Today I'm making a meatloaf in crock pot - to have for supper, then when meatloaf is cooled down, I'll slice it all and wrap individually for freezer - sandwiches, other meals. I don't usually do this but it's a good idea with something such as meatloaf.

It can be used/replace regular milk but if you use cream in a recipe, you need the actual cream. I use Lactaid milk for everything, in my tea, on my cereal, when cooking requires milk, etc. I've had no problem with it.

Karen, I cannot eat gravy at all! Chocolate, for me, is really bad - and it's surprising how many foods have milk or milk byproducts in them! I'm not rigid about it but I do try hard not to eat anything with milk in it. I use Lactaid milk but odd as it sounds, I can't have my coffee without a bit of real cream in it!

I used 2 hard boiled eggs today. I made a delicious tuna salad.

Gloria.. I am beginning to think I am lactose intolerant, too. I do not drink milk but I am noticing I get cramps & diarrhea & have been tracking my food to see what might be causing it. I know I cannot eat gravy anymore. I did get diarrhea after I ate the soup.

That soup does sound good Karen, but I'm afraid to try it because I'm Lactose Intolerant and I'm afraid the milk and cheese would bother my tummy. By the way, great to see you, you're okay on your computer now?

Another food idea of mine is to hard boil about 6 or 8 eggs to keep in fridge for a protein snack or for an egg sandwich. Any more ideas out there about what we can do with eggs??

I freeze my bread all the time and I have never had it come out soggy and I don't put it in a special bag either. It's just in the bag that it comes in the store. I have no idea why it would become soggy unless your freezer may not be sealing properly. The idea hit that you read sounds like a good fix for you.

Blessings!

Irene, the only chair I have that I could actually sit at my table, faces the wall and cannot be changed (small space) so I don't sit at the table. Yes, we definitely ARE worth it!

Karen, no I don't buy any magazines but used to get the Taste of Home one and loved it. Now my niece brings me her Hello magazine every week and I like it but it's not about recipes, etc. I freeze my bread but haven't had soggy yet. I've no idea why it would go soggy, sounds like moisture gets in the bread - is it packaged tightly?
Thank you for the soup recipe for one, it's just what we need, great!

Do any of you freeze bread? I do & if I don't I have to throw it out eventually. It does sometimes get soggy when I freeze it. I had to toss some English Muffins. I get them at the discount bread store but it still hurts to have to toss them. I read this hint that I hope I remember next time.

Put a folded paper towel under the loaf of bread before freezing it. It will absorb the moisture and prevents frozen bread from getting soggy.

Roast some vegetables cut in bite size pieces - a small red potato, onion, squash, carrots, green pepper and cherry tomatoes (whatever vegetables you like and eat) with a little olive oil - a little salt and pepper and serve in a bowl over an individual cup of rice. You could add any seasoning you like and some protein - chicken, beef, etc

Egg in a hole

Ingredients:
2 tsps butter or margarine
1 thick slices bread
1 eggs
1 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 red chili, finely sliced (optional)
11/2 tsp chopped dill (optional)
Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions:
1. Make a hole in your bread using a 2 round cutter or the rim of a small glass.
2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place butter in the pan. Once melted, add bread and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
3. Flip the toast over and crack the egg into the middle of the hole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cover pan with a lid. Let cook until egg is set, about 3 minutes.
4. Sprinkle with feta, red chiles and dill (if using).

**one or even two of these would make a good breakfast, lunch or dinner! Add a side dish of fruit, like peaches and make it an entire meal.

**can always make any meal healthier with raw carrot sticks, cucumber slices, any raw veggies that you like

I do that several times a week as it boggles my mind a bit, so I do that two days at a time, so as not to overwhelm myself. This is self-preservation for me.

Breakfast - oatmeal, toast, yogurt

Lunch - egg salad sandwich, applesauce

Dinner - lean hamburg patty, baked small potato, green beans, peaches

I will go through my recipes and take out the ones that are a single serving. I myself love to batch cook at least three different recipes and freeze them and eat on them later. I also so single meals in between.

Irene suggested this thread idea and I second that! Good idea to have a place to write recipes for one person, perhaps meal planning and also tips for eating alone. Any ideas that help you, please share.

I do not like to cook a regular recipe then have to either freeze the leftovers or else refrigerate them and eat daily till they are gone. I would rather learn of some recipes for single people, recipes for one person, something I can eat in one meal.

All suggestions, ideas, tips, recipes for one are Welcome!
