The latest in food

It's hard to be cooking for one again. While Michael was here in July, I was on target planning and making meals.  Now, that's fallen to the wayside a bit as I found some of the same foods would last me a week and by the end of that week I'd rather vomit than eat the same meal again...

I did buy a pound of hamburger meat to make stuffed peppers.  There is a great recipe "for two" that I can stretch out with sides to make 4 meals.

I then experimented with making burgers on my George Foreman grill. They turned out pretty well, except that I didn't have any onion or cheese.  Freezing the buns worked out really well too.  They thaw quickly and I've eaten them with tuna salad, too.

I also bought a watermelon as I had seen a recipe for watermelon water and I was anxious to try it.  It's pretty delicious and needs no sweeteners for a refreshing drink.

One watermelon makes lots of pretty watermelon compost.
