when cooking for one, you have to be creative. keep it small, low maintenance, quick. unless it's the weekend, and then you can go nuts.
usually when i find a breakfast or lunch that works, i stick with it until i am sick of it. i guess that's sort of the same for everyone. dinners are more inconsistent. there is a higher chance of eating out, and many times i will just scavenge something at the house, or worse, stop and pay for take-out (rarely).
so, let's help each other. if you're single, what are your tricks for keeping meals small? and everyone else, what are the things you eat every day at your house?
for me right now, pretty much every morning, i have a whole wheat english muffin (double fiber), split, with a fried egg on top of each slice. it's heaven. with some french press coffee. eaten in between having food thrown at me from two high chairs.
lunch lately has been a lot of dr. praeger's california veggie burgers (also thrown on an english muffin, or just plain with a salad). and then scraps from the kids food:)
snacks have been animal crackers and milk (ehhh?).
oh man, my dinners lately have been LACKing. but last night was good. just some tomato, fresh mozz, pita chip, basil/balsamic action. wine. and some sea salt brownies for dessert. that, to me, is perfection.
other things that i'm never without:
- luna bars/fiber one bars for a quick breakfast
- vanilla soy milk
- great harvest bread (for a grilled cheese or pb&j)
- bisquick (breakfast for dinner..duh)
so tell me. what is always on your grocery list?
