What I'm looking for is the meal you fall back on at the end of a long day when you want something satisfying but don't have the energy to do anything elaborate. Ingredients would ideally be easy to find. If I can assemble ten of these meals, I'll be set for life.
My go-to meal is:
Can of chili (ideally purchased in last ten miles of riding)
Boil in bag rice
Bag of Cheez-it crackers.
Obviously, I don't need to post directions.
For a temporary riding partner I rode with once it was:
Cous-cous cooked with bouillon
Foil-pak or can of Tuna
Again, obviously no directions required. I did note later in the ride that there are large swaths of the US where cous-cous can not be found.
So, anyone, anyone...
