    Cooking For One
    13th Jan 17 at 7:32 PM
    Hi, newbie poster though long time lurker trying to adjust to being an empty-nester and due to some substantial changes income-wise in the next couple of months trying to cut my costs and adjust my shopping to mainly solo dining. I abhor waste so good that way and do cook from scratch/batch cook the vast majority of the time. I do "sort of" meal plan but it can be a bit hit or miss depending on my health is on any given day. I'm reliant on on-line shopping so can't take advanage of aldi/Lidl etc. What (if any) changes did you make when changing to a single-person household?

    Pn throw your veg my way please, I've only carrots left.
    Caronc what spices do you put on your onions?

    Yesterday dd2 came and spent the afternoon, but just me and dgson for tea, roast chicken and gravy, Yorkshire pud, carrots and the last of the broccoli and mange tout, I had chips ,not had them I ages ,dgson had boiled pots.
    I've eaten a spicy chicken and cheese toastie for lunch .I'm not sure what tea will be, it's dgsons confirmation tonight, so need to be ready .

    I'm not really bothered about films, and rarely go to cinema, only go if I get invited!
    Focus on contribution instead of the impressiveness of consumption to see the true beauty in people.

    Last film I saw at the cinema was Superman, I took the kids along. Now I just watch them on TV, but recently got Netflix. Plenty of rubbish on there also. These days I find I often get bored or lose the plot and CBA to even try to follow them

    Out mooching, quick meal plan change in 4sda, YS whole trout, make a pleasant change. It is in a cook in bag so nice and easy. The LO stew is now in the freezer

    Breakfast pot of tea, HM yoghurt + honey
    Lunch YS mini pizza, added extra cheese & a wrinkly tom. Then 2 crackers

    Dinner is the YS trout, with "baby" boiled spuds and I think a side salad. My first harvest this year will be some mint for the spuds, it is just getting going now

    Lugged my compost round from the garage, just fits nicely into my shopping trolley, 20 litre bag. Sun's just peeking out, could even pot on my dahlias this afternoon

    Guess it's a woman thing - I like main characters I can relate to.

    Erin Brockovich = you go gal....sock it to 'em for them thinking you weren't capable of whatever and you learnt it/used it (real life basis)

    The Post = you go gal...all the men sidelining her - but she knew Right when she saw it and had the guts to take huge personal risks (real life basis). I came out of that thinking - "Now and about this guy that leaked these Papers - I wonder if he had a very 'convenient', totally 'accidental' (yeah right) car accident that killed him". No they didn't murder him - but they did their best to discredit him by the sound of it (didnt work by the sound of it...).

    I'm not sure I have a favourite film type, just depends on my mood at the time as much as anything. I do have certain actors I like regardless of the type of film. I much prefer books to films though

    I'm just grabbing a quick cuppa before heading to the Drs for my test results. I'm not expecting any surprises so fingers crossed.
    LOs from the weekend have all (apart from the chicken carcass and some onions) have all been frozen or scoffed. I actually have some space (not much) in my freezers, suspect that will change over the Easter period when I have a houseful again....

    A banana for breakfast, olive bread and cheddar for lunch and leftover lamb with risotto rice, sweet chilli sauce spring onions etc for dinner.

    For the past 12 months have been badgering a joiner re a big arched gate he is supposed to be making and he has just told me it should be ready this week. I should be chuffed except I just paid the car insurance and next it will be water rates, council tax, buildings insurance... Recipe for gruel anyone?

    Its a pity that bullies ever thought to try and ruin a thread which has become a refuge for so many. At first glance the thread is about food but really it is about surviving as a single in a world that quite honestly cares for no-one but itself

    I had a quick nap this afternoon and it turned into one of those very deep sleep events, I woke up with my eyes shut and was so cosy, I just didn`t want to get off my tilting chair. I know I will have to stay up this evening, to make up for it.

    Food is simple and I am frying a slice of turkey breast, with a lid on the pan and ratatouille is heating

    I've been to the Drs but didn't actually see anyone. As I arrived I could see my GP leaving, she had been called out on an emergency. Given the option of waiting or coming back tomorrow I opted not to wait, the best solution all round I think

    Yesterdays cinema trip was unusual for me. I can't recall what I saw last... I perhaps only go 2 or 3 times a year. I'm more likely to go and see those 'National Theatre Live' screenings of plays and musicals. They are a little more expensive, but more of an "event". And it sounds awful, but also a higher class of clientele. Generally less of the "popcorn crunching, fizz slurper, kick your chair" crowd. There are also very rarely any under 18s. Mostly I'm guessing because of the content, and they are usually school-nights, and don't even start until 7:30/8pm.

    Tea tonight is a frozen chicken kiev, a jacket potato and some fried mushrooms. Not posh, but fills a hole!
    Because it's fun to have money!

Don't even get me started on those bumper packs of cheap potatoes etc. If you see someone scratching her head at a fruit and veg counter, that would be me trying to work out if it is worth it (or even possible) to cook and freeze, or which is cheaper - getting the cheap bulk pack and throwing some away or going for broke and getting the expensive small pack, which I am however, likely to use in it's entirety.
    'Buy loose!,' I hear you cry - unfortunately the Co-op in town doesn't seem to have got the plastics message and has taken to packaging just about everything.

    This is indeed one of our bugbears as we know Pineapple.

    I sat down and worked out how much extra I am paying on my bills the other day with having to cover them on my own. So added one-third on to the CT bill/the TV licence bill and insurance bill would be the same/doubt there'd be much more on the broadband & phone bill (as I've got an all-inclusive type tariff) and came to a conclusion of over £1,000 extra on the bills pa for a single person, as opposed to a "half of a couple" person iyswim.

    Overall - I can't complain about around £250 per month for bills all told. But it would leave more money for spending if the bills were, say, £300 per month and my share was £150.

    Though I would say the main thing I notice is the whole of the house cost falls on me (hence the move to Wales) and all the cost of the work on the house falls to me (that was tens of thousands of £s that flew out the window over the last few years then...).

    *******

    Oh well...and I think my food bill is about to go up marginally (but will be only peanuts imo #shrugs) - as negotiations are in progress in the town about things that need doing for the town to be "Plastic Free". Since my principles have cost me "I don't really like to think just how much" over the course of my lifetime - then what's a few more pennies in the grand scheme of things imo?

    *****

    Sun shining (ohlawdbepraised) and trip for garden supplies looks like it's on then - and lunch out (no cooking today).

    EDIT; Pineapple - Re that hamlet situation you were in was that downside of the paying-out being done per property (rather than per person) = on the other hand the upside is that the "votes" as to how things should be run was also per property (rather than per person). Whether that "voting" happened or some ********(lets delete word for old-fashioned/unfair-minded person) tried to take all the "votes" for themselves = nevertheless, the moral position was that a family couldn't "out-vote" a single person (as it would be 1 house v. another house - regardless of number of occupants in that house).

    So, to me, families are on a very sticky wicket if they think they can use "weight of numbers" to try and make out they have more power than me. They don't. They have one house and I have one house - that makes us with equal "voting rights" imo.

There's always instant in the cupboard (packet says it contains 99% potato) ... and so there's no urgent need to have potatoes in the house for a few applications.

    The tinned ones I mostly use in summer for spud salads, or to drop into the slow cooker as "what else can go in here?". I only use about 3 tins/year, but it's nice to know they're there.

    For instant mash I probably use just one box/year, but I know it's there instantly if I suddenly decide that mashed potatoes would be the best thing to serve with XYZ.

    I've currently got about 1Kg of spuds lurking that I've not looked at for 7-10 days .... so I should look at those and see what state they're in. The trouble is, to use things up, it's not just the spuds....this week I've also got carrots, a whole savoy, a whole swede and 3 parsnips to ponder over

My food bill certainly more than halved but the electricty dropped by much less than 50%. (Though in fairness it may have dropped more if I stayed on at work)
    Fortunately Tesco online still do a reasonable selection of F&V loose though I do tend to still buy bags of spuds as they don't do the ones I prefer loose.

    It rained overnight but is lovely and sunny this morning so if it stays that way I might have a potter in the garden. I'm not risking planting anything yet though as there is a cold snap forecast again this weekend.

    Foodwise I've LO pasta for lunch and my sea bass is defrosting in the fridge for dinner. I made chicken stock overnight in the slowcooker so will get that strained and chilled so I lift the fat off. I'll make soup with it tomorrow - leek and oatmeal I think after my conversation with kittie on Sunday. The stock is slightly spiced so it should make it tasty

    I've always loved spuds and eat a lot of them - but even so it can be tiring getting through a whole bag (usually 2.5Kg as that's best value) ... so what I do is use instant and tinned. There's always instant in the cupboard (packet says it contains 99% potato) ... and so there's no urgent need to have potatoes in the house for a few applications.

    The tinned ones I mostly use in summer for spud salads, or to drop into the slow cooker as "what else can go in here?". I only use about 3 tins/year, but it's nice to know they're there.

    For instant mash I probably use just one box/year, but I know it's there instantly if I suddenly decide that mashed potatoes would be the best thing to serve with XYZ.

    I've currently got about 1Kg of spuds lurking that I've not looked at for 7-10 days .... so I should look at those and see what state they're in. The trouble is, to use things up, it's not just the spuds....this week I've also got carrots, a whole savoy, a whole swede and 3 parsnips to ponder over

    Spuds I get through okay but I always seem to end up trying to use up bendy carrots if I buy a bag of those, I've a few needing used up in the fridge at the moment from the last bag I got, I should really chop and freeze them.
