Ways to Love Where You Live - #3

Happy Wednesday everyone, and thank you so much for taking the time to visit Love Where You Live!

Wednesdays are incredibly crazy days as far as my schedule goes, so I mostly won't have time to write a long entry.  I thought today would be a great day to continue with our 365 Ways to Love Where You Live.

#3 - Make a meal for someone in need.  It could be a neighbor, coworker, or friend who has just had a baby.  Maybe you know someone who has just lost a loved one and is too busy planning a funeral and the like to make a meal.  Or, it could be for someone who is moving, has lost their job, is studying for finals, or is just generally overwhelmed by life.  This does not have to be expensive or complicated.  One of the easiest meals I can think of is a pan of lasagna using no-boil noodles.  Soups are also very easy and can be as inexpensive or fancy as you'd like.  Casseroles are another simple idea.  You do need to find out if there are any food allergies in the family that you are making the food for.

I had planned on including a few simple recipes with today's blog, but am short on time, so I will make sure to add that at a later date.  A nice touch - if you have time - is to add a card with the recipe of the item you've provided.  I've found many times that people are very interested in being able to make the dish again for their family when time permits.

Have a wonderful day, and whether or not you have time to make a meal for someone, just remember to Love Where You Live!
