Taking a meal to someone is always more affordable when you can share what you're making for your own family.
This tray holds baked ham slices, cole slaw, garden tomatoes, zucchini, and red potato salad I jazzed up with our leftover Green Garden Dip. Since it was too hot to turn on the oven, we also sent watermelon chunks and no-bake chocolate fudge cookies.
Serving another couple blessed my own family in return: they were delighted by all the "extras" I might not have made just for us!
Of course, the Reluctant Entertainer reminds us that you don't have to make a full-course meal to make someone's day.
