There's not a lot of food in my house that makes a good dinner for one. So tonight, I boiled up some noodles, strained them and melted some butter on them. Of course the pot I used was kind of small so I'm considering making a second batch. I ate a few saltines with the noodles, too. Overall, not too exciting in my house.

Sounds a little boring for a dinner. Hope you had a salad to go with it.

Let's see what I'd could do had I had the stuff around ... you could have made a white sauce instead of just adding butter to the noodles. And a little blanched broccoli, carrots, and asparagus. And a little white Cheddar cheese as a topping (and a protein).

I'd have seasoned the noodles with the butter and added a little lemon juice, dill weed, and some parsley flakes. I *love* pasta.

There's only so much to do while I'm cooking with one hand. I have an 8 month old who is attached to me most of the day. : )

I'm also not a big fan of veggies in general. To be honest, I really really like buttery noodles. I always have. So it's not as though I'm complaining, it's just... boring. Hah hah.

I understand what you mean ainjel.

I found this great site and it helps me a lot when I'm in short supply of ingredients and have no idea what to cook.

Just select the stuff you have at hand and it gives you a list of recipes that you can make with those. Hope that helps! :)
