mid 60s - retired - live alone
My most used cookbooks are "Company's Coming" and the GI diet cookbook. It's hard to cook for one and get a decent weekly supply of vegetables before they go off in the frig, so soups and casseroles that I can freeze in single servings work well.
Otherwise I mostly eat fish-halibut,snapper,sole and salmon; I also enjoy chicken breast meat and seldom eat beef. My ex would only eat beef, so now I eat what I had to do without for 32 years.
What I miss most is not having a family to cook for, I don't mean a 'company meal' - I'm talking about making everyday meals and sharing them with others.
My favourite meals are homemade meusli with yoghurt. The other is a lovely pot of mushroom/barley soup made with lean ground beef. It freezes very well.
I have always enjoyed Asian cooking in the past and still do - I should do it more often. My most exciting new find is sushi (not with raw fish tho') and I made it recently and found it quite easy. I must thank the members that kindly helped me out with questions that I had about it. Miso soup is a quick and easy comfort food and appetite supressant.
I guess the famlies favourite amongst my meals from the past was my turkey and dressing that I leaned from Mom. Family and friends really like my potato salad and i love my cole slaw; otherwise, I'm not too fond of making green salads or eating them daily.
