Post ride meal?

I've been going for rides later (finish around 8pm) in the evening and wonder what I should eat afterwards. So if you would, please share what you typically eat after a ride, or what you would recommend to me. Thanks in advance, guys.

On my Monday night ride, I go to the chinese restaurant and most of the time get Vegetable Lo-Mien with Tofu. I normally eat a PB and J sandwich after my Wednesday night ride since I eat a small quick meal before that ride. On Saturdays, I like to go get pizza after the ride. I normally let my body decide what I eat after the ride. For some reason, My body craves the carbs after rides, so thats what I give it.

I've been into eating a chicken salad sandwich after rides lately (sub avacados for mayo for a less fattening treat). Basically a cold sandwich helps cool me down after a ride in 100 deg heat.

Anything other than empty calories.

For shorter rides (< 6 hours) I usually just eat a usual lunch when I'm done. A sandwich, some fruit, etc. because I'm finishing up around 11 - noon.

For all day rides (9 - 17 hours) I eat whatever isn't fast enough to escape. I had a double helping of brisket and potatoes after the spring 300k this year. I ate half a baguette, took a nap, then ate 5 slices of pizza and went back to sleep after the fall 400k last year.

Pasta. Lots and Lots of pasta for a large ride.
Some mornings I'll have a bowl of oatmeal before my morning ride (about 25 miles, starts as a pleasure ride then I head on to work) I wont eat at all after it making my lunch of usually Crazy Richards peanut butter and preserves seem so much better.

Depends on the days mileage.

Less than 40, nothing other than some fruit, and a regular meal choice.
40-80 is usually tofu tacos or stir fry.
80 and up I get to go to the all you can eat Asia place, which has really good Oysters in a half shell, and black bean mussels.
My plan for when I complete my first 200k, is a double bacon cheese burger made with beef instead of ground turkey: )
