make ahead meals

A while back I was given the idea of a little money making venture.  So after a super cool flyer designed by Chris, I started my business, "Errand Girl".   Basically I offer errand services to seniors in my area.  This could include grocery shopping, appointment reminders, meal prep, etc.

That was a while ago, but I'm very happy to finally have one client. Every other week I'll go over to their home and sit with the husband (who is ill) while the wife is able to get out of the house for a few hours.  While I'm looking more for jobs such as grocery shopping (so I can bring Kendall), as opposed to this one where I need to have my mom watch Kendall, it is still a good starting off job.  Yesterday was our first time and it went really well.

She also is interested in hiring me to bring a home cooked meal each time I come, and possibly a few for her to put in the freezer.  So I've been scouring my cooking blogs and websites and found this AWESOME post.  It couldn't be more perfect for what I'm looking for!  The best part is that she has a section at the end of the post in which she talks about how to tweek the recipe in order to not cook it right then.   I was so excited to find it!!   Here are a couple I've flagged that I'm going to offer as options.

Wow! What a perfect site for your need! It always seems risky to me to make a dish ahead of time that doesn't specifically say you can-- because some just don't do well made ahead. So knowing that these do is excellente!

Yay! Glad your little venture is off to a start :-) I've come across all kinds of make ahead meals on Pinterest.

Try taking you flyers to The Lakes Retirment home in Banning accross the street from Sun Lakes. They are in independent living in part of the building and some of your services would help! I no longer know the director but I used to work there so I know your service would help!
