    I don't think you need to cook for newborns.

    Congrats on the new twins I don't feed a crowd usually and other than
    the usual lasagna, breakfast casserole etc. I don't make much in the way of
    make ahead dishes. However, I would think a casserole/hotdish would be
    perfect. You can Google the rfc archives using hotdish as the search term.
    You'll get a lot of recipes and ideas from the folks in here. You might
    also check out this site:

    Breakfast casseroles are an easy make-ahead dish if someone wants something
    in a pinch in the morning.

    -= Exported from BigOven =-

    Cheddar-Bacon Wake-Up Casserole

    If bulging stockings don't get everyone out of bed Christmas morning, this
    yummy make-ahead breakfast casserole will certainly do the trick.

    Mazel tov! L'shana tovat.
    Your first? It really *is* everything other grands carry on about. My
    greatest joy is watching my kid be a mom. She's very good at it.

    Meatballs, sauced any number of ways, or not sauced.

    Meat slices in a bit of broth, frozen in a shallow foil pan; removed
    from pan when frozen and vac sealed. Can be reheated in a vat of
    uncovered boiling water for about 10-15 minutes.

    Gift certs to the local pizza delivery place. :-/

    A 12-pack of beer, beneficial to nursing moms whose milk may not 'let
    down' due to stress or tension.

    Set the table at your house, have the food ready to come out of the oven
    in an hour or so. Wine or other libation of choice prominently visible.
    Go to twins' home and tell parents to go to your house while you stay
    with the babes for 3 hours or so.

    Meat loaf.

    Swiss steak.

    Beast stew (maybe leave out the potatoes); instructions to serve over
    noodles.

    Sloppy Joe mix. Make sure there are some buns in the freezer. Take the
    buns out in the morning and they'll be thawed by dinner for sure.

    Buncha carrot and celery sticks, rinsed and stuck in a plastic bag while
    damp. Should be crisp for a week.

    How's that? We aim to please.

    Yup. Also helps with the pain when the little Hoover-head latches on,
    especially in the beginning. Blue Moon wheat ale with a slice of orange
    goes down well. Also, tell mum to not be afraid to react if what the
    babe is doing hurts. Even a newborn is capable of understanding a yelp,
    a jump and a sudden denial of food source. Repeat two or three times
    and you've got a baby who understands "EASY!". This is especially
    beneficial for early teethers.

    This is an excellent suggestion. Although it might seem easier to have
    mum go to her room and sleep for a couple of hours while you take care
    of the babes, in point of fact, the sound of her baby or babies crying,
    even if only for a second or two, will trigger immediate let-down and
    she'll be up and down the hall looking for them before she's really even
    awake.

    Sliced grilled chicken breast, flour tortillas and shredded cheese for
    quesadillas.

    Hard boiled eggs.

    Homemade chicken noodle soup.

    Fresh fruit - good apples (pink ladies are excellent). Oranges.
    Strawberries.

    Peanut butter and/or Nutella to scoop with the apple slices

    Canned fruit - pineapple rings.

    Dried fruits - prunes, apples, apricots.

    Frozen fruit - whole frozen black cherries (better than sherbert) or
    blueberries.

    (If you're detecting a theme here, it's because it's important to stay
    hydrated and regular after childbirth. Fruits address both issues).

    Beverages - skim milk, decaf iced tea, herbal teas, OJ.

    I'll never forget the dinner an elderly couple provided me after my
    second baby. It was a large crock pot of vegetable beef soup, a loaf of
    bread and a huge homemade chocolate cake (The Hershey's recipe on the
    can of cocoa). It all fed us for an entire week and was so very welcome!

    Anything that you can cook in quantity, like chili, spaghetti sauce,
    stew, soup can be frozen. Things like potatoes, rice, noodles, pasta
    should be cooked separately and added when reheating.

    You could make most casseroles and freeze them also. If Mom is
    breastfeeding (some moms do even with twins), be careful with things
    like onions, peppers, broccoli, beans, cauliflower, and hot stuff. They
    can make the babies gassy/collicky, and that would be awful times two!

    Congratulations and Happy New Year.

    That was a wonderful gift for a family with a newborn. Over the years,
    you have still remembered it.

    BTW, the chocolate cake recipe that is on the box of Hershey's Cocoa is
    one of my favorite cakes.
