Meals for Others

So yeah, my blog is on life support. At one time, this filled a much needed void, and now life is changing. I am preparing for some big life changes, and although I love writing and sharing, the blog isn't going to be what it used to be. Don't worry, I'm not shutting it down, and you'll still have access to all my great ideas and recipes. One of the new things we are working on is starting a Greenhouse growing business. If you haven't already, PLEASE go like our Facebook page "From Greenhouse to Kitchen" --Click Here to Like our Page

And every once in awhile, I'll even post something that has inspired today. I've had the opportunity to help a lot of my friends and neighbors out recently, and I've gained so much from the experience. This week I get to bring dinner to a wonderful friend who has been blessed with twins--yeah!

When I had my twins cooking was the last thing on my to-do list, and lots of neighbors and family helped us out. It feels good to pay it forward and help out others. I enjoy a challenge and am always looking for new meal ideas--so when presented with the opportunity to bring a meal into someone who is sick, or a new parent, or whatever, I am often stumped on what to bring. My family eats a lot of spicy and "grown up" dishes that may toddlers don't eat, so what to bring is sometimes challenging.

Here are a few home-run ideas that may help you out when you get the chance to serve, or if you just want to try something new for your family. Enjoy!

Mac N Cheese
Swedish Meatballs
Katie's French Dip (at bottom of post)
Martha's Ideas
Fixings for easy sandwiches the kids can do themselves

And if none of that helps....Little Caesar's, KFC, Subway, and Carl's Jr. can help you out in a pinch.

Until next time....

UPDATE:  It's that time of year again! The time where we celebrate freedom, family, friendship.
