Lunch at Noon? Dinner at 6pm?
There was a time when this was the rule. My family was young and I had a mealtime schedule. But, the family grew up and moved away. Now there are no rules or weekly menus posted on the fridge.
Cooking for one is very flexible....
I will start with a trip to the kitchen garden and pick some winter greens for a salad.
How about a pot of "quick" soup?
I keep it simple for today's lunch, using whatever looks interesting in the fridge. I have some leftover breakfast sausage, red and orange bell peppers, and a small onion that I saute in a little butter. Using a can of black beans, rinse the liquid off. I add the beans to the mix and continue to cook for a few more minutes. Sprinkle in a little flour. Continue to stir while adding a can of chicken broth and 1 cup of water.
A handful of pasta swirls will make it more filling.
This is what you have for lunch when you can break the rules....
