Dining Solo....

Since my guys have been away I have been dining alone...I enjoy cooking for myself and putting on some music and sitting down at the table with a lovely plate of food and a glass of wine.

Saturday evening I got myself some little loin lamb chops which I marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, some fresh thyme and Rosemary and some Maldon Salt....I grilled them with a tomato and some fresh asparagus, and I also grilled some lemon was delicious...
I sprinkled a little bit of Greek feta over top of the grilled tomato....heavenly!
There was a peace to eating alone...I did not care who wanted what or who ate what...I had what my heart desired...I had a littlebit of whole wheat couscous that I had added some toasted pinenuts was pretty good if I do say so myself!
I was so hungry by the time I took these was about 9:30...I did not futz around with the food on the plate...I enjoyed each simple bite...


  1. Good for you and grilling alone~ I would need my indoor electric panini grill! I fear the BBQ!!

    That looks soo good Linda..great presentation too.
    I have often wonderef if I would have a glass of wine or 2 on my own..Now I know:)

  2. I have no problem doing it...
    maybe I should but I do not....
    I am the grilling person here...12 months out of the year. Mike shovels a path to the grill through the snow!

  3. Linda, you dinner is making me *DROOL*, it's a favorite of mine.
    I really admire that you cook a wonderful, proper dinner for yourself while your fellows are in Europe.

    Too funny, me too! I'm the "griller" here, my mom wasn't, (but one of my aunties was- I think it rubbed off!)

    At home, growing up, my father always manned the grill and he thought it was so odd that I took the grilling reins when I set up my own household.

    So sweet that Mike shovels the path so you can continue in winter! We're an all-year-round grill family, too.

    I'm jealous of your dinner. xo~m.
