Secret Single Behavior.


Do you have a "secret single behavior?" While I love to cook, I can't say I love cooking for one. When the hubby is not home for dinner I usually am a pantry raider, eating soup, grilled cheese, quesadilla, oatmeal, or cereal. Tonight during my raid I came across a blue box of the "gourmet" kraft mac-n-cheese. Add a little fresh wilted spinach, class of "naked" chardonnay, 2 shiny new foodie magazines, & a DVR'ed new Glee...Perfect solo night for me!


Today I'm:
+loving the April issue of Cooking Light's feature on noodles & spring veggies. I heart noodles.
+Contemplating using my bunco winnings on a first of spring pedicure

+Still looking for the perfect table lamps to sit atop my bookcase

+Really not wanting to fold & iron the 2 baskets of laundry waiting attention




{ETA: When in California I realized that I do not loathe Chardonnay as much as I thought I did, I just am not a fan of "American style" with big oak & buttery flavors. Solution? "naked" chardonnay, fermented in stainless steel tanks or neutral french oak barrels.}

Hubby going to a conference tomorrow ... get to rock my single behavior! But really I'll probably wind up cleaning!

hmm - naked chardonnay ... I think I must try it seeing as I generally say no to chardonnay :) and I love single girl night dinners ... they're always made of my favorite easy foods!

I love secret single behavior confessions. Mine is very similar. I usually do something crafty, have cereal for dinner, and paint my nails while watching some cheesy chick flick! Cheers! That Chardonnay sounds nice. And congrats on winning bunco!

Sounds perfect. I agree with you on the Chardonnay as well. Naked is the way to go.

I definitely have a secret single behavior! When TEN isn't there for dinner I eat something I love, but he can't have. He's lactose intolerant, and I love alfredo sauce :( So, usually it's something milky or cheesy for me on those nights. And I catch up on Gossip Girl, The Real Housewives, and Joan & Melissa!

Have you ever checked out Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld? It's a cookbook that uses purees to add veggies into recipes without tasting them. One of her recipes is for mac-n-cheese! I'm new to the world of blogging, so please stop by!

Mac and cheese is a go-to SSB food for me! As are angel hair noodles with salt and a little olive oil. Easy and good.

Like carbs much? ha

I like single nights every once in a while too. I do like California Chardonnay though, with oak and butter flavors. :)
