Meals/snacks for a grieving family

maplesugar | Oct 4, 201109:31 AM     37

My neighbours lost their 13 year old Granddaughter Sunday night....

Please bear with me...I know there are probably threads on this subject already but I'm still reeling from the news and can't find what I'm looking for.

I'd like to bring over food.... not casseroles because I'm sure they'll get enough of those. Ideas so far: Soup - maybe butternut squash?
Snacks that are easily eaten out of hand & can freeze if necessary: spanakopita, empanadas...
Cinnamon buns - somewhere in one of the Christmas food gifts threads someone explained how they gift them frozen -- the recipe I use makes 7 pans, if someone could point me to the direction on how/when to freeze them?

Any other soups/snacks/meal ideas would be very much appreciated.

Thanks all,
M
