A Lovely Lil' Dinner for One

Raise your hand if you ever have a delectable dinner for one that is a freezer/microwave combo. Oh c'mon, you know you've done it, too. Well, there are times when that piping sucker comes right out of the micro and I stand in the kitchen scarfing it down. And frankly, those times were coming too frequently lately.

That's when I made a pact with myself. If it needs to come out of the microwave, it can still be enjoyed slowly and beautifully. Don't be afraid to use your good dishes or to pour your diet coke into a pretty glass!

Treat yourself to a nice evening at home, girl. I promise you, it will be worth doing the dishes because you'll have had a nice relaxing meal!

Or, if you totally disagree, you can call me white trash. I assure you, you won't be the first to say it. Ha!

Girl it's only white trash if you bring home fast food and eat it on the fancy plates ;)

I think this is a great idea. All food should be savored and enjoyed slowly.

I'm sick right now and can't smell so everything tastes like plain yogurt to me and it's breaking my heart.

I did the same exact thing last night. I actually heated up my frozen Weight Watchers meal for 30 minutes in the oven (something I've NEVER done before), pretended that I was actually cooking something (something I've done MANY TIMES before), and lovingly arranged my freshly (Ahem!) cooked food onto a real plate. Fantastic!

savoring simple meals is always fabulous.
