6 T. soy sauce, divided (with extra available)
6 T. olive oil, divided (with extra available)
8 oz. imitation crab meat, in bite size pieces

In skillet, sauté onion rings in 3 T. olive oil. Sprinkle on 3 T. soy sauce. Cover and sauté over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add imitation crab. Sprinkle on another 3 T. soy sauce and 3T. olive oil. Do not let pan go dry. It should be juicy. Let simmer for 15 minutes or until onions are caramelized and crab is nicely browned and crisp along edges. Toss with hot pasta. Serve.
I like to serve it with a salad and garlic bread.
Any kind of fried rice meal.
If you are still stuck for ideas look at what is on offer in the freezers and copy them at home.
Think of those old TV dinners, a dollop of mashed spud, a few slices of beef with some gravy and some green peas.
Each night you cook a meal, dish out one for mum and freeze.
