Time Honored Tradition

It's a time honored tradition in these parts to provide food to families who have lost a loved one.

I'm writing this post for two reasons:
  1. The Pioneer Woman mentioned funeral potatoes in this post. I can't wait to see the recipe.
  2. Our neighbors lost a loved one recently and I prepared my standard funeral meal for delivery.
We typically provide the following:
  • Sister Schubert's Dinner Rolls (frozen)
  • Salad in a Bag
  • Overnight Chicken Casserole (recipe as follows):
Overnight Chicken Casserole *
2 cups chicken (cooked and boned) {or canned}
2 cups macaroni (uncooked)
2 cans mushroom soup, undiluted
1 cup milk
1 cup chicken broth
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped (I use the entire pepper.)
1/2 lb grated cheese

Mix all ingrediants together and put in a 9x13 pan and refrigerate overnight, covered. Uncover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Do you have a favorite dish or meal you prepare for your neighbors or friends in this situation?

What is your time honored tradition?
