Can you cook for one?
Hey all. How are you doing today?
I have a question for you, do you know how to cook for one?
Theoretically, I know how to cook for one. Just cook less, right? I really can’t do it though. Why is this so hard for me? It’s not like I eat it all at one time, although sometimes if I try hard enough…..
Cooking for a large crowd is something that I have been doing since I was a 12 year old girl. Its just what you do in a big Italian family. Even now, we are only 3 people in the house, and there is a 95% chance there will be leftovers.
Personally, I like leftovers. Sometimes I eat them as they were the first time, sometimes I make a whole new meal. I think that is the only time I can cook for 1. But then again, I’m only heating up a dish of food, hmmmm. I need to work on this. Can anyone help?
Having extras of our go to foods, and family favorites in the fridge or freezer is really never a bad thing. I was alone for a few days, and really had trouble cooking just for me. One night I grilled up a pork chop, but still had way too many pierogi left over.
I guess this is a start,right?
If you have suggestions on cooking for one, I really do want to hear them. Only making one piece of protein, I think I got down. Its the rest of the meal where I just can’t seem to gauge the amount.
