Cooking for One (or two)

November 1, 2016 in The Ms. Moderation Blog

Cooking for one or two isn’t always motivating. My kitchen is filled with large appliances from our Full House years, so roasting a cauldron of porridge means 1 of 3 things happen:

1. We eat the same thing all week.
2. I have to portion it out for freezing.
3. I throw it out by the weekend.

Last night I made slow cooker steel cut oats (added hemp seeds, almond butter, cinnamon and apples in the morn). Tonight’s Halloween treat is veggie chili (kidney beans, carrots, onion, garlic, mushrooms, and spinach).
