Ok. So I’ve been living on the road for about a year and a half. Truth is that I both love and hate it. I’m loving the work I’m doing! I love learning my new trade! I love the guys that I work with and new friends that I’ve made! So now for the things that I don’t like – because you have to focus on the positives first right? I hate missing my family! I hate eating out every night (Yes I’m working on fixing this one)! I hate leaving home on Sunday night and not getting home till Friday night!
So not much I can do about 2 out of 3 of my hates but the whole eating out every night thing has got to stop! For 2 reasons. 1 it’s expensive! and 2 it’s totally dragging me down!
So what have I done to fix this ‘issue’ you ask? I’ve started amassing a small mobile kitchen for myself: hot plate, electric fry pan, a dinner place setting (plate and bowl), a few storage bowls, a small coffee pot. The bigger problem that I’m having is learning how to cook for just one person! You wouldn’t think this would be so hard but holy smokes! Everything and I mean EVERYTHING is created to feed as army! 😲😲😲😲😲 At least it seems that way. 😂😂 You want Rotisserie chicken – you know the one that comes hot from the store? You are going to get real tired of chicken over the next few days….and don’t forget some kind of side. Which is designed for a family of 4!
So yes I went to the grocery store looking some kind of protein… and left with a whole chicken!
So I wrote this about a year ago meaning to come back and proof read it and totally forgot about it lol. But it still holds true. While I have figured out a few tricks for cooking for 1 the majority of food in the store is designed for family eating. So while I can change my protein I’m most likely eating the same sides for 2 or 4 days. Although you’d probably be amazed what you can cook in an electric fry pan 🤣🤣🤣
