I like to cook. I frequently don't cook because I'm busy, overworked, and, perhaps more importantly, I live alone. It's not as much fun to cook for one, and recipes especially the ones I have tend to be for many.
But, I'm getting back into it. Recently I've made chili, split pea soup and chicken soup. Last night, I went to the grocer with the intention to make my week easier. The plan was
- modified pasta carbonara with chicken and bacon for last night's dinner [salad on the side]
- chicken, broccoli and cheddar quiche for lunches and dinners throughout the week
- chicken broth for quick soups and such throughout the week
- banana bread for this morning's breakfast [which was to be served, and was served, with mascarpone and bacon]
I can't help thinking that we'd all be happier and more balanced if we did this consistently. Many of us only eat crummy food on a regular basis because there's nothing else to eat.
