hmmm looks like a great place for my second post! #1 fall back meal is my own basterdized version of dan dan mein. I make a peanutty, oily, salty, garlicky, hot peppery sauce, and slather it on cold cooked noodles, then sprinkle w/ lots and lots of green onion. Then chill and dive in! Totally eat/sleep alone food... But very satisfying. #2 when I haven't crock-potted in a while. Bunch of chopped onion in the bottom, then salt n peppered skinless chicken, or maybe pork chops, then a 28 oz can of drained whole plum tomatoes that I crushed w/ my hands, red wine, chipped garlic, minced carrot, bell pepper, tomato paste, real black olives and maybe some dried mushrooms. Hmmmm. Served 8 hours later w/ couscous. Leftovers frozen for lazy, desperate days.
