Eating for One Print E-mail

cartoon picture of a fat grinning chefThe Chef Paul shares his thoughts.....

Eating for one is difficult because most supermarket packaging policies rarely cater for the single person, so you end up either eating TV microwave dinners every night some of which are very good, but all of which are very expensive, or eating from a tin or worse not eating at all.

The local Chinese or Indian takeaway is often an invitation to escape the monotony of cooking for oneself and the inevitable washing up, but this too seriously damages your wage packet.

So what to do?

Well, you will need access to a freezer to maximise choice and variety, but even without this humble tool, this cunning plan is still efficient in time and can provide variety, particularly if you have a busy schedule to live to.

If, like me you enjoy cooking, but not every day, and can read and can follow a simple recipe, instead of quartering the necessary ingredients, which makes the end result often look pathetic for just one meal, do the whole recipe as if for 4 and divide the contents up into equal portions, freezing the ones you don't plan on using immediately. Most recipes can be adapted for freezing purposes.
