Cooking for one



Diced potatoes and asparagus
Drizzled with
Roasted Red Pepper dressing.

Lightly salted;
Lightly flavored with
Dried Italian seasoning.

All ingredients
Tossed with a spoon
For even distribution.

Microwave 5 minutes,  toss. 
Microwave 5 more minutes,
Toss again.

Serve warm with grated cheddar
Or slightly chilled.

My munchkin is a very picky eater so
I don’t enjoy cooking as much as I used to.
Exposing her to new foods is quite a challenge and I often end up eating most of a cooked meal by myself over the course of a few days.

To get her to eat,  I have to make her favorites and mark my words, she’ll only eat it the first day and never touch the leftovers. This is not my child. I’m convinced she was switched at birth!!!

Nevertheless, I’ll continue exposing her to new foods and hope she’ll one day outgrow her fussy ways. But in the mean time, I’ve decided to make a meal just for myself as described above. I need to be catered to every once in a while, don’t you agree? It can’t always be about her!

So, if you’d like to try my latest ‘meal just for me’ here are the ingredients:
– 1 Irish potato (diced or cubed)
– 2 pieces asparagus (diced)
– dash of salt
– 2 tbsp roasted red pepper vinaigrette dressing
– parsley flakes (light sprinkle)
– dried Italian seasoning (light sprinkle)
– grated cheddar cheese (optional)

NB: the image above is burrowed from Google as I didnt think to take a photo at the time. Perhaps next time. ☺
