Whether someone you know has just had a baby, moved to a new home, had surgery, or is grieving the loss of a loved one, there are many times in life when meal preparation is difficult. At these times, hospitality may not be what we traditionally think of it as. Rather than inviting people into your home, sometimes the best way you can love and serve someone is to take them out to dinner.
But then the question arises.
What do I do? How do I get it there without it all ending up on the floor of my car? What if they're allergic to something I'm good at making?
Well, rest assured, dear friend. We've got some hospitality tips that will make your pick-up experience easy, efficient and stress-free.
We love making soup for many reasons.
It's easy and inexpensive and can be made in bulk. Check out this recipe for 8 cans of tortilla soup. You can also use canned chicken instead of ground beef if you want to make it more like chilli. This soup takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish, is super easy and gets compliments every time.
It's a leftover dish that warms up nicely. During the season when people are bringing you food, you will most likely not have a set meal time. The soup doesn't have to be eaten right away, so it will be a hit no matter when you can get it. Besides, all that good stuff in one slow cooker? Let's sign up. This potato soup recipe has only 5 ingredients and gets two thumbs up.
It is a crowd pleaser. With something as classic as chicken noodle soup, you really can't go wrong. It's a great choice for picky eaters or those with young children. We love this recipe from Ina Garten.
However, we acknowledge that every plan has its limitations. The main problem with transporting soup comes from transporting it. It's hot and it jiggles, potentially soiling everything it jiggles. We have some tips for taking soup from your house to another location.
Mason jars. These jars work really well because the soup is still hot when you pack it; no waiting for it to cool! They also seal very well so they keep well. They also seal well, so they prevent spillage. Double win.
Put it in your pan and transfer it to theirs. That way you can take your dirty pan home and still use your dishes without any pressure to get them returned quickly.
Make them in a bigger pan than necessary. Even if you only plan to make a few portions, use your biggest pan for that. There is space allocated for stirring when you drive with it, but it is less likely to spill over the edges.
We hope these tips will help you the next time you bring a meal to a friend
