It can be hard to adjust to cooking for just one person. At first I lived on frozen meals. They were good for the portion control needed for weight loss but they were bad for satisfaction and taste. I started collecting cookbooks and dreaming of good meals. Why should my taste buds suffer because I live alone?
Every Saturday, I give the microwave the night off and I cook up something. Sometimes I prepare the whole recipe and share. My sister takes her lunch to work every day and she has been a willing guinea pig for new recipes. This keeps me from eating the same thing several nights in a row and lessens the chance that food will spoil before I finish it. If the ingredients allow, I will half a recipe. I have even invented recipes on my own that allow me to control the amount, like Saturday Shrimp. It is just right for one and delicious.
I was so excited to read this article online that agreed with my line of thinking. Don't give up on your culinary skills and palate because you are a party of one. Relish every meal and do cook for yourself.
