Growing up with a family of eight gave me plenty of opportunity’s to learn to make meals. Our family was involved in 4-H learning to cook and bake. Traditionally, Saturday was the day to bake and clean. I really enjoyed the baking part and not so much the cleaning! The kitchen became my happy place, and I enjoy making meals for others when time allows. I especially enjoy bringing a meal to a family with a new baby. It’s a wonderful way to meet young families and get my baby fix, too! When making a decision on what kind of meal to make consider the family size and ages, any likes or dislikes. Consider the time of day the meal is delivered, hot or cold, fresh or frozen. I have to remind myself to make it simple. It takes more time for preparation when you are old!
I also have been blessed to receive meals from others when my husband was ill and after his death. I know how much those meals were appreciated when I had little time or energy to think about making a meal.
