Default Re: What meal do you take to a family with a new baby?

I love this thread! We've never gotten meals for having babies because we moved so much we never knew anyone. But growing up we did if someone was very sick. I really loved taking meals to people! We always tried to not do something "typical" since it's not uncommon to eat certain foods over and over (spaghetti, stoffers, creamy chicken and rice casserole). I love all the different ideas!

I usually do:

Roasted chicken already off the bone, tortillas and burrito fixings already prepared (tomatoes, onions, sour cream...) so they can custom wrap their burritos. Sides would be beans and Spanish rice.

Creamy Turkey Wild Rice Soup, bread, large salad with lots of veggies and homemade vinaigrette.

Homemade Saulsbury or Sweedish meatballs, mashed potatoes and a salad with veggies.

As for desserts, it depends. Sometimes people are overloaded with sugary treats every night and sometimes they don't get any desserts lol. I usually go for a slightly sweeter muffin that can go for either breakfast or dessert. Sometimes I'll include a bunch of berries for snacking or a quiche for breakfast as well.
