A Meal For One

I usually make a nice dinner every night, usually with whole foods -meaning from fresh, unprocessed ingredients. On nights that I know Oliver won't be home for dinner, I sometimes simplify things, to lighten my load (hello frittata or antipasto dinner).

Tonight I was flying solo for dinner. Kit ate his dinner much earlier (as is usually the case) and Ethan is away. I had already bought these nice tomatoes and basil that were not going to make it another day, so I made myself a simple and delicious meal -nothing earth shattering, but yummy.

I barely cook the tomatoes so they hold their texture and of course I start out with a little olive oil with garlic.

Top with basil and cheese and pepper.

I even made garlic bread, which I can (and do) eat in copious amounts.

Do you make yourself something nice for dinner when you're flying solo or do you just hit the cereal box?
