Cooking for themselves

kubasd | Oct 25, 2009 04:16 PM

Ok, so i searched both on chow's search engine (notoriously unreliable) and on google, and it seems nobody has posted about this, but if so, please direct me to the appropriate post.

I am almost always in the position of having to cook for only me, because the people i live with will very very rarely eat what i cook. Does anyone else hate cooking for themselves only? I get so much less satisfaction from it. I mean, I love creating new dishes, and enjoy eating them, but part of the joy i get from cooking is seeing other people enjoy it... I am much less likely to cook every night if I'm the only one enjoying it, otherwise i'll make something like a lentil salad to enjoy throughout the week. Am I the only one??
