I have a friend who just had a baby and I wanted to do something special for her. Looking back on the time when I brought home new babies, I think providing care meals is one of the most thoughtful and useful gifts during the first few months of the new addition. For the person on the giving end, there is always the question of what to bring that will please the whole family. I think I found the answer. Fresa's Chicken Al Carbon is a locally owned takeout restaurant that serves hardwood charcoal grilled, locally pastured and responsibly raised chickens from Vital Farms. The family meal includes one whole chicken (2 marinades to choose from), homemade rice, beans, tortillas and salsas. They offer many fresh sides as well. Check out the menu here. Fresa's was just recently noted in Bon Appetit Food Trends for 2013 article. The meals I picked up were the perfect to-go home style dinners for my friend's family and my family as well. (Gina)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
