But IME the heat often fades significantly after an overnight in the fridge!


It would have taken a lot more than a night in the fridge to bring this back to edible heat. But it wasn't just the heat. I can do chilli heat. It was just a total mess on every level. And is now giving the local pigs an experience they didn't expect.

The rice I had prepared was refrigerated and used tonight.

LOL! I wonder if our porky friends will complain about the after affects?

Pre-spiced pork!?

An old reliable quickie is linguine with white clam sauce -- lots of olive oil, canned clams with juice, white wine, garlic, handful of parsley. Sauce is ready by the time the pasta is boiled and drained.

But if I'm really feeling drained and low, grilled cheese sammiches (with processed cheese!) are the bomb. Might have a salad, or a bowl of tomato soup, or a side of pickles and chips, but those aren't necessary, just nice. There's something about the crispy buttery toasted bread filled with melty warm cheese that is the ultimate soul soother.

Just though of something: Quesadillas ... what could be simpler? Add a quick salad if so inclined, pop a Negra Modelo ... bada bing!

Steak(onglet or rib eye), mccain oven french fries and some leaves washed down with dijon mustard, wholegrain mustard and a nice full bodied red. Bliss in 20 mins, I probably have it once a week!

A panini press is a godsend for this kind of scenario. In the five or ten minutes it takes to preheat, you can prep your sandwiches, from the simplest possible grilled cheese to as fancy as you want, limited only by the bread you have on hand and whatever you have in the fridge.

This is good for instant calming down from stress :)
