a plain pizza, lots of chopped raw onions or shallots and garlic, a bottle of frank's hot sauce, and a 1.5 litre bottle of white zin.

by the time i'm finished eating and drinking everything, i have to lay down like a puppy that ate too much and it's belly is extended. it's not a pretty site.

I'd call dominos pizza!

I have never liked cooking for only myself. I find part of the joy is to share the meal with others. Plus, much of the preparation and time you put into the meal is the same whether you're cooking for 1 person or 4 people... so I usually don't cook for only myself.

However, when I do, and I can plan ahead... I love stuffed pork tenderloin.

I cut open in the middle and stuff it will all the random ingredients that I love and others in my family are picky about (feta cheese, jalapenos, mushrooms, etc). I let the loins sit in a marinade overnight and grill it up the next night.

With a bleu cheese salad it's one of my favorite things to eat and a pleasure I can usually only enjoy when for some reason my family isn't around!

depends upon my mood.... sometimes I cook up a feast, sometimes I make "breakfast," other times I order Chinese or Vietnamese food.

I don't usually cook much. I'll do a sandwich or breakfast food. hot dogs wrapped in croissants with cheese or grilled cheese with bacon and ketchup.

Pancakes, bruschetta, pizza on a baguette, baguette sandwich with "the works" (clean out the fridge method.. )... all similar concept, something hearty, tasty and produces minimum amount of "post cooking-meal wash up".

Or, you can always go for a huge heap of ice cream sundae, no one is looking!!

I'm big on the old BLT standby for myself. Although I will admit that when I was single frequently dinner was a BIG bowl of popcorn and a Coke.
