I live alone, and I have a limited repertoire of dinner recipes. I'm totally okay with eating the same thing multiple nights in a row--I haven't done the math, but this may be a money-saver.
Anyway, I'd like to see what kind of recipes this community can recommend for a bachelor. Share with me your favorites, please, and thanks in advance.
buy a deep freezer and go hunting and fishing, I just take out a piece of meat and portion out some frozen vegetables and perhaps a pasta side. I eat any leftovers for breakfast. I practically live out of my freezer when i eat at home.
I highly recommend you shop around until you find an older version of the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook.
Lots of usable recipes, although you may have to do some math, such as dividing quantities by 2 or 4. Lots of basics, some stuff obviously 1950's era nutritional advice, but it sticks to basic, non-packaged meals and is always a help, like when you can't quite recall how long that meatloaf is supposed to stay in the oven.
I cook two to three times a week, like you just for myself. A simple favorite of mine is to buy chicken pieces (or cut one up yourself, done both) or slices of beef (pre-cut "carne asada" works great as it is already portioned, thin and quick to cook) or even pork chops. Cook all or most at once.
With it I have some sort of vegetable. Steamed broccoli, mushrooms, peas, or whatever mix I threw together. I will often premake my own salad and eat it throughout the week to (DO NOT put dressing on until you eat it!).
Works for me.
