Cooking for One

Since the boyfriend is out of town, I'll be making single serve meals all week. I started out this morning with a bowl of Kath's Classic Oats (whipped), along with hot black tea and the first glass of water for the day:

No, I'm not advertising for Starbucks, although I do spend a lot of money there and often receive their products as gifts. I love my reusable plastic cup!

The oats kept me full for a long time. I had to go out and run some errands today and didn't plan on eating lunch, but I brought a pear and some string cheese along with me and ended up eating both in the car. On the way home, I stopped by Panera for a cup of Garden Vegetable soup. Is it bad that I have their daily soup rotation memorized? Not all of them, but I know when to get my favorites.

I made a new recipe tonight for dinner: Asian Cabbage Slaw with Pork. Since this is not my recipe, I won't post it, but believe me when I say it was delicious. It was very easy to prepare also. If anyone would like the recipe, just give me your e-mail.

I did double the amount of vegetables, and served it on 1 oz. of Smart Taste thin spaghetti for some carbs (there was no pasta in the original recipe). I will tell you what was in the sauce, just not exact measurements, because I plan on using it as a salad dressing in the future: rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, canola oil, and honey. Yum!

For dessert, I made a yogurt parfait. I used Chobani honey flavored Greek yogurt, 1/2 c. of white peaches that I froze earlier in the summer, and a handful of Quaker Corn Bran.

I'm in the mood to do some baking, so I'll be back later with a recipe for Berry Scones. I've been wanting to make a healthier version of these for a long time, and finally found some recipes that I could combine. See you then!
