Message from Maggie:

03.20.17:  Our close friends Pat and Caitlin just had a baby.  We signed up to bring them dinner through the website  Have you seen this?  You can register to bring friends dinner who may be recovering from a surgery, a child birth, or just a general tough time.  Pretty cool stuff.  This recipe, from my mother in laws files, is an easy make ahead meal that can easily be reheated and requires little prep from the new parents.  I attached cooking instructions as well as brown rice and salad for sides.  Because Pat was such a fan of my Pop Tarts the other weekend I am also including a blueberry version and some vanilla bean ice cream.

05.31.16: My dear friends John and Marjorie just had a baby.  Because she’s recovering from a c-section and has a 3 year old, I wanted to bring her and her husband a homemade dinner they could heat up and enjoy.  Before delivering, I like to attach cooking instructions and bring along rice and salad as sides.

That's very nice of you! My husband's aunt brought us food after my c-section and it was so appreciated to not have to worry about my healing, my baby's wellness AND making a meal.

This is a foolproof recipe! Towards the end of cooking, I have also added defrosted frozen peas,or other leftover cooked veggies. This freezes beautifully.

So colorful. I'm careful with curry and like the subtly in this recipe. Wish you could take to Chicago for Laura and Tony!
