I think some people were surprised when I talked about my new incentive to cook well for one person. Here is what I typically eat during a week.

  • Stir fry
  • Pasta with some kind of sauce and veggies
  • Something instant (like frozen pierogi)
  • Lentils and rice

There are other things that I randomly fill out the week with, but these are pretty much weekly staples. They’re cheap and fast. I think the next move to fast (for me) and easy cooking will be a crock pot. I’m starting to investigate what one can do with them; it turns out they are pretty versatile.
