One of the easy dinner-for-one meals I do is roasted vegetable burritos. I know, it sounds bacheloriffic, something that would likely fit a college student, and maybe it is, but it's a meal where I can roast up all the vegetables ahead of time and dole it out, one meal at a time. It works for breakfast, lunch or dinner and you only need a plate to microwave it, all wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla. I know that sounds uninspired but when I'm cooking for just myself, I don't really "treat" myself since I know any mess I make, I have to clean up myself, so the only treat is not having to do much in the way of dirty dishes.
On the plus side, the roasted vegetable burrito is a nice way to take advantage of fresh veggies from the market. Pattypan squash, aka UFO squash, as I like to call them, are both adorable, colorful and delicious. They roast up nicely and don't require much prep -- just cut off the stem, slice into chunks and roast with some salt, pepper and oil. I had some pretty thin-skinned eggplant as well, so it made for a pleasant mix of vegetables, along with some black beans and shredded cheese.

Stay tuned for more Wasabi-for-One meals, as I did several easy solo meals. A house to myself is weirdly quiet, but it's kind of nice having the space to myself for a few days. I watched girlie things like Ses and the City without shame, stayed up way too late reading in bed without a mumble to turn off the light and more than a few pasta carbonara dinners. Consider it a stay-at-home vacation to indulge in my Secret Single Behavior.
