    acerast's Note:

    I like skillet meals for the blending of flavors and easy clean up. Here is one in which dried fruits and lemon add vibrant flavor. You can use any one of the fruits listed or a combination of them. This is from "Home Cooking" by Mary Poulos Wilde, who suggests it be served with buttered noodles and homemade whole wheat bread.
