A friend in need . . .

Hello, friend,

I hope your week is off to a good start. 

Yesterday I spent most of the day cooking a couple of meals for an old friend whose daughter is having major surgery tomorrow. We met when our daughters were in the same kindergarten class and a lot of years have passed since then! It seemed like sparing her a few hours in the kitchen while all this is going on was a worthwhile effort. So, around noon the cooking began. Here are the results:

The large pan has a chicken and spaghetti casserole in it. There are two containers of salad, a loaf of bread, butter and another loaf of pumpkin bread.
The second meal is pot roast, potatoes and carrots, green beans cooked with purple onion slivers and walnuts, gravy and an apple pie. Nothing fancy, but dishes most people are used to and like well enough.
And here it all is, packed to take to her house. I am still tired today, all that standing on my feet most of the afternoon about did me in, but it was worth it if it helps this family while their concern is with a loved one. 

Have a wonderful week!

I would call this fancy! Homemade apple pie? Awesome! I know your friend was touched by your thoughtfulness.
