Cooking for One

My wife and daughter are SW Nebraska for the weekend, so I'm home alone. I enjoy the first few hours home alone, but then the novelty wears off and I crave my usual company. With Little Miss Pickyeater out of the house, I should use the time to try new recipes, but cooking for myself isn't as satisfying. Food always tastes better when you share it with those I love.

Tonight I'll just settle for cheese, crackers, and summer sausage. I'll wash it down with some bottled Free State Beer, which just hit stores this week.

What's your favorite meal to eat alone? My 92-year-old grandmother today mentioned that she often prepares herself a fried egg sandwich for dinner. Maybe that will be dinner tomorrow night.

Chocolate chip cookies sound great, but I'm an old fashioned guy and prefer mine with milk.

fuggles --that's a word that makes me smile,

I love a fried egg sandwich. When prepared properly (fried over medium in bacon grease), it is one of life's great pleasures. Last week I really outdid myself with the fried egg sammy I made. It included two pieces of toasted and buttered Sara Lee Multigrain bread, one perfect fried egg, two slices of bacon, mushrooms and onions sauteed in the bacon grease, and a couple slices of smoked gruyere. I also love fried eggs and grits. Have a great weekend and take it easy on the bacon grease. I hear that stuff isn't so good for you. Damn it's good though!

That sounds like a great meal to me :-). This is my first visit to your blog, but I hope to be back often. I really enjoy the humor tucked into your posts. The recipes aren't bad either :-). Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Flying solo means lots of oatmeal, cheese and tomato sandwiches on the George Forman, and pickles and olives. And if M is gone for a couple of days, I'll get an IPA that she's not fond of.
