Home Alone

What do you cook and/or eat when you are by yourself? Many, and I suspect most, of us have spouses, live-ins, or children. What do you eat when it is just you, alone by yourself?

Pasta. Jacques Pepin has a great recipe for bowtie pasta with a soft cooked egg on it. Noone else in the house will eat it.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I usually order Chinese food since my dh doesn't care for it. Or a bowl of cereal.

DH is going to be gone for 10 days, and I'm going eat all my favorite goodies. Brats with sauerkraut, hot dogs from the German butcher, bacon and tomato sandwiches, tuna casserole, eggs rolls, fish sandwiches and macaroni and cheese. I'd usually cook up a head of cabbage, but I've been eating so many fresh tomatoes, I'm not sure my system can handle it.
We get by with a little help from our friends

A big salad, or pasta. Sometimes I'll make a couple of big dinners before he leaves, so I'll have leftovers to heat up.

Ah the luxury of anything I desire one of my favorites a fried egg sandwich, rib lamb chops with parsley and garlic at least 3, a plate of sliced tomatoes and a slice of french bread to dip in the evoo and vinegar, a nice piece of calves liver with bacon and onions..Hot chocolate and several pieces of toast dripping with butter to dunk in the drink..A small bowl of well buttered popcorn and a cold drink and a good movie to watch..MY favorite in between meals snack as my dinner is a flour tortilla with pepper jack cheese melted on it YUM!

My favorite is angel hair pasta (one form of pasta my husband and most of my family simply do not care for) with veggies. A sort of pasta primavera. Lots of olive oil, hot pepper (in the winter flakes, in the summer from the garden) and garlic seasoning. So it becomes a warm pasta salad.
