In a snack-size Zip-lock bag place 1/2 cup instant oatmeal, 1/8 cup raisins, 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, seal the bag. Prepare as many as you wish and take to work (keeps well in desk drawer). Empty the bag into a cup or mug, add 1/2 cup hot water, stir well and have a satisfying meal or snack for under 300 calories and less than $1.00.

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.

When I was single I often made things that would freeze well at the regular quantity and then froze them so I could just take them out and have them again. It kept me from having to eat leftovers for days, gave me a variety, and kept me from eating out so much.

Don't make someone a priority when your not even one of their options....

When you feel like giving up remember why you held on so long in the first place.

What a great idea, my husband and I still cook for 4-5 and end up with leftovers forever!

Single serving recipes are easy to make for more & still not have leftovers........unless you choose to have. Since I live alone, I try to find single serving recipes that I like. I usually make two servings & save one of them for the next day. I will share a couple of them now in case you're interested & will share more later. I hope you will also share some 1-2 serving recipes.

GRILLED CHICKEN PARMESAN

5 oz. chicken breast
2 T. marinara sauce
1 oz. part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese

Grill or saute chicken breast in a pay sprayed with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat until cooked through.

Top the cooked chicken breast with marinara sauce & cheese. Broil until hot & bubbly or microwave for 30 seconds to melt cheese.

Makes one serving.


CHICKEN TERIYAKI

6 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
3 T. low-sodium teriyaki sauce
1 clove garlic, minced or 1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. ground ginger
black pepper
1/2 c. red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 c. snow peas, cut into thin strips
1 c. broccoli, cut into small, equal size pieces

Combine teriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger & black pper in small bowl.

Add chicken strips to bowl & combine thoroughly with marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
