Recipe for a good solo dinner:
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Thinly slice two large cloves of garlic and add to the oil, moving around until golden. Wash, stem, and shred as much kale as you happen to have in the fridge. Shake out the excess water, then add to the pan. If you have a lid that fits – or that kind of fits, or that at least covers your pile of kale – cover the kale and let it sweat a little, removing the lid and moving the kale around every so often. Eat while reading cookbooks and planning the next week’s meals, then go for ice cream later.
