Lots to do to prepare for my homebirth & our new baby girl. Been working at getting some of these projects done. In addition, I spent most of today cooking for a sick Mom in our group. I made a vegetarian lasagna, salad, dressing, and also brought over a cherry pie from Zupan's & some Santa Cruz echinacea & ginger juice. Next week, I will cook for a Mom who just gave birth last month. We started doing these meal trains to support each other during certain times--like illness or the birth of a child. It's great! Today was my first time making a meal for someone, so it took me a lot longer to get the best process down for transporting food. Also, I was limited in what I could make based on their dietary requests. I'm hoping next week's meal I make will go much smoother now that I've worked out some of the kinks!

Your meal sounds great! It's always hard to cook for someone else, especially if they have certain dietary needs! It definitely gets easier the more you do it. I was a nervous wreck the first couple of times because I was sure they were going to hate it :-).

I think making meals for people is a wonderful thing. People appreciate it so much. When we were in NY and I was on bedrest with Ian, a good friend of ours planned dinners for us, 5 nights a week, with people rotating nights for 12 weeks!!! It was such a blessing!

So good for you. I know that sick mom will really appreciate it!
