Day 9 of 25: Cooking for One

This was yesterday's post:

For anyone out there who is cooking for one, I commend you. I find that it is always so much easier for me to make up excuses not to cook dinner when I’m only cooking for myself. I’ve been cooking meals for two for at least three years now. I’m going to have to start getting use to cooking for one though because my husband is starting classes Mondays and Tuesday evenings in a couple of weeks.

My husband is away at orientation tonight. I had dinner planned for the evening, but once I remembered that I was the only one who was going to be eating it, I instantly found myself making excuses to order out or pick up something for dinner instead. The thought that stopped all of my excuses, however, was the thought that I am going to have leftovers to freeze for a quick meal in the future. I haven’t had any real cravings for fast food or anything of the sort, until today. Cooking for one brings on a lot of temptation for some reason. It reminds me of when I lived on my own in a small upstairs apartment in the city. It was so easy to drive down the street to Taco Bell, McDonalds, etc.

Tonight I will be making my Simple Salsa Con Queso Chicken. The recipe can be found under the recipes category at the top of my page!
