Diy summer food ideas
The beauty of these is that they freeze (and then reheat) individually, so you can throw them every in a large freezer bag and send them on their merry way for ultra homemade convenience.
I love making this one for friends because you can just pack every the meat up in containers and then deliver it with every the fixings: tortillas, limes, avocados, cilantro, salsa, chips, Mexican cheese, sour cream, cabbage and carrot shreds for topping, and this could go on for a endless time.
Red Thai Curry Sauce
Not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind for new parent meal deliveries, but the reason this works grand for sharing is because you can double or triple the sauce, cook some rice, veggies, and protein, and deliver them every in their own containers so that your recipients can make their own curry rice bowls. And this sauce is SERIOUSLY SO GOOD.
Skinny Spinach Lasagna
It’s the classic new baby meal: a large ancient pan of homemade, ooey-gooey, saucy lasagna.
This one is grand for any friends who can appreciate the meatless things in life. Or even not – add some chicken, sausage, or whatever suits your fancy to make it fit. Pack up a little green salad with it and BAM.
Giftable meal of the year.
Crockpot Chicken Wild Rice Soup
It’s mellow, creamy, and wild ricey. It’s the ultimate comfort food. PLUS it cooks in the crockpot while you’re busy during the day.
Come home and it’s ready to pack up and deliver. I generally send a loaf of nice crusty bread and a crisp green salad along with this one. Awwyeah.
Chicken Tamale Pie
An oldie but a goodie – you just can’t not love it. It’s so extremely simple to make and everyone loves it. Add a side salad, maybe some tortilla chips, and you’ve got a guaranteed winner.
Creamy Chicken Quinoa and Broccoli Casserole
Casseroles DO own a time and put, and this is one of them. It’s healthy and completely made from scratch – no cans of soup + lots of unused veggies + excellent protien. Bake, cover, and deliver.
