Dining Alone at Home

It's the perfect moment to be selfish.  No worries about someone else's sensitive palate or over-reliance on animal protein.  Frugal or extravagant, depending on the mood.

I opted for this:

For every pound of boiling pasta place three tablespoons of butter in a skillet. Add four ounces creamy gorgonzola and 1/3 cup milk. Place heat on low, add two teaspoons of salt and mush the cheese as everything melts together. Drain the pasta, add to skillet, along with 1/4 cup heavy cream and 1/3 cup grated Parmesan. Toss. Serve. Devour.

It was memorable.

The down-side about eating alone?  When that bottle of wine is done, there's only one person you can blame.


  1. I envy you your dinner and your dining solitude.

  2. It is rich, that's why you need a marvelous red wine to accompany it--although I didn't mean to imply I made a full recipe.
    M: I was alone the weekend after my birthday and it was a marvelous gift.
