    Default Meals for a new family

    A friend has had her little girl yesterday morning. Her plans were to come home today if she can so
    I thought I might make her some meals. Does anyone have any recommendations besides the usual pasta bakes (that's pretty much all I can think of)?

    How about some snacks, I have a 9 day old DD and the things I've found invaluable are bananas, apples, lactation cookies, muffins, vitawheats/crackers and hommus/avocado, nuts. I don't know if she's breast feeding but I'm hungry constantly and can't always manage to get downstairs to heat up a meal, but have an array of easy/healthy snacks upstairs to keep me going until I get the chance.
