Delivering A Meal

 I made a big pot of sausage lengtil soup for dinner one evening, and because there was so much of it, I decided to freeze all of the leftovers and use it as the main entree of a meal I had planned to bring to a friend from church who is going through chemo treatment. My problem was that the soup was just so unattractive, even though it tastes so good. I decided I needed to dress it up.
 I cut out muslin cloths to cover the caps of the Mason jars, and then took a bit of jute to tie around it.

 A little pink rosebud and a recycled card added just the right touch. On the tag I listed the website of the recipe I used so the recipient could check ingredients and/or use the recipe herself.
 Corn muffins dressed up the soup even more, as well as a white grosgrain ribbon and another recycled card tag listing the recipe for the muffins.
 Clothespins, recycled cards, and brown bags were perfect for the chocolate chip cookies.
 And a basket and pretty dish towel wrap everything up in an easy to carry and deliver little package.
