Sometimes it can be tough making dinner for one. What to make that won’t yield so many leftovers you’ll be eating it all week, plus having your freezer full of it?
I’ve been really enjoying winter squash and grilled chicken lately. Kale and avocado salads too. They make for easy dinners to throw together, with enough leftovers for the next day (unless I go back for seconds).
Usually I just eat my grilled chicken with a little S&P and maybe some garlic, but I wanted something different today. I’m not sure why but cajun seasoning was calling my name, and it lent a terrific flavor to the chicken.
I also baked some butternut squash (and roasted some broccoli while the oven was on) so I could make some more of this stuffing recipe to put in my squash. Last time I used acorn, this time butternut. I can’t wait to experiment with the buttercup squash and turban squash still sitting on my countertop.
I still have half a chicken breast and some quinoa stuffed squash to enjoy for lunch tomorrow – perhaps turning it into a wrap or a sandwich.
This is my kind of dinner for one.
What’s your favorite dinner to make when eating solo (or if you always eat solo, just favorite fall-inspired dinner you’ve been enjoying recently)?
