For starters, many of our family members have limited access to certain ingredients or lack restaurants that serve certain styles of food. Therefor, some dishes and styles of cuisine are straight up off limits or out of reach for them.
We often bring goody boxes of ingredients with us and prepare meals for the whole family while we stay. It's a simple way to give back to those who have prepped their homes for your stay and can give a restless mind something to do!
Although it's nice to eat what they've lovingly prepared, food is a great way to show love and give back during a stay. Plus, it means they can pick up their feet a little and enjoy some conversation without worrying about something boiling over, while you get things taken care of.
