I've been known to make a supper out of popcorn and beer, Alix.
But if I'm actually cooking for myself, I usually cook up a mess of cabbage in chicken broth, with tomatoes, onions, garlic, baby carrots, and new potatoes. If I'm not dieting, I throw a smoked sausage in with it. If I skip the sausage, I melt a slice of Velveeta Lite on top of my bowl of cabbage. Either way, I like a piece of brown bread to soak up the good juices.

My wife does not like sushi, but it is my favorite food so on the rare occasions when I am not eating with her I will usually fill up on raw fish

GB thinks like me.

I will get takeout sushi and sit on the sofa, feet up, watch TV and chill out. My drink of choice is Champagne/sparkling wine.

yup, a regular bottle, especially of white zin, goes down with just about the first 3 slices or so. that's why i get the bigg'un 1.5 L.

the 7th and 8th slices are overkill, but i just can't stop, it's so pizzalicious.
then i lay on my back, giant belly pointed up, and fall asleep, dreaming of chasing cats and cars, and getting annoyed when someone fakes throwing a ball...

what is your favorite meal for one? might grill fish
Rickell, what kinds of foods/dishes do you like? Do you want to experiment in the kitchen, or go for an easy meal? Pasta and seafood dishes are some of my faves.

First off what do you like. I would definietly fix myself something that I really enjoy.

There is fish, beef stew, steak, chicken, veal, large caesar salad etc.

Whatever you make yourself enjoy.

When I was single, I cooked all sorts of things. Sandwiches, stir-fry, fajitas, quesadillas, and lots of sauteed items. Sometimes I'd do some chicken-fried steak. Occasionally, breakfast, although I did tend to cook myself a good omelette on my days off.

Sauteed "a-la-minute" type meals are really easy to do. Chicken Marsala, Veal Oscar, many pasta dishes, even stir-fry.
