicken soup and a fresh loaf of bread
Don't forget dessert!
Crock Pot dishes
If the women are asked to take a meal over, I usually take a meal that can be enjoyed cold. Like a hearty cold pasta salad along with dinner rolls and maybe some sliced hard salami. Granny cake for dessert & some beverages.
If I have a designated day to take a hot meal, I pack a big roasting pan (divided in 3 sections) with homemade chicken nuggets, pizza rolls, and mini egg rolls. A platter with banana bread and strawberry muffins or sugar cookies. Really good when they have small children to feed.
ziti pasta , sala.. Fluff dessert
Chicken soup , bread or crackers
Soup, enchiladas, or something that can be frozen
I usually take a casserole or baked pasta dish like baked ziti, baked spaghetti that can be heated up when needed or frozen. I write the directions for each on aluminum foil to cover the pan. I also like to take it in a disposable pan so they don't have to return a dish.
Tamales, enchiladas, some fruit cut up. Maybe a cake. Soups
These are awesome ideas!! My cousin just had a baby and so I'm trying to come up with ideas!! I really like the idea of a cold meal and the appetizer set up! I'll be going a couple of times, so I will use some of these!!
