- soup (black bean, chicken tortilla, or split pea);
- fresh baked bread from our bread machine; and
- homemade cookies.
These are all standards in my kitchen, so I have all the ingredients. I also use containers that do not need to be returned; much easier for the parents. My toddler loves to help add ingredients and the baby giggles as we hand her various cooking items. It is a great way to pass a morning with your kids. And the end result is a thoughtful and welcomed gift to the family. If you want to add a material item, lotions, soaps, or a gift card make for an easy to transport package. I also offer to lend a hand with the new baby.
