The disadvantages of living alone

comments 11

I’ve been living on my own for most of this year and yet there’s still something I can’t quite manage.

Right now I have a huge saucepan full of soup and half a casserole dish left of apple crumble purely because I am absolutely incapable of cooking for one. It will take me days to finish off both. Well, it’s taken me 3 days to get to this point with the crumble. I just find it harder to cook for one. Whenever I try I get the quantities completely and utterly wrong.

Well, I’m never going to be short of left overs, that’s for sure!


  1. Apple crumble? How did you know that’s what I wanted for Xmas? You better send that this way, girl, Fedex! πŸ˜‰

    • I am fully prepared for the zombie apocalypse – though please don’t raid my house – everyone’s invited!

    • I think maybe the minimum number of people I can successfully cook for is 4. Anything less than that and I cook for about 10 people.

  2. If I’m making something from scratch, I always end up with multiple portions that I then freeze and consider my ‘lazy day ready meals’.

    That said, waste not want not, so when can I relieve you of your foody leftovers? I’ll happily be a human dustbin for the yumness that is Apple Crumble any day!
