Cooking for One
Personally, I find cooking for one to be one of my least favorite things in the world. Apart from the constant reminder that you're eating alone is the fact that it takes up far too much time, and that unless you spend an inordinate amount of time planning, it winds up not being as cost effective as it could. However, at a certain point, frozen pizza and Chinese take away start getting old, and a home-cooked meal is needed, if for no other reason than the Zen of spending a Sunday afternoon cooking some things that will take you through the middle of the week. Here are a few meals that may not make cooking for one any more sexy and fun, but at least they make for good leftovers.
German Chicken and Crispy Potatoes
Super easy, comfort food, and not a hell of a lot of prep.
Stuffed Bell Peppers
Again, not so hard to put together, and truly awesome.
And you're set with leftovers.
Easy Spaghetti Sauce
Far better than anything you're going to get out of a jar.
Get to it!
Bourbon. Ginger beer. Lime juice.
