  1. Fish tacos! It was my go to meal during my hubs deployment.

  2. I'm not very exciting, my favorite recipe to make when I'm alone is mac&cheese.

  3. Garlic Parmesan pasta: Butter, basil, garlic and parmesan :)
    Thanks for the chance!

  4. Grilled steak with salad on the side. Love steaks!

  5. Quesadillas! Yummy and easy!

  6. If its just me, I make a big pot of soup, Broccoli Cheese, being my favorite! I will eat on that all week with some sandwiches!

  8. Shrimp and Parmesan noodles! Delicious and healthy!

  9. Sesame chicken! My husband doesn't like chinese food, so when he is away I fix it.
