The trouble with cooking solo, explained with 1 dish

Monday: “I’ll make turkey tacos — fry up this superlean ground turkey with seasonings, use spinach instead of lettuce, add some low-fat sour cream, and lots of salsa on these whole grain tortillas.” (Total consumed: two.)

Tuesday: “OK, Two more turkey tacos tonight. Has that avocado ripened enough? … Nope, not yet.” (Total consumed: four.)

Wednesday: “Hey, want to come over and watch TV? I’ve got all the fixings for turkey tacos, and we can dice up this avocado, too.” (Total consumed: eight.)

Thursday: “Ugh, I am SO DAMN SICK of having to confront this turkey taco meat every time I open the refrigerator.” (Slather remaining two tortillas with peanut butter and eat them while dumping remaining turkey in trash that gets picked up tomorrow morning.)

Saturday: “Hmm .. what can I do with these organic collard greens from the new CSA plan I joined? I know! Braise them and add them to vodka sauce for pasta!”

Monday: “Great: More pasta with vegetable vodka sauce …”
