This Friday DH and I are bringing a dinner to a family from church who just had a baby. They have 5 kids, and her mom is staying with them-so that makes 3 adults, 5 kids.
What would you make for this amount of people, and thats easy?
Crock Pot pot roast with roasted potatoes and carrots. Just throw the potatoes in a big double-lined foil packet and have them throw it in the oven for a quick re-heat.
p/s...how sweet of you :)
lickitysplit:lasagna, spaghetti, some sort of casserole? like chicken and rice with the cream of mushroom soup?
Yep, casserole immediately popped into my mind. Easy (usually) and always a crowd pleaser!

All good ideas! If it were me, I would bring two whole roasted chickens, 2 bags of salad and a double batch of rice or throw 10 potatoes in the oven and bring over baked potatoes keep them wrapped in foil and put them in a double brown paper grocery bag. They will stay hot for 2+ hours.
I remember when I had my second, my mom's group organized dinner delivery for me and we got about 10 lasagnas. We still ate it and were so grateful for it, but now when I bring a new mom dinner I try to avoid a pasta based dish.
I'm a fan of easy slow cooker meals. We throw some chicken breasts in the slow cooker, cover with salsa and cook on low for 8 hours or so. Then we have it as tacos, burritos, taco salad, etc. That might be something easy to bring with a couple bags of tortillas, chopped lettuce, avocados or guacamole, and some rice.
BTW, it's really sweet that you're doing this. Nobody thought to bring us meals when we had my DS and it would have been the biggest help.
