Genius Meal Delivery for New Moms (Plus, Asian Salad Recipe)

food_basketJulian James, a.k.a. “JJ” is one month old now and we’ve been surprisingly sane in the Culpepper household. Thanks in large part to a great friend who organized others to bring us food through TakeThemAMeal.com. Thanks Susan!

We’ve been showered with turkey burgers and feta tzatziki, pizza, pork tenderloin, a sausage tart, chicken salad, quinoa salad, this Asian salad (below) and lots of other treats. We’re forever grateful!

The visits also kept a regular stream of friends coming to us, which helped us from feeling too isolated. And as a bonus, we got lots of meal ideas. I’ve mostly devoured the food as soon as it gets here but took a minute to photograph this delicious Asian salad we got yesterday. I never make these but will start! Here’s the recipe. Do you have a favorite summer salad?
