Pattern emerging so soon?

Part of my committment to the VeganMoFo that I made to myself was to write about everything I eat for a month. It's only been a few days and I am already seeing a pattern.

Too much coffee and lots of burgers.

Truth be told, when I am testing burgers I end up with a gagillion in my fridge and freezer. They are just so easy to reheat and eat. Not to mention that they usually taste good too. But, geez, I need to vary my meals a bit. I think that sometimes I just go with burgers, because making a huge meal seems like too much work, just for me. My husband doesn't eat what I cook, so it seems selfish and wasteful to be extravagent just for one. That being said, I am still waiting for delivery of "Veganomicon" and when it finally arrives (I pre-ordered way back in August!!!) it'll be on in the kitchen. But until then, burgers it will be.

Edited to add: Breakfast was plain black coffee, but I broke away from burgers for lunch today, but only by accident. I responded to a call for "general manager" position at the Veggie Grill and today I went for an interview. The interview went well, although I think they might be looking for someone with more restaraunt management experience as I have none. Nonetheless, the manager who interviewed me, bought me lunch! I had their brand-new-on-the-menu Carne Asada Sandwich and a side of Sweetheart Fries. It was really, really good. I didn't take a picture, sorry. For dinner, I broke down and had a burger. And more coffee. Aaaargh.

Cooking for one can be a tough balancing act. If you're like me and love leftovers, you can always make big pots of chili or soups and live off them for a few days, if you want to vary things up a bit. Some salads also store well- potato, cole slaw, etc.

I hate having to mostly eat by myself, seeing that Chaz eats out a lot during the week. makes me wish you and I lived even closer so that we could share the goodies we make!

bazu, good tips. i freeze lots of stuff. especially chili.

celine, no shiitake! 3 hours is just enough to be too far, but close enough to make it sad that we don't get together! I'm coming out there in december, I promise!

vegan kid, HA! my husband won't touch anything with soy. He's not allergic, he's just a pain in my ass :)
