Dear ones, I need your input, please.

Next week, I’m going to be cooking for a friend who’s recovering from surgery. I need to make things that I can do in advance so that someone in the family can reheat them with no fuss, and minimal clean up. And I’ve been requested to make comfort food that’s outside the standard Spanish repertoire.

When I cook for myself these days, I usually do something quick in a skillet, so I’m feeling a bit stuck! The one idea I’ve had is to do a beef stew, or perhaps ropa vieja. And that’s about as far as I’ve gotten…

I know a lot of you out there are gourmets, so please do send along any ideas you might have!

Gracias y gracias.
