For dinner last night I opened a package of chicken breasts (two) and baked them in Trader Joe’s Satay Peanut Sauce. This was really more food than necessary for one person, but I ended up eating all of it, rationalizing (this time) that it was the only thing I’d eaten all day.
I tend to do this a lot, since most packaged foods and recipes are in quantities for more than one person. (Yes, I know there are tons of single-serving frozen meals out there, but they can be pricey and most taste like cardboard.) I’m not a big fan of leftovers.
Of course I have people over for dinner on occasion, and my roommate and I often share meals, but most of the time, what’s a single person to do?
