Food (Dinner) ideas for a new mom?

The Oracle | Feb 17, 2009 09:39 AM

I'm part of a meal co-op and am taking a meal to a friend who had a baby 4 weeks ago. I've asked her for some direction (as far as food restrictions, cravings, etc.) the only thing she told me is to stay away from red bell peppers and anything spicy.

I'm completely drawing a blank on what to take for her and her husband for a meal. I'm thinking a lasagna or something along the lines of a baked dish would be too heavy (cheesy, etc). It would have to carry well, or be put together before hand, so they could bake (I live about 20 minutes away from them). ...I'm completely blanking.

Any mom's out there recall what they enjoyed eating during those first months? They've been getting meals every other day from various friends, although, I don't know what others have brought.
