Good food to bring to new parents?

Chris VR | Jun 14, 2002 09:53 AM

Close friends are at the hospital in labor, and expect to bring their new bundle of joy home in the next few days. I'd like to bring over some food for them and the hordes of family and well-wishers that will soon descend on them.

New daddy is Italian, and any sauce I might make will never be up to his and his family's standards, so that also rules out ziti, lasagna, etc. and anything else that would rely heavily on a good tomato sauce.

I wasn't raised with casseroles (dad was a meat and potatoes man) so I don't really have much of that sort of food in my repertoire. I'm looking primarily for one-dish meals that will reheat well. Cold dishes that could keep for a few days without getting unpalatable would also be good. And I'm sure that they would be happy to have something frozen to defrost later when the initial flood of food gets eaten.

Thanks for any suggestions!
