View Full Version : Good make ahead meal
06-03-2002, 01:17 PM
I've volunteered to make a meal for a family in need and I am looking for some good ideas about what to make for a main dish. It needs to be something that I can cook ahead of time. And that is easy and good when reheated. There aren't any really restrictions except nothing real spicy. Anyone have any good ideas?

Chilli, stew, lasagne - these are all dishes which taste much, much better when a few days old.

Soups and quiches are good too, as well as chicken casserole type dishes like chicken tettrazini or chicken divan. (Hey, we know each other! Isn't that cool?:)
If you click on the search button at the upper right corner and type in make-ahead casseroles, you'll see some threads with other links. I'm sure there are other search words you could use that would be even more helpful. Or call me---I can bring you some other ideas on Sunday if that's not too late!

Thanks for the search tip. I'm going to give that a shot. I thought I would look for something different. Then double it. One for us and one for the other family.
Too funny! What a small world. I saw your name and was like "No way". I was going to say something last Sunday, but I didn't see you.

I made the Swedish Meatballs and they were a big hit!
