G has been away a lot for work recently and so I’ve been experiencing spending large amounts of time cooking for one for pretty much the first time in my life. You see, G and I met very early at university and never lived more than about 5 minutes away from each other and I used to cook a lot for her (and others). Then G and I moved in together, got married and all the time I’m always cooking for two or more. Simple answer is cooking for one is kinda rubbish and so when G is back it’s really nice to put a bit more thought into what we’re eating – not just will it be nice, quick and easy to do after work but what does it remind me of. The upshot of that is I remembered a dish I hadn’t made since we were in second year of university. A dish that after I made it G asked me to make it again and again until I grew tired of it and forgot about it. A dish that is actually incredibly simple and quick and leaves wonderful leftovers for the next day – a dish so good that once I made it for G and we reminisced I ended up making it just for myself, over and over again because sometimes cooking for one isn’t rubbish, not when it tastes delicious, lasts for multiple days and makes you remember happy memories. So, I restarted an obsession with soba noodles and nori wrapped salmon.
