Alone in the Kitchen

It is the privilege of loneliness; in privacy one may do as one chooses.
Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway

I never got back to the “Nag” yesterday to write a prompt. So here’s one this morning based on a delicious anthology I just read called Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant: Confessions of Cooking for One and Dining Alone.

Write about a meal you eat when you are completely alone. Do you cook a gourmet dinner or do you eat crackers and peanut butter, Cocoa Puffs and soy milk, pizza waffles, or spaghetti out of a can?
The rituals people have with food especially when they are alone are interesting glimpses into their lives. Of course be descriptive but remember to tell a story…write your essay so that your readers will be engaged with your life and what you choose to eat when you are alone. Now get back to work!

Lovingly,
The Writing Nag
