Here’s a Problem. What Do You Feed Yourself When in COVID Quarantine?
As many of you know, I've been in COVID quarantine since last weekend after having tested positive, even after being fully vaccinated and boosted. Aarrgghh! Just cold-like symptoms, but nonetheless, I don't want anyone else to get this. I've been able to broadcast the morning show from home, and I'm feeling much better. But, here's the question. Being alone, how does one take care of themselves, food-wise?
Breakfast is pretty simple, lunch is easy, but dinner? There's the problem. What do I do because I like to have a nice dinner if I can. I certainly can't go out. I could order in, but that get's expensive, and besides my refrigerator and freezer are pretty full of food. Let's see what I can fine.
There's always week-old pizza!
Oh well, NOT! Wait, what about about week old spaghetti?
Okay, that's a big NO!
Then, what about Rice A Roni, the San Francisco treat?
Alright, alright. Some pitfalls you might fall into, but I do like to cook, and so whipping up something, taking a little time since I have so much of it, is no problem. Being able to sit down to a nice dinner, even if by myself, is rather comforting and soothing.
Some of the things I've created this week, and believe me they are very simple, are:
A pork loin chop with green beans and diced potatoes with chopped onion and garlic. Brine the pork for a bit, Sous Vide for a bit, my favorite, and finish is a cast iron skillet with olive oil and butter!
Or, Salmon, brushed with olive oil and seasoned to my choice, with roasted brussels sprouts with chopped cloves of garlic and corn. Wine is a yummy extra.
Or, a bone-in chicken breast, brined for a bit, finished with a mushroom cream sauce, rice with mushrooms and green beans. Okay, another glass of red wine. Red wine goes with anything in my book.
Make it special. Cook for fun to fill up some time, and eat healthy. And, hopefully, I'm a big NEGATIVE SOON! Seriously!
