Caring: It’s What’s For Dinner

When I had my twins, my cousin and her husband made an insane amount of frozen chicken enchiladas to have in the freezer. It was probably one of the most caring and best things anyone could have done. We had people bring us food when I had my fourth baby or when a baby had surgery. It literally made me feel so cared for. It also was wonderful because it took the guesswork out of dinner! It was literally something I never thought about prior. It had always been a thing to drop off food after a death in the family, but I never thought about doing it during other big life moments.

I started making a dish for friends that found themselves in a situation where dinner could be just one more thing added to an already full plate. Let me tell you something, it is something that is so appreciated, and it doesn’t take a lot of time or effort. I have a go-to dish that I make. Beef Enchiladas, I will post my recipe below. This is a recipe that I came up with one day for my family and realized it was the perfect dish to make extra pans of to freeze and share. It’s also easy to deliver hot and fresh!!! I usually deliver the enchiladas with a bag of Caesar salad mix to go along and make it a full meal.

If you ever want to help someone you know going through a growing pain or an injury or a new baby or even a friend who has suffered a death in their family-I’m telling you bringing food is the best answer!! Even if you don’t cook or don’t have time, order them food have it delivered! It’s easy and it’s so worth it!!!
