  1. I work as a travel nurse and cook one day a week, traditionally. I love beef stroganoff. I buy a nice steak, fresh mushrooms and herbs. Chop the herbs, add the chopped steak and a small amt of water. Simmer it down and add sour cream, fresh sliced and sauteed mushrooms with onions and garlic, and simmer for a few mins. When nice and thick, add sour cream to personal taste, and continue to simmer for a few mins. Serve over rice or noodles, yummy for @ 4 meals for one. Don't forget the linen nappie and tablecloth!


  2. I thought I was on the wrong website–your new photo surprised me. Great smile, great hat.

    Bless the microwave. Most of my cooking is done that way for the 2 of us.


  3. I do, all the time, and I make myself fancy meals, and I always use a complete table setting and a cloth napkin. I love cooking as much as I love sewing.

    Of course, I live alone, so if I didn't cook…


  4. HA! I love this! I rarely cook a full meal when my husband is travelling. The kids won't eat what I cook (they always want nuggets or mac n cheese) so I usually grab a yogurt or something out of the freezer. When husband is home and I cook a full meal, I will usually try to fix extra and pop individual servings in the freezer, so I at least have something home made, but that just hasn't seemed to happen much lately. 🙂


  5. Cooking when hubs is out of town it's pbj, Cheerios, or grilled cheese for any meal. Sometimes I throw in a salad just for health benefits. 🙂


  6. I seldom cook for one. I raid the premade meals at the local market. They have several entrees for one or two. That way I don't get stuck in the PB&J rut or stop for fast food.


  7. Wait a second….Am I the only one? I cook for a family of 5 and eat out about twice a week…my grandmother always had a cook…I'm trying to figure out how to make that happen!
