Red face ISO a meal to bring to new mom

I need to take my Sister in law and brother in law dinner because they just had a new baby. Any ideas on what I should make to take to them?

I always take people chicken enchiladas because it's easy to make a lot, you can make it in advance and just heat it up when you are ready, and it tastes good as leftovers. I bring jell-o for the kids.

An Italian-style casserole is always good. Sliced Italian sausage, two colors of bell peppers, onions, garlic, marinara sauce and short pasta like penne or rotini. Also easy to heat up and makes great leftovers. HTH.

Anything you do well and they like. I usually do a one pot meal type thing (less washing up for them). It does not need to be fancy - just good and filling.

Congrats on the new niece/nephew! :)

I about always take lasagna, French bread, salad, and a one-dish dessert of some sort. The last time, I added a frozen meal too... something she could put in the freezer and use later when meals stop coming in. The frozen meal was a turkey loaf, twice-baked potatoes, frozen peas, and a frozen dessert (German chocolate cream pie).

What do they like to eat that you can cook?

We usually go with baked ziti or some type of Italian casserole. But any type of casserole will work.

Or baken beans with kielbasa, jazzed up with maybe a couple of types of beans, onion, brown sugar or molasses, some vinegar, dry mustard and a tad of liquid smoke.

Chicken and dumplings with rice.

Just pick out something you like to cook and they like to eat.
