Cooking for One

herby | Feb 9, 201102:40 PM

I most cook for myself these days and find it very difficult. I get bored very easy and do not particular like leftovers. So when I make a normal recipe - serves four - I end up throwing some of it away. I tried freezing and sometimes it is OK - recent successes have been individual leek and turkey pies, chicken curry with pineapple, mushroom and barley soup. Other things just sit in the freezer and I have no desire to take them out... I have Joyce Goldstein "Solo Suppers" and like some (but unfortunately not too many) of her recipes - persian soup with meatballs, farro salad, lobster, poached salmon - but didn't like her duck recipes, saltimbocca, chicken recipes. Took Toni Lydecker's Serves One out of the library the other day and am left complete uninspired:(

Any suggestions? Would love to hear your thoughts!
