Living alone can is a lifestyle all its own. One of the challenges I often hear people speak about is learning how to cook for one. Having lived alone for many years and finding eating out a hassle, I have managed to find things that work. Maybe its time I share a few ideas.
It's the new year and as with a lot of folks, I've decided it's time to eat healthier and to possibly drop a few extra pounds. I need to get back to the basics of preparing better meals. Tonight I hauled out George Foreman grill and got started! I took a frozen hamburger patty out of the freezer and put it on the grill. At the same time, I put a pan of water on the stove to start boiling. When the hamburger started to thaw a bit, I seasoned it with a steak seasoning from a spice grinder flipping it to get the back side. Once the water boiled, I put a nice portion of whole frozen green beans in the pan. According to package directions, they should cook for three minutes. Once they were done to my satisfaction, I drained off the water and added a bit of butter and sprinkled them with a bit of garlic powder. By this time, the burger was done so I put it on the plate and put a bit of Worcestershire sauce on it.
This all took maybe 15 minutes and I had a fairly healthy home-cooked meal! And cleanup was a breeze as well!
