Cooking for two has its pleasures and its difficulties. One of the great things about my and my husband's current situation is that we tend to eat whatever we want, whenever we want, wherever we want. I can try out new recipes on a whim, using flavors and ingredients from around the world, and though I may get the occasional raised brow from my husband, the freedom is exhilarating. Every day is different.
But we still have our own challenges, even after all these years. You know, the dreaded “What’s for dinner?” text, when the last thing I actually want to think about is what's for dinner. That's when I fall back on meals like these: ones that are guaranteed to be satisfying and let me accept a little help from the supermarket.
