oranges

Single girl cooking,

In my tiny fridge + freezer I currently have these things -

Freezer:
frozen fruit, breakfast sausage, frozen assorted vegetables, chicken breast, meatballs

Vegetables + fruit:
spinach, butternut squash cubes, tomato soup from Trader Joe's, carrots, an avocado, tangerines, tomatoes, zucchini

Carbs:
a pot of rice, tortillas, bread

Protein:
eggs, bacon, turkey

Other:
mango juice, teriyaki sauce, Tapatio hot sauce, butter and leftover duck curry.

I have to use these things. In bold are things I need to use or eat ASAP.

So basically I'm cooking for one in a tiny living space that I'm technically not supposed to be cooking in. No oven or stove. I have learned how to make pretty good food using just a microwave, contraband rice cooker and toaster oven. Today, I'm eating teriyaki chicken over spinach and rice with a microwave-made poached egg. Tried to take a photo but it's just unappealing looking. Need to learn how to make attractive single girl food, apparently.
