So, as many of you know, my newly single lifestyle means that I’m having to fend for myself in the kitchen.

I learned to cook a few basic dishes, all in the Mexican theme for some reason–quesadillas, enchiladas, nachos, etc. Easy enough to do.

Lately, however, I’ve been busy as hell and uninclined to cook, so I’ve been living on various frozen foods, mostly from the newly-opened Trader Joe’s, which is cheap and interesting food. The fridge is empty, but the freezer is stuffed.

One of the nice things about being single is that you can experiment with all kinds of foods, something that for some reason you don’t do when you’re cooking for two.*  So I’ve been having blintzes and perogies for breakfast and a variety of random stirfries and odd food-in-a-bag for dinner.  (Yes, I know, probably not as healthy as fresh veggies and whatnot, but it’s the best I’m gonna manage, particularly nights when I work. And at least it’s a step up from TV dinners.)

Tonight, I had something called gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce.

I still don’t know what the hell it was, but it was awesome.

Suggestions of other great frozen food cheerfully welcomed.

*Probably the same reason that a single person can treat a can of beer and a jar of salsa as dinner, but you can’t if someone else might watch you. Possibly there is a research paper in this somewhere.
