The Guy Thread

ok, the title is a little misleading but....


how the hell do single guys make it!!!!!!!

I am living in the Keys for a couple of months, i arrived late last night around midnight and with in one day i have spread all of my suit case contents around the room, and have no food until i goto the grocery
usually i just tag along with pc as she picks out what to cook, dont get me wrong i can grill a mean steak or chicken on the grill, but i dont belong in the kitchen itself, but now i am left to my own demise....

so bachlors, what the hell do you guys do for food? and take out or drive through's cant be made everyday, its the keys, prices are jacked up like no other...































(pc if you read this ur are missed)

Spaghetti/Chili/mac and cheese/pizza. Get creative. If its no good it probably wasn't that expensive anyway.

I just buy all my groceries and cook nice meals for myself

If you have a grill you're all set for your mains (chicken, steak, pork, etc). Your side dishes are easy (mash or bake potatoes, you can also buy some good rice pilaf sides from 'near east' and they are very good and easy to make), throw a quick salad together, voila.

When you want to get fancy, there are a lot of things you can play with. You can google for recipes.

Usually I will cook a couple portions worth of anything I cook (since it's not anymore effort really) and throw that one in tupperware in the fridge for a lunch sometime that week.





Something I like to throw together once in a while that is easy and tastes great:
Preheat oven to 350.
Toss 3 boneless chicken breasts in progresso breadcrumbs.
Put into the bottom of a casserole dish.
Then top with lemon slices directly on the chicken (will cook in flavor, you can take them off pre-eating), canned crushed tomators (like contadina or something), marinated artichoke hearts (can buy in a jar), and capers.
Cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil and throw it into the oven.
About half an hour later, turn the heat up 25 degrees, remove the aluminum foil, and cook for another 15-20 minutes (this will 'roast' the veggies on top a little bit, and dry up some of the excess juices in the dish). This is a good time to throw on your near east rice pilaf mix as well.
Make a salad if you want during those last 15-20 minutes mentioned above if you'd like.
Eat. It's very good and very easy.

Breakfast food for dinner is always good. If you don't know how to make bacon, eggs, sausage, gravy, biscuits, and whatnot LEARN.

You are just incompetent, Will. I cook better than Andrea, although my shopping lacks, I just buy whatever I want without concern for coupons and saving money. Andrea is real good about that stuff.

If there is a Kroeger around get a Kroeger card and always go there. I have gotten 20 bucks worth of food for 13-14 bucks before. It's amazing.

All the stuff PG and trock are mentioning isn't 'single guys making it'... it's 'single guys eating easy-to-cook food that's chitty for you'

You've gotta put a little effort in to keep yourself healthy and eating decently. Once you get the hang of it, it's not hard. I actually enjoy cooking a decent meal.

You can always cheat, Andrea sometimes goes to these places that provide the ingredients and you just put them together and put em in the freezer until you want to make the food. It's pretty good though and better than true frozen meals because they were fresh until you get em home and freeze em.

Sounds famaliar, make a list of what you need to make meals for a week or so and go shopping on a full stomach. Cuts down on junk food buying.
