A Pretty Meal

Today I created a fun freezer meal of Chicken Taco Soup to give to a family at my daughter's preschool whose mother fell and broke her leg.  Freezer meals are perfect to bring to a family in need.  They are easy to prepare and are stored in Ziploc bags, so are disposable.
 To dress up the dull Ziploc bag and make the meal a little more special, I took inspiration from this weeks Heart 2 Heart Challenge Sketch.
 Since the bag topper was rectangle, I had to make a few adjustments.  Can you see the inspiration?
 I even added a smaller topper for the chocolate chip cookies too.  I love how pretty the Stella Compliment Canvas shapes are.  They add such a special touch to these simple projects. 
 I put the entire meal in a cheap Albertson's reusable bag to contain the meal in a nice compact package to deliver.

What a clever way to dress up your freezer meal. Whenever I am called upon to do a meal for someone, I'm always looking for something that will freeze easily. Love the meal, love the toppers!!
