Well if you need ideas or help, you are free to message me.
My boyfriend (who lives with me) made plans yesterday to be gone most of the weekend. I had planned 4 big things to make thinking he will be there to eat and thus not have a lot of left-overs... I am now having to replan what I was going to make. Two of the things will be easy to change to just a one person serving... the other two I might just delay.
I have a package of pork chops that I was going to make. Tonight I will make just one, and it will be glazed (since this is the easiest of my pork chop recipes to do just one with). For a glazed pork chop, you need 1 pork chop and some of the jelly you would like to use. The amount of jelly is determined by your preference, or the size of your pork chop. The types I typically use are pepper jelly, apple jelly, or this thing I found called apple garlic (its a garlic and jalapeno mixture in an apple-jelly-like substance sold my Garlic Festival). All you do is brown the pork chop on the stove and then you put it on a baking dish topped with the jelly and bake for the needed temp and time to get the pork chop done (different size pork chops require different time).
I can then steam the appropriate amount of broccoli for one meal, and use some of my left over rice for a complete meal.
Most veggies, if you start with fresh veggies, you can alter the recipes easily for just one person. I found steaming and roasting veggies are good ways to do only a certain amount. Take broccoli, asparagus, or almost any other vegetable, determine the appropriate amount for just you, cut it up into desired size (if necessary), and then steam or roast with seasonings. The veggies can also be mixed. For example, roasting broccoli with onions, peppers, and then sprinkled with some seasonings and evoo.
