Whether mourning a death in the family, dealing with illness or even just feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities of a new baby, those going through hardships are comforted when others bring food.
There’s just something about someone caring enough to bring a meal to your family, ya know?? A meal you won’t have to worry about planning or cooking. It not only offers nutrition during a very trying time, but it’s like a warm hug from others.
But I’m always in a quandary when knowing what meal to bring to another family. You too?
Well you’re in luck. I’ve made a list of easy-to-prepare options sure to nourish, as well as comfort heart & soul.
I love herbs & spices, don’t you? But several years ago I ran out of thyme. So I went to the store to buy more. WHEW! You know, there are some herbs and seasonings you can buy pretty cheaply. A big jar will cost very little.
But for some reason thyme was pretty pricey (IMO). Heck, for what they were charging for that little jar of thyme, I could buy a whole plant and harvest from it year in, year out!
So I did…
My most-used herbs are thyme, sage, oregano, basil and rosemary. So I make sure I always have them available, whether fresh or dried.
A Facebook follower asked about my herb-drying setup. Y’all know I’m all about simplicity! So I thought I’d show how I dry my fresh herbs.
So many fun desserts are topped with pie filling. Not only for a burst of flavor, but also for pretty presentation. But today I’m just using it as topping. Buying a full can of pie filling would be a waste.
The good news is you don’t have to plunk down the money for that can of pie filling. You can easily make it yourself in minutes with a simple can of fruit for cheap.
