Some great tips for taking meals to others-

Intouch magazine has a great article this month on taking meals to families, lots of great tips in there!  Some quick ideas from the article:

-take premade pizza crust, sauce, and cheese (I'd add some toppings and a salad....)
- take groceries.  Cereal, peanut butter, milk and bread might be even more appreciated than a casserole, if grocery shopping is the last thing on their mind.
- use disposable aluminum pans, so no one has to worry about clean up/getting the dishes back
-call before visiting, ask if they have time for a 15 minute visit.
