I go to a fabulous church. One of the fabulous things they offer is a meals ministry. These wonderful ladies make and bring meals to new parents, grieving people or people who have been sick or have a sick loved one. I have been blessed to give and receive in this ministry. Here is one of my favorite meals I made today to give, along with some tips I’ve learned along the way.
Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie
I took my standard pot pie recipe found here: https://culinarycravings.net/archives/66 and substituted rotisserie chicken and topped it with my favorite biscuit recipe found here: https://culinarycravings.net/archives/182
I always double my recipe so I have dinner ready for my family too.
The chicken mixture
Here are some other things I included to round out the meal. Salad kit and the makings for strawberry shortcake. I always include dessert. Always. Very important to lactating and really all other humans.
Other things to note: always use disposable containers. It really is so much more convenient when you don’t have to keep track of other people’s containers and make a special trip with a newborn to give them back.
Also, try to think outside the box a bit. I mean the frozen box. One week I had four frozen lasagnas. I was grateful for really anything, but people often go the lasagna route.
And that’s it. Try the pot pie even if you eat it all by yourself. You won’t be sorry. Also, if your church offers a meals ministry, get involved. It’s such a rewarding way to serve the Lord and others.
