My brother and sister-in-law have a new baby and I am planning on bringing them dinner within the next few days when they come home from the hospital. Do you have any suggestions for meals that I could make at home and deliver to them? They live about 20 minutes away so it has to be something that travels well and could easily be re-heated, if needed, at their house when they are ready to eat. They are omni, but happily eat vegan food too. For some reason I am struggling to come up with good ideas of what to make for them.

Things like chili and stew always do well. I also like things like enchiladas (like the kale and potato enchiladas from veganomicon).

If you have Appetite for Reduction, there is a delicious noodle soup in there.

There's a whole thread in the Playground that's stickied with ideas of things to make ahead of time that freeze well, which may help inspire you, and I'm sure there have been threads before with ideas of stuff to bring others who are sick or new parents, that you may be able to find with the search feature. I agree with chills and stews being good; also if the mom is breastfeeding then high protein/calorie dense things, and things that are easy to eat one handed are recommended. The Playground thread has a great muffin recipe that I just made several batches of for my own freezer, since they reheat well and can be eaten while nursing, and I also have frozen a bunch of batches of soup. I would love for someone to bring me a pan of lasagne or manicotti type something with cashew tofu ricotta!

Lasagna and butternut squash soup! Throw in a massaged kale salad too so that they have something healthier in the mix.

If it makes it any difference, the pregnancy book I read suggested making meals-in-advance that you can eat with one hand since you may have a baby in your arms when eating... nobody wants noodles on a baby's head!!

Food for thought.. I had never considered that and previously gave our favourite curry to new parents:

Lately I've been sending spanikopita in pie form. It's fairly easy to make. Reheats well. And has grain/protein/vegetable for a full meal.
