On February 11th, my godson was born! He’s such an adorable little munchkin. As I prepared a gift for the parents I realized how often I google “what to make for new parents” and thought I would share my thoughts on the subject.
1) I made a Chicken Pot Pie. It fits in one dish, makes great leftovers and combines protein and veggies in one easy dish. I got the recipe from Allrecipes.com and it seems to always be a hit. The new grandmother confirmed that once again, it was enjoyed.
I also included a bottle of champagne as that is the standard in celebration alcohol and a large bottle of pre-made margaritas (what the pregnant mama had been craving).
Some baby clothes (even though it is the second boy and they don’t ‘need’ anything, I thought he needed a onesie that says “Little Brother” on it and you know that you can’t just only buy ONE cute tiny baby thing!).
A nice card and dropped it off to the exhausted and exhilarated parents.
