I really, really enjoy cooking – both for my family and for others. It is a way I love to love on others. In the last couple of weeks I have had two friends going through things where I thought a hot meal could be just what they needed.
Chili & Fixin’s
My go to meal to deliver to friends during the fall and winter months is chili. It’s hearty, reheats well and can even be frozen for later. I can make everything early in the day and have it delivered late afternoon / early evening. And, I usually double everything and feed my family the same thing for a couple of nights. Here’s what I include:
- Beef and Bean Chili RECIPE
- Honey cornbread (I love Krusteaz)
- Salad in a bag (this one from Publix is my favorite)
- Toppings like sour cream, oyster crackers and cheese
- Brownie Pie RECIPE (I use a frozen deep dish pie crust in a tin pan when delivering)
I send everything in disposable containers so there is nothing to wash and return, and I like to include paper plates, bowls, cutlery and cups for easy clean up.
Spoonful of Comfort
Sometimes we live too far from a friend or loved one to deliver a homemade meal. In this case, I have been loving Spoonful of Comfort! I usually send the chicken noodle soup with rolls and chocolate chip cookies. It is beautifully presented and both times I’ve sent it the recipient gave rave reviews.
After the soup is long gone, I think it is so special that the signature ladle is a reminder that they are loved.
From the beautiful custom note card and floral “wrap” to the hand-tied cheerful yellow polka dot ribbon adorning our signature ladle. Careful attention has been paid to every detail to ensure your thoughtfulness continues long after the last spoonful of soup has been enjoyed.
If you have a favorite delivery meal – either homemade or store bought, feel free to share. I always love learning about new companies and recipes!
