Cooking for One -- and eating alone
I know we have a thread for eating out alone, but then there's the rest of us who eat at home alone.
Do you actually prepare full meals for yourself on a regular basis? Do you cook up a lot at one time and then freeze individual portions? Do you tend to just eat whatever cheese and crackers might be on hand? Do you rely heavily on just salads? Do you eat a lot of frozen Lean Cuisine dinners or other frozen meals? If you live and/or work in town to you pick up take out often?
So far as dining alone, do you try to have fresh flowers and candles whenever possible? Do you watch TV while you eat or have lovely music playing somewhere in the background?...Or do you tend to eat standing at the kitchen sink or perched on a bar stool?
I know you likely do a little of all the above just as I do, but I am really trying to make an effort to have a sit-down-at-the-table type meal more often. It's not easy, after being much more casual for so long.
