my favorite things to come home to, while i am still living alone during the week, are leftovers! it’s the second best thing to having someone make supper for you and have it ready for your arrival, which is pretty hard to get when you live alone. slow cookers are a poor substitute, but in a pinch, they are okay.
but leftovers. things that are ready in the fridge, waiting for their short time in the microwave, developing intense flavours, melding the bacon with the tastes of the vegetables and the beans, etc for example. they are good stuff.
cooking ahead of time is one major survival trick i’ve picked up. cooking for one means that any recipe you make will have loads of leftovers to either freeze or keep in the fridge for a couple days. i love cooking but doing it every single day wears me out! leftovers are my saviour. my first big appliance purchase is going to be a chest freezer.
