Quick and Simple Meals for One or Two

It seems like the baking and blogging world is filled with recipes from everything to drinks to dessert.   And while I am always willing to try out a new recipe- I do sometimes struggle with some of the recipes out there.   So many are family sized entrees.   And being myself, I find it hard to justify making a family sized recipe.   And I know what you are probably thinking- just freeze or eat the leftovers.   Well- the truth is my freezer is a no man's land of icy frozen blocks of nameless food items.  And leftovers- I can only eat them once or twice and then I am done.   

So, I try to cook meals and food items that are simple and can be made in much smaller portions.  

Here are a few of the items that I have made recently.  

Caprese Pasta Salad.  I even added some bacon to mine.  Because crumbled crispy bacon makes everything taste a little bit better.

An old standby that I love.   Eggs.  I can eat eggs anyway and for any meal.   Scrambled eggs for dinner is a favorite of mine.   For dinner I tend to add veggies and cheese.

And one of my favorites- a cold pasta salad with veggies.  I ended up adding some shredded rotisserie chicken to this pasta salad to add some protein    And my favorite dressing- homemade Italian.   Simple and delicious.

Are there any simple recipes or meals that you make for one or two?  Drop me a message and let me know.  I would love to experiment and have some new recipes to try.
