I am having the hardest time with cooking anything for just me.Even when it was technically just Pete and I for a few months there, he always made extra and took it to work, so we were still cooking like we were cooking for a family. Now, its just me and I don't have a clue what to do. . .Lauren
I have tons of kitchen-ways for singles. Sausage works the same as bacon, except I put several slices/links in snack baggies, then i put all the snack baggies in a sandwich baggie. This way I can pull out of the freezer only what I need. When I cook a meal, I cook for four and then freeze a couple, and keep one for later in the week, etc. one of my stand-bys is to cook up two cups of rice, then cook a pound of ground beef or chicken cut into 3/4" pieces. Put them in separate containers in the refrigerator. For dinner, I put rice in the bottom of a deep ceramic cereal bowl, put meet on top, then cut up broccoli and carrots on top, cover and microwave 1 minute. Now I have a nutritious dinner all week long, with no additional cooking! This is great in the hot summer!
