I received this comment from Carmel after I posted about how to send a meal to someone in need (click here for the previous post – the comments have lots of good thoughts as well).
I would really like to know peoples ideas for a good meal to send to others. I often get stuck for inspiration – how many lasagnas does anyone need? Carmel 3/26/09
It really got me thinking because yes, we have received a lot of lasagna in our day. Now one thing is for sure – we love lasagna but it made me curious about your ideas for good meals that can be used for delivery to families or people in need.
Not only would I like us to create a collection of ideas and recipes here in the comments but tell us some of the things we should keep in mind when delivering a meal to someone – tips or other ideas that I didn’t talk about in the post or things to why your meal idea is helpful to a family or individual.
a sample of some of the stamps you could receive
Leave a comment with your thoughts about this and I’ll randomly pick a winner to receive a prize: dinner for a week from me! Just kidding – how about something a little easier to send you: a few of my “Post Script” clear stamp sets. Now that’s a juicy prize! Post your comments before Wednesday, April 8 at 8 am PST and I’ll draw a winner.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I thought about playing an April Fool’s Day joke on Cole – something like making his formula green – but I figured he wouldn’t catch on so I abandoned that plan. I’m thinking we’ll hold off on pranks till he’s a little older.
But April 1st is always a day of celebration at our house for another reason. Click here to find out why.
We’ve have a good week here at the Hall house. Here’s a few of the photos from my Project 365 of Gratitude – some of the photos are taken with my Canon SRL and some with my iPhone – whatever I have handy is what I use. I don’t mind the lower quality photos with my iPhone – I’m just glad I have something to capture favorite moments.
I got our tax info sent to the accountant - I always love the day that is done
I'm grateful there is a ceiling fan in every room of our house because Cole has a "Fan Fetish" and is totally obsessed
I'm grateful Cole likes to hang out with me while I work at the computer - this is supposed to be his "Activity" time...clearly he's caught the vision of the plan
I've been working on getting us a 3-month supply of food that we normally eat which we will then rotate and replenish as we use it - I'm grateful for this beautiful sight!
I'm grateful for a Mom who cherishes my little man
I'm grateful our stroller's handle can flip both ways because it makes it easier for Jason to pull him - Cole is holding the mail for us
We’ve had some great weather and are getting out and about a lot more these days. Cole is really focusing on us, is more alert, likes to smile, and is ticklish. He is also getting HUGE! He’s one hefty kid – I think it’s all in his cheeks.
Have a great week – we have family in town so we’re partying it up all together. We had everyone over to our house last night – 24 of us. It was a blast. How do I choose just one photo from the night for my Project 365 of Gratitude?
