‘Meal’ Train

July 31, 2019


I forgot to write a post last night. It wasn’t a notable day. We’ve been dealing with lice at school, but that’s a sad story I don’t want to talk about. ( Instead, I’ll tell you about a meal.

One of our teachers had a baby by unexpected C-section, and her sister set up a meal train. I went ahead and signed up, with a note to the family to ‘not get your expectations up’. I did the best that a non-cook like myself can do: I warmed up a pre-sliced ham, made a box of scalloped potatoes, baked biscuits from a can and brought along a can each of corn, peas and beans. I had to cook it all at work, so people walking by complimented me on the delicious smells. I just smiled and showed them the box and the can.

Anyway, it was all mostly hot at the same time, and I drove it over in the toaster. The baby is cute, the mom is recovering nicely, and the husband seemed to be glad that there was food. See? It’s not a great story.

    Mmmm… I have had just a box of scalloped potatoes for dinner. I would have been very happy with what you made.
