Re: Meal Idea(s) for a new mom
we actually asked a friend of ours what they like to eat... turns out she doesn't eat red meat, he does, she is strictly chicken and fish, so we made some smaller meals for dad (who is theone in her house that does ALL the cleaning) to take to work.
I made: Chicken Slop (chicken casserole more on the mexican side)
Taco pockets (eggroll wrappers with taco filling that you bake in the oven)
Green Chili without beans, and with beans (because the baby was fussing over beans, but dad loved them)
Spaghetti Bake... YUMMY
Lasagna (spinach) and plain
and left her several recipies in a 3 ring binder with easy quick meals (as this is her first and I already had 3, and she didn't cook much before baby)
I also took 4 desserts...
I took everything frozen with directions to thaw and cook on them so they could decide in the morning what is for dinner, take it out, put in fridge throw in oven and they were all in disposable trays so they could toss the tray... they also recieved 2 huge packages of paper plates and plastic utinsels for the shower.
