Dinner for one

Either I slept in an incredibly weird position last night or I’ve been exercising in my sleep. I’ve been aching all over today. Stiff neck, sore back and legs that feel like I’ve been climbing mountains. I blame the housework! Just another reason why mopping and scrubbing is best left to someone else. I’ve also been incredibly tired all day, despite the fact that I got to bed at a reasonable-ish time (11pm). I could mhave done with a quick 40 winks this afternoon. Don’t think work would have been too happy about it though.
I remember reading somewhere that Japanese businessmen do that. Sleep at work I mean. They take regular power naps throughout the day, just closing their eyes and having a brief sleep wherever they are. Sometimes they even sleep standing up. There’s a proper name for it but I can’t remember what it is. Definitely something that should be introduced over here in Europe.

I was going to meet Jan for lunch today, but apparantly he had to film a robot at 1pm, which is when I start my lunch break, so I settled for buying crispbread and random tuna sandwich paste stuff from Karstadt. Hopefully that will last me the next 2 days, meaning no more money will have to spent on lunch this week (I have Thursday and Friday off). Result!

I’m now trying to decide what to make for tea tonight. Jan’s not coming over, so it’s just me. I hate cooking when it’s just for myself. It seems so pointless and it means I have to both prepare the meal and clean up the mess afterwards with nobody to help me. *sigh* Also, food tends not to come in one person portions. I can make chilli for two but not for one (how silly would it be to use half a tin of kidney beans and half a tin or tomatoes? And where sells mince in portions that small anyway?) No wonder single people (and students) resort to pot noodle and microwave meals. But as I am trying to a) save money and b) eat healthily neither of those is an option. Maybe I’ll just chop an apple into some yoghurt. It’s healthy, cheap and there won’t be any washing up involved. 😉 (In all seriousness, I might actually go for that option if I wasn’t so hungry. As it is I’m just going to have to bite the bullet and cook something proper. All I have to do is figure out what…)

  1. Grilled cheese sandwich. That’s what got me through in Scotland for 10 weeks. It’s been many years since I’ve been in Germany but check out what the locals eat. I don’t know if you have a frig/freezer or cooking appliance but you need to eat and can’t wait for the boyfriend to do so! cookingwithdee.net

  2. Oh I do eat. Quite well actually. I never said I don’t cook for myself… just that I hate it! And if I took the other people around me as examples I’d be living on microwave lasagne and bread!
