I have decided that I hate cooking for one person. Even in college I had roommates and significant others so when I did cook it was always for at least two people. Now, it's just me and I have no passion to make something other than in the microwave.
My husband and I did, however, have a Skype dinner date where I showed him how to make enchiladas. He made it for him, his roommate, and his buddy, me on the other hand, well I just made two rolled tortillas worth. While it was great to help him learn how to make it, it just wasn't worth it for me to dirty all of the pots and pans for just me.
Hopefully, now that I am making some work friends, I will have people over so I can cook my food without giving me leftovers for a whole week.
Another thing I have noticed (that other than fast food) if I think something sounds good, like The Cheesecake Factory, going there by myself is, well...lame. I really don't want to be "that girl" when the hostess asks "How many," and I say "One." I also, don't want to be the third or fifth wheel.
My office-mate asked if I wanted to go out to dinner and a movie with him and his fiancée, and as sweet as that was because he knows that it's just me and the "hubster" is finishing up training, is not going to happen. It's hard being around other couples while my other half is not here, guess I will have to get used to it with a deployment coming up, but I have a feeling it will feel different for me. Plus, I don't want to intrude on what was going to be their date night.
Oh well, guess I will make a frozen pizza and find a movie on Netflix to watch with my four legged friend.
