Cooking for One

After over 60 years of cooking for a family and then a diabetic husband, I am now cooking only for myself. At first it was difficult to get inspired when it was only the two of us but I find I do not really need to cut back the amount of what I cook. I only had to obtain lots of freezer containers in single portion sizes.

For instance, I love the “Breakfast Bowls” that can cost upwards of $2.00 each. Doesn’t seem like much but when you multiply that times 30 days in a month, you are spending $60.00 a month. So, instead I set a little extra time for breakfast one morning and and make about about a four portion size. I eat one portion fresh out of the pan and then divide the remaining portions into three different containers. I date and label them by applying masking tape on each container and write on it with a black Sharpie. If I don’t do that, I’m liable to forget what or when I filled it. Slip them in the freezer and I guarantee you that whether it is like the Bacon/Spinach omelet pictured or a single serving of soup or stew, it will taste good microwaved for two or three minutes when you really don’t have time or inspiration to cook.
