Hi Mindy,
I love the idea of making pots of homemade chicken soup and putting in the freezer– when you hear a friend is under the weather, you can leave for them (or their family), on the doorstep with a “get well soon” note– no germs traded. Isn’t that always better than a can of condensed?

I love that idea too Lizzy! Thanks for sharing.

Hello Mindy!
I once read that when Jackie O. was the first lady, one never had to request their favorite cocktail- it was placed in their hand before they could make the request. I love to treat people by remembering those little things people prefer- Coke or Pepsi? 2% or half-n-half? Milk or Dark Chocolate? Favorite candle flavor, flower, coffee blend, author, etc. Then whether delivering a meal or having them in my home, they know that someone was thinking of just what would make them feel welcome and special!

I just ordered the Avocado print, demi, but I’m working on a collection so here goes:

When I’m taking dinner to someone who’s just had a baby I always throw in a bag of my Easy-Freezy Chicken Nuggets for the older kids. They’re nutritious and tasty and just need to be baked for 10-15 minutes so they’re perfect for times when you need a quick lunch. Mom can just stash them in the freezer until she’s ready to use them.

Yes! Thank you ladies. I love all of the Tricks! I’m getting a treating high!
