My wife and I, and subsequently our children have delivered meals many times on the holidays and I can honestly say I would be very pleased with someone bringing me the quality and quantity of food delivered around south La. This is not institutional meals on wheels stuff, but southern holiday cooking at it's finest (and it doesn't get any better than that).
Turkey and oyster dressing, yeast rolls, cornbread, tomato aspic, real cranberry sauce (although I will admit I like the canned stuff more), squash and shrimp casserole, all manner of salads and every dessert imaginable (heavy on chess pie, mmmmmmm), ham, pork roast, etc. Even though we are sterotyped as eating it at all holiday meals, you rarely see jello molds (but I like 'em so too bad for you and more for me
These meals are made from scratch, with care, and I really like taking them around to the folks. They really appreciate it and it certainly beats sitting around and watching football with my useless brothers in law or sitting and listening to my sisters in law whine about the demise quality domestic help
