One of my absolute favorite ways to help when someone is in need is to bring them a meal. Food can be so healing not only for the body but for the soul. When the world feels like it is crashing down, the last thing anyone wants to think about is making dinner. From surgery to a major illness to the blessing of a new baby, getting food on the table is just plain hard.
When our lives caved in five years ago due to Justin’s ruptured appendix, I experienced the grace and generosity of our community. Friends, family and mamas I did not even know (they had heard from others what had happened to us) began to bring us food. Mostly homemade, some store bought and all delivered with such kindness that our lives were literally sustained by the love of others.
When my third little lady was born in 2016, we again were blessed with beautiful meals ranging from baked pasta to chicken enchiladas. One of my favorites was from a dear friend who brought over “breakfast for dinner!” What a delicious idea! My kids especially loved it.
Meals have become my mission in bringing a little kindness to someone else in need. It is something I can do, even with three little kiddos underneath my feet. Over the years, I have tried to pay it forward because I know first hand what a difference a meal can make. A few of my favorite recipes that feed a crowd are Taco Soup, BBQ Chicken Sliders, Baked Pasta and Salsa Chicken. Please see the recipes below. What are your favorite recipes to share?
