Backon subject though, I'm having leftover lentil soup, which tastes much better now than it did last night.
That's a common phenomenon, found with chili, spaghetti sauce, most soups, and even gravy. I think it reaches its zenith with Sorpotel
, the putative national dish of Goa. Not only does it feature most of the organs of a pig, but according to my Goan cookbook, it's intermittently cooked and refrigerated for seven days. Yup. Start it up, then after cooking, refrigerate.
Then, take it out and reheat, then refrigerate. For seven days. That's whatcha call 'inconvenience food'. Did everyone miss the "Sizzle" episode where I did Sorpotel in real time? It's a 3.3 Gb download, if you're curious.
I thought it was my most ridiculous recipe, but today, Mrs. Magoo gave me a book on preserving foods, and a recipe for saurkraut begins with "55 pounds of cabbage, finely chopped". Hey, I lurve saurkraut, but that's at least a year's worth, and besides, I need my tub for showering.
