Cooking for one

Friday, October 09, 2015

So I am still not used to cooking for one. It's only one less than two, but even when there was two of us we always had leftovers, and now it seems like I just have MORE leftovers.

"I am so sick of the peanut noodles I made," I told my friend. "I made them like three days ago and still have leftovers. I want to eat something else already."

My friend replied simply, "Why don't you just freeze them and store them for later then?"

Why don't I?

I honestly didn't even think about that before. It seemed so brilliant when she suggested it! My brain just isn't wired for single life, including cooking.

Any other single cooking tips anyone has to share?

    sometimes it just takes another brain to come up with the perfect solution! I am glad you found some answers and have a good friend to help you through!

    I freeze lots of things in one serving portions. Then later in the month, when I'm really busy, I can pull something out of the freezer, heat it up, add a salad or fresh vegetables and I have a quick, easy meal. Be sure to mark the date on the foods that you freeze, so that you can keep track of how long they've been in the freezer. Also, mark what the item is, if it isn't obvious from the outside (who wants pasta sauce, when they're expecting chili?).
