One of the practical ways to help a family with a new baby is providing a meal. It can be easy to get stuck in a rut when making meals for other families so some inspiration is good!
This question was suggested by a reader and I thought it would be fun to put our heads together and come up with a list of ideas. To get you thinking, here are some questions to consider.
- What is your favorite meal to give to a family with a new baby?
- What was your favorite meal you received when you had a baby?
- Did you get way too many of the same kinds of meals when you were on the receiving end?
- Do you have any tips or tricks for carrying in a meal to a family you might not know well?
Funny stories are also welcome!
(This post is several years old as you will see from the comment dates below. But the comments are filled with good ideas so I’m reposting it and bumping it up to the top. I encourage you to add some more to help us all out as we participate in this form of hospitality.)
