When cooking for one it is great to have such meals as there is too much
of a tendancy tojust kine of collect crap and call it a meal. If I do
something like baked chicken dishes I generally make at least 2 pieces so
I have it for at least 2 days. sometimes I just lovehavign someone over
becuase it gives me a chance to cook some real adn delicious healthy food,
which I actually enjoy/ I also often do easy eggplant dishes and use that
for 2 days as half a medium eggplant makes a nice amount for a dinner. I
find it often easier to make a vegetable dish like that then to make a
meat or fish and vegetable meal when it is just me.

On something entirely different. today I received a large set of
professional photos taken of my husband in around 2006, when he was all
himself atas illustrations for an interview he had byt some trumpeters
from the Chicago Symphony. as the photos were professional they caught
the absolute essence of my husband at that time and on one of the happiest
days of his old age. He had respectful young men interviewing him and
asking him about his young years in the Sympnony and he got to relive his
youth. the pictures just capture him so well Of course, I wept when I
looked at them, but they are , for me, a great treasure I will cherish.
So glad they were found.
