    Default Meals for One !

    Since I am normally alone 3 to 4 nights a week, I cannot be too much bothered with cooking.

    When I am in the mood, I will eat healthy, even though it is a meal for one - fruits, roasted veg, etc.

    1. What do you eat when you are alone for dinner?

    2. Do you have some recipes to share in this regard?


    Thanks

    I make a meal for 3, when it's only me. So then I have left overs for the next day as well.

    I once dated a girl who lisped, she wanted to watch Faith Like Potatoes. 20 minutes in it dawned that we weren't watching a movie about the Elephant Man...

    Only when i feel like cooking, and when budget allows of course.

    Pretty ill disciplined in this regard.

    If I get it together and think "healthier", fresh salad ingredients, some tuna, herbs, get a little experimental if one can with a tuna salad hehe.

    Lazy route, though expensive the Woolworths meals work for me.

    Also can only get motivated to make a meal if there's more than one, in fact more than two usually.

    I am a fairly big eater, so quantity may vary:

    Roast a chicken in the oven with your veggies and a few potatoes for one evening, take the left over chicken and turn it into a chicken a la king for the next night, chopping up the left over veg and adding that to the pot as well.
    If you have leftovers from the Chicken a la king, freaze it and warm it up another night, voila 3 meals of one.

    Easy fish dish: piece of kinglip, in boiling water in pot, steamer above pot with peeled baby potatoes, and a marrow mix, melt a little butter in the micro to pour over the fish, or a small white sauce.

    or, make a 1kg steak on night 1, on night 2, take the leftovers and mince it to make meatballs, recook in oven. on night 3, take leftover meatballs, flatten out and place on buns - burgers! on night 4, throw it to the dog, you can't do anything further with it now...

    The 1kg steak will only last me 1 night especially with chips and 2 eggs
