Taking people food {part two}

As promised in my post on ideas for taking people dinner, here are some of my favorite recipes to take people (and to eat myself)! 

I can't stress enough how nice it is to include side dishes and alternatives to the standard dinner meal. Everyone loves a casserole and will be eternally grateful, don't get me wrong. But if you're lucky enough to receive multiple dinners and/or not in a position to shop, non- dinner food becomes scarce. As mentioned in part one, opt for alternatives like grocery runs or breakfast foods. 
  • Main dishes
    • Potato soup
    • Chili and cornbread waffles
      • Make cornbread batter and instead of baking it, put it in a waffle maker for a couple of minutes. Eat your chili on top! Take a couple warm and a couple in freezer bags for breakfast. 
    • Pasta salad 
      • Add bell peppers to this recipe and you're set
    • Meatballs and potatoes
    • Pizza
      • Try barbecue chicken pizza (sweet baby rays bbq sauce, onions, chicken and cheese)
    • Enchiladas
    • Chicken salad
    • Couscous salad (I'm obsessed) and sausage
  • Sides
    • Sweet potato fries 
      • Chop and deliver in a bag with instructions to add oil, salt, pepper and bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes
    • Chopped bell peppers 
      • These can be eaten fresh alongside dinner or frozen and used in another main dish (mandarin chicken from trader joes, anyone?)
    • Bag with smoothie ingredients
      • Collect all the ingredients needed to make a serving or two of a fruit smoothie in a bag. I like to use frozen mango chunks, a scoop or two of yogurt, orange juice and spinach. They can add ice, blend and enjoy. Easy!
    • Granola bars
      • Here's my recipe. Wouldn't it be great to have a stock of bars for snacks, breakfast, kids, etc?
    • Banana muffins
      • Another great item they can eat for dessert or snacks or breakfast. Selfishly I also like that you can easily split the recipe and keep some for yourself! (One of the worst things about baking a cake for someone is never knowing how it tastes!)
