Thought the best thing I could do for the new parents, (my son and his wife) was to cook enough food so that they didn't have to cook for the next week. That has meant chopping lots of vegetables and putting everything into containers for delivery.
My secret weapon for the broth is pearl barley it bulks up the soup making it more like a stew.
I made 2 pasta meals, 2 casseroles, stuffed chicken drumsticks, plus a huge pot of beef broth. I have to say the look of appreciation on their faces made the time spent worthwile.
When I delivered the food baby Jasmin was just finishing her feed and was off to sleep. My first grand daughter needed to be swaddled but this one is happy just to be covered up. A lot of the things I made for Monique didn't get used as she was born in high summer. This baby has arrived at the beginning of winter. When she was put down she was covered in a flanelette blanket I made for her sister. ( I posted a tutorial for making this.)
I bought a few pieces of this fabric in Houston (USA) and have searched for something the same or similar ever since, with no luck. It was a Moda fabric and the quality of fabric was beautiful. Hope this baby keeps sleeping like this.
