I have a cookbook called "Cooking for One." It's full of elegantly set tables and beautifully arranged plates of fancy foods. The message is, even if you're alone, you should be eating well. Does anybody ever do this? I think I'm doing pretty well if I actually sit down, with my food on an actual plate.
When I'm alone, which is often, these are my dinners:
- cornflakes with bananas;
- cajun chicken ramen with a box of frozen broccoli thrown in;
- A little frozen dinner with cabbage added (microwave the cabbage first or it will be too crunchy);
- a tortilla microwaved with mozarella cheese on it;
- ketchup sandwiches
- cold spaghetti sauce on bread
- nuked ketchup and water
- hot dog rolls w/mustard and relish - no dogs left
- dry cereal in a bowl - forgot I ran out of milk
- pasta w/Cheese Whiz topping
- Cheez-Its with milk as cereal
- Frosted Flakes for breakfast
- dill pickle spears dipped in Miracle Whip
- bread dipped in salad dressing poured on a plate
- bread sticks dipped in Marsh. Fluff and choc. syrup
- Uncooked macaroni topped with mayonaise and barbecue sauce (when the power was turned off)
- hamburg patty w/stale pizza wrapped around it
- Take a can of pork-and-bean and poured it into a plate until the plate is brim full. In the center of that, empty a can of sardines. On top of the sardines, heap a few tablespoons of Miracle Whip salad dressing.
- scrambled eggs, with hot dogs chopped up in them.
- can of sour cream & onion Pringles and a six-pack
- Best Bachelor Meal Ever: edamame (soy beans in pod)in water
- peanut butter and Miracle Whip on white bread.
- Peanut butter, blackberry jelly, Oscar Meyer bologna, and American cheese on toasted white bread
How about you? What do you eat when there's nobody else home?
