The Galloping Gourmet here

I'm cooking alone this week because I've temporarily moved out of the apartment I share with my boyfriend. I need time to decompress. I am used to cooking large, elaborate meals and could use suggestions on meals for one. I have made a large pot of chili as well as coffee-chipotle short ribs with celery-root puree, something I eat for comfort. However, I can't eat this all week. I plan to make a few from-scratch salad dressings and maybe some soup for my next-door neighbor, who's glad to have me back -- split pea, maybe. Something light, since my stomach is in a constant knot. Any ideas regarding tasty solo meals? Thank you.

He kicked you out huh?

by GGreply 108/13/2012

What are you drinking, Bub

by GGreply 208/13/2012

Buy a Costco chicken. That should last you all week.

I think GG is Ina Garten.

order a pizza

by GGreply 508/13/2012

Turkey meatballs, bread pudding, red dragon cheese, cans of frosting, lady ham, baked potato bar ...

by GGreply 608/13/2012

Vienna sausages, Mac and cheese

by GGreply 708/13/2012

Graham! What wine are you drinking too much of these days?

by GGreply 808/13/2012

How many pounds over 300 do you weigh, OP?

[quote]coffee-chipotle short ribs with celery-root puree

This sounds great, but it's hardly something "light" for a stomach "in a constant knot".

Definitely make the soup for your neighbor, & have some yourself with cornbread.

Soups in general are nourishing meals & easy to eat when you're not feeling well -- just have as much or as little as you want, with some kind of good bread. Making soup & baking bread are comforting activities in themselves.

I like cold soups in summer: vichyssoise, gazpacho, butternut squash, cucumber, etc.

Stop with your silly fairytales.

He's no longer your boyfriend.

The move out is permanent.

Frozen State Fair corn dogs.

by GGreply 1308/13/2012

large elaborate meals for two? and now it's meals for one?

Hint, cut the ingredient list in half.

Bitch please. 1/10.

by GGreply 1408/13/2012

I think he should go on Iron Chef America.

by GGreply 1508/13/2012

You're better off without your shithead boyfriend. Good luck.

by GGreply 1608/13/2012

Is this uninteresting, self-serving garbage really necessary here? It's not even good fodder for snarking at.

Get a blog, sister. Or, better yet, eat the wrong mushroom.

by GGreply 1708/13/2012

I'm voting gazpacho. But I'm a freak for tomatoes, so there's that.

You need to spill, OP. What's up behind the time out?

by GGreply 1808/13/2012

Veggie omelets, made with cheese, whatever veggies you have on hand.

They go so well with that bottle of wine you're drinking every night.

by GGreply 1908/13/2012

I smell the scent of gin and regret.

Whatever you eat, you should eat it cold...

by GGreply 2008/13/2012

One of my many housekeepers eats just rice, it seems to agree with them

by GGreply 2108/13/2012

Oh, yes! Congee!

by GGreply 2208/13/2012

Tuna salad with capers.

by GGreply 2308/13/2012

r17, I love you! Eat the wrong mushroom should be the new die in a grease fire.

by GGreply 2408/13/2012

So you kept your old place? Or you moved in with a neighbor? Am I missing something?

I ain't buying this OP. There's a lot more to this. I smell Shellfish & it's gay!

I think you live at the Travel Lodge & you're eating microwave pizzas, burritos and cheap booze. Like Boone's or Dollar Trer cough syrup.

And somewhere a strict bottom lowers his legs to half mast...

by GGreply 2608/13/2012

Mac & cheese - there are some recipes in another thread!

by GGreply 2708/14/2012

r25, his old place is his mother's basement.

by GGreply 2808/14/2012

Why does everyone assume GG is a loser? I'd love to cook well.

by GGreply 2908/14/2012

Tell us your weight, OP.

by GGreply 3008/14/2012

OP knows he sounds clueless. It's his schtick

by GGreply 3108/14/2012

Your weight, OP? What is it?

by GGreply 3208/16/2012

What's that takeout shit you Brits eat? Voldemort? Vonnegut? Something with a "V" that sounds revolting.

Now, from what you've written in another thread, we find out that you were cooking alone because he kicked you out. You're a total fake, OP.

by GGreply 3408/18/2012

Ignore the vultures, GG.

by GGreply 3508/18/2012

r33, from what I can see it is Vcurry or Vfish n Vchips.

Did you move out or did he kick you out?

by GGreply 3708/25/2012

I moved out on my own will and volition :( Now I have moved back in.

by GGreply 3808/25/2012

Are you still in or did you move out over the weekend again?

Have you ever tried Geno's Pizza Rolls?

by GGreply 3908/27/2012

Have you ever experienced drive-thru fast food?

by GGreply 4008/28/2012

1 can tuna fish

1 cup chunky peanut butter

3 tbs Miracle Whip (or Dukes, if preferred)

2 tsp. tabasco

8 maraschino cherries

best served on toasted cinnamon bread with clamato infused pickles and asiago banana chips for extra 'pop'

by GGreply 4108/28/2012

This is the timeline. We went to the Cape and had a miserable time. I moved out for a bit (I kept my old apartment) when we got back. He did not "kick me out," we took a break from one another to sort through our feelings. I recognized that I was being overbearing, and he recognized that he was being unappreciative/insensitive. Anyway, I have moved back in with him. I'm not sure why that's so hard to explain or understand. The one down side to moving back is that his kitchen is much less equipped than mine, which has a butler's pantry and an eat-in kitchen. However, I will make do!

by GGreply 4208/28/2012

[quote]He did not "kick me out,"

Yet in another one of your many menu threads, you stated that he took you back. That clearly indicates he kicked you out, not that you decided to move back in with him. Perhaps you should create a timeline for yourself with information you've been putting out so that your stories mesh from one thread to another.

How's the catering business going, GG?

by GGreply 4505/15/2013

What's happening with your new venture, GG?

by GGreply 4605/16/2013

In response to your original question, I keep humos, pita, peanut butter, whole grain bread and eggs for breakfast and the rest is frozen food or takeout. I also make a lot of soy lattes and protein drinks.

by GGreply 4705/16/2013

. . . one less . . . egg to FRY

by GGreply 4805/16/2013

My God Susan...we all thought you were dead.

by GGreply 4905/16/2013

It was a year ago for the split, GG. How are you coming with the plans for the new businss venture?

by GGreply 5008/03/2013

He was a on a break! Jeez, leave the poor guy alone. Now make yourself a big ol' pot of chicken soup, and you'll feel a whole lot better.

by GGreply 5108/03/2013

We want to hear about his business partners and how things are going with their venture. Are they doing a lot of wedding banquets? Any charity balls?

by GGreply 5208/03/2013

Where are you GG? Is this your week to be Roger Octopus?
