Bring on the Food!

Last week I took dinner to a friend that just had a baby.  I love to cook so this is one of my favorite ways to "help" if I can.  However, for whatever reason, I was having a hard time coming up with something that sounded good.  I usually take...Chicken spaghetti, green beans, bread, fruit and sometimes dessert (typically brownies or slice and bake cookies).  However, we had just recently had chicken spaghetti and whatever I make I just split or make double for my family that night.  I also noticed on the Meal Train there were several other spaghetti's listed, so I was trying to think outside the box.  

Here is what I ended up taking.  I'm thinking this is going to be my new "go to" dinner to take.  It all came together so easy.  

Chicken Pot Pie
Salad w/homemade Ranch dressing
Bread (Sister Schubert's)
Peach Cobbler with Ice Cream

**All disposable containers = nothing to return afterwards :-)

**Salad.  Easy to remove what you don't like.

**I always like to include fresh fruit--especially if they have a toddler.  I figure even if the toddler is extremely picky---between the fruit and bread, he/she won't go hungry.

Maybe this will give you a new idea or two.  I know from experience that there is nothing better than a home cooked meal for you and your family that you didn't have to cook or clean up after when things are crazy!

  Stay tuned for the Chicken Pot Pie recipe...
