Recipes for the Single Person in A Share House | Deconstructed no burrito Mexican dinner!

As I’m a single person who lives in shared accommodation (and have been for many years), the one frustration I have with most recipes and cook-books is that they are NOT aimed at someone who has limited storage space (and cooks only for one person – themselves). In most share-house situations I’ve been in I have only had limited space in the freezer, one “shelf” in the fridge and the same in the pantry/cupboard – so naturally I cannot ‘hoard’ a lot of ingredients.   The other thing is that I live on a limited budget too at the moment (less then $50 per week) for groceries. This first post is the start of many – to find more similar recipes … click: “Single Person Share House Recipes”

Layers of lettuce, shredded carrot, diced tomato and cucumber, lean organic beef mince with capsicum salsa, mashed avocado, a little corneal of sour cream finished with a sprinkle of herbed buffalo feta.#yummiegoodness Note: If you do not eat beef, red kidney beans and green beans and cauliflower work a treat. This would be an easy dish for you x 2 or 4 if you get 500 g mince otherwise just ask a butcher to give you 250g lean beef.  All you need is 1 carrot, 1 tomato, 1 Lebanese cucumber, a small bag of lettuce leaves, 1 avo, 1 jar of salsa (any kind you like), lime, and small tub of sour cream if you want it but not necessary. A little sprinkle of any cheese you like (the deli will sell you what ever amount if what ever cheese you want. Cook and chop save half in a container layered and ready to go for lunch or dinner the next day! Chicken or turkey mince would be great with this and fish too otherwise veggo as suggested!
