Cooking for One

shdiep | Sep 14, 2008 08:19 PM

I'm trying to find simple, easy and affordable recipes geared for cooking for one. I was told that I could simply make a big batch of something and then eat it throughout the entire week. I guess that is an option for me, for things like soup, chilis or using leftover chicken and meats. But sometimes, eating the same thing over the entire week can be boring.

Are there any simple dishes that you know of geared for eating for one? Is it just simply reducing the cooking serving to a smaller portion? (I have no idea about cooking)

As well, what are some staples that keep long in the fridge? I've noticed apples keep for at least a month in the fridge, so I can stock up on those by buying in bulk to save money. What else does?
