Since I am cooking for one I have been trying to re-purpose leftovers to make them feel exciting and new even after a few days. This morning I served up a fried egg on top of green rice (from Mollie Katzen's The Heart of the Plate; which I highly recommend) and avocado slices. It was a totally satisfying breakfast that I would prepare again on a weekend . I am looking forward to baking a couple of sweet potatoes and roasting a big pan full of vegetables this weekend to be reheated for weekday breakfasts and lunches. Putting a little thought and preparation in on the weekends is paying off during the week when a few too many "snoozes" makes the morning a little more frazzled.

For a single person it can also be difficult to find someone to care for your garden or containers if you go out of town. Last summer I had tomatoes in containers on the roof deck and worried for days leading up to a long weekend about who/how they would be watered. In the end I let them fry in the 90+ Baltimore sun, but that experience has made me very careful with what I plant this season.
