Being alone for few days really made me realize how my life revolves around the people I live with. Their likes and dislikes, and what they can and cannot have, play such a big role in what I eat. One doesn't like eggs, other fish, and others just will eat anything.

I did eat lot of eggs when they were gone and felt so unusual to enjoy them by myself. I like to have the experience of picking and choosing but wouldn't want this all the time. Started wondering strange things, like what if this would be permanent and if I locked the door? Normal things I take for granted. It is change but don't like it to be too long.

Enjoy your time. I am sure your little dog will wonder what happened? She can have more attention too if that is possible. I know she gets plenty.

My favorite is grits topped with lots of cheddar cheese, hot sauce and a special spice from a special friend!

Since dear husband doesn't eat any red meat, I usually treat myself to a beef, lamb, or pork dish when he won't be eating at home.

For instance, tonight he's going to a concert with a friend after work, so I have a nice chuck steak (one of my favorite cuts) marinating in oil, dry sherry, soy sauce, & chopped fresh garlic. Will sear/grill it in my cast-iron grill pan & enjoy it topped with butter/sherry sauteed mushrooms & Vidalia onions, along with fresh spinach sauteed with garlic, & a nice baked potato.

And here he thinks I'm so lovingly accommodating to his nights' out without me simply because I'm such a terrific person - lol, lol, lol!!!!!

Way to go, Breezy, same way I feel. If they are having fun, I will too. Sounds very good. You sure you didn't make enough for two? Who wants company when you want to indulge yourself? I'll be thinking of you.

Lol! Actually, while I nearly always finish my potato & spinach, there's always some steak left over. I just save it for the next day to enjoy as part of a "steak & eggs" breakfast. I know, I know - 2 meals in a row that are heart attacks on a plate - lol!!! But I eat pretty much uber-healthy the rest of the time.

Most times it's something like pasta and either a canned spaghetti sauce or what I used to LOVE as a child - butter, garlic powder, salt, and a bit of dried parsley. Also, cottage cheese in good in pasta too you just have to heat it a bit to get it to melt.

I've also got a homemade chili oil I keep in my cupboard and that drizzled over pasta is pretty good, quick, and easy.

Fried egg and tomato sandwich or grilled ham/mozzarella/tomato sandwich.

I love to heat up a jar of B&M Baked Beans that I eat with Ruffles potato chips. I actually scoop the beans up with a chip and eat them that way. Don't know why I love this combo but it's one of my favorites. (I don't eat them out of the jar, though. Don't want ya'll to think I have no manners!)
