Q: Quick! What is a nice, surprise meal to make for friends returning from a trip?

They will be tired, and won’t want to cook dinner. I thought I’d leave something in their fridge that they can easily heat up. Maybe something with the slow cooker? They are not vegetarians, and have been cutting back the carbs.

Editor: Tracy, wow — how kind of you! What about this simple chicken recipe from a couple weeks ago?

It would keep and heat up very well. Really any braised meat or stew would be perfect — maybe with a loaf of fresh bread, or a small pot of rice?

Readers, what else would you suggest?
