Every new mama could use a little help with dinner. Here are a few of our favorite recipes for meals to take to new moms:
1- CHICKEN ENCHILADAS-This amazing recipe is a definite crowd pleaser. Be sure to omit the cheese if the mom is doing no dairy (or any of the family members have a dairy allergy).
2- GARLIC CHICKEN WITH ORZO NOODLES- This is a great kid friendly dish and a bit more mild for a breastfeeding mom.
3- CROCKPOT CARNITAS- Carnitas with all the fixings usually offer something for every family member, plus they are easy to reheat so mama can eat anytime.
4- TORTILLA SOUP- Another great meal to reheat and serve when ready.
5- PESTO AND SAUSAGE BAKED ZITI- We can't leave out a casserole and this is a great one! Take it uncooked and mama can freeze it to have on hand later or bake when they are ready and the leftovers aren't bad either.
Be sure to send everything in disposable containers because the last thing a new mom needs is to remember who to return dishes to. In addition to meals, items that can easily be eaten with one hand while feeding and holding a newborn – granola bars, muffins, scones, etc, are perfect.
