Meals to Gift to Grieving/Busy Families
I am signed up to bring dinner for a colleague who just had a family member enter hospice. What are your favorite meals to deliver in situations like this? I don't know how many people yet but I'm assuming 6-8.
Factors to consider:
- should be packable in disposable containers (I have lots of deli containers and can buy foil pans, etc).
- should keep for a few days in case they don't eat it that night.
- freezable is good but not required.
I know things like enchiladas, lasagna, and other casseroles are a go-to in this situation, which is fine - but I'm also looking for more creative ideas, since I'm sure that they will get lots of "reheat at 350 degrees for 30 minutes" type of dishes.
