When It’s Just Me

When my friends see and hear about all the foods we eat, they are always asking me “Do you eat like this all the time?” Well, yes, for the most part we do. However, when it is just me and I am not cooking for anyone else, that all changes. A lot of times it is leftovers or pizza, or leftover pizza, or other simple things. Sometimes, it is even just sandwiches. With Larry being out of town these last few days, it was all of the above.

This is a typical meal when it is just me. I made a crab and avocado melt, cut up an apple and served it with some potato chips. It was simple, easy-peasy and delicious.

I had a little crab left, but it wasn’t enough on its own, or so I thought, so I added some krab as well. I mixed it all with some green onions, red bell pepper, mayonnaise and some cracked pepper to make a crab salad. “Krab” is a crab substitute made from a variety of white flaky fish, usually pollack.

After my crab salad was made, I buttered some bread and added a couple of slices of jalapeno jack cheese, then grilled it up.

Grill it buttered side down, and grill it just long enough for the bread to toast up and the cheese to melt.

When my cheese was melted and the bread was toasted to perfection, I added some tomato slices and avocado. Then I added my crab salad and voila. My sandwich was ready.

Add a little wine, and dinner was served. Quick and easy-peasy. Dinner doesn’t always have to be fancy to be good. 🙂

Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.

  1. I love melts. So comforting. And perfect for a solo dinner.
    I am yet to figure out what I’m allergic to because I can’t eat krab, but crab is alright. I’m OK with fish, shrimp, lobster… Maybe it’s just the preservatives in the artificial stuff…
