Food to send to a family with a new baby?
My friend across the country is having a baby. When I gave birth she sent me Omaha Steaks meals, which I greatly appreciated because a high protein meal was hard to come by with a brand new baby. Now she is giving birth and I want to return the favor. I would like to do something different from Omaha Steaks, but nothing comes to mind. All I could think of was Harry & David, but they just have fruit and nuts. I would like to send whole meals, preferably something fairly nutritious. I don't have time to cook myself. Any ideas for national companies that I can order food from? Cannot involve much preparation, and can't be obscenely expensive. In short, something along the lines of Omaha Steaks that is not Omaha Steaks,
i wouldnt send omaha....
i use www.stockyards.com
much much better steaks...
and other foods as well...
the last one of edible arrangements i had didnt last long...meaning it started going bad fairly quickly...
something that would be easy to prepare or is pretty much eat and heat..would be best with a newborn...
i remember us having some pretty frazzled days..
Many years ago, after our son was born, we received a gift of a Harry & David's cheesecake. We loved it. We were hosting a lot of guests, who wanted to spend some time with us to see the new baby, but we did not have time for a lot of grocery shopping. It's not nutritious or a whole meal, but I can tell you that years later I still remember the gift and who sent it. If cheesecake is too decadent, then some of the healthier options from H&D or Edible Arrangements would serve the same purpose,
What about a nice place near them that delivers? We did that for friends in another town. The restaurant didn't deliver, but they arranged if for us with a taxi company.
