Making Dinners for Busy People


I took 6 months off to be with my daughter who was going through cancer treatments. My friends were just great. They invited me for meals. So what I did was I cooked up a turkey, dressing, gravy, veggies, and mashed potatoes and delivered dinners mid week to friends who were working and enjoyed not having to come home and cook dinner. I put all the meals into disposable containers, so no dishes either. That was my pre-Christmas gift to them.

I hope your daughter is better soon I also did what your saying. I used to take meals like this to my father is law after my mother in law passed on. But when the kids were young I would make big meals and make individual TV dinners and put them in the freezer. I used the microwave plates that had air tight covers to freeze. So about three to four big meals a week. Different meals. With the different frozen meals I could actually take a day off from cooking. Each kid would have a choice of what they had for dinner.
